One of the most talked about, and most effective natural solutions to acne is apple cider vinegar. This substance has been curing acne problems for decades and now it’s finally getting the recognition it deserves. It’s one of nature’s best solutions to acne. What’s special about the product is that it improves both your skin and your overall health.
The product is made from apple juice that goes through a fermentation process in which the sugars turn to vinegar. It should be cold-pressed and unpasteurized. This is in order to preserve ‘the mother’, an important element to ACV. ‘The mother’ contains a lot of valuable nutrients and can be seen as a strings at the bottom of the bottle. It may look cloudy but you should be able to see it.
Internal Consumption Benefits
There are a number of different benefits for internal consumption. It will really do a wonder for your internal organs and digestion system. This will help your body clear toxins and kill acne causing bacteria. Here are just some of the many benefits:
- Lowers blood sugar levels
- Lowers insulin
- Gets rid of toxic bacteria
- Maintains a good pH balance
- Helps with digestion
- Good for intestines
- Prevents candida
Ways to Drink It
You might be hesitant to start drinking ACV. But don’t worry, I was too at first. I’ll also be the first to admit that I don’t really like the taste- it stings a bit. But after awhile I got used to it and now I don’t mind drinking it. It all comes down to finding your preferred method of consumption.
There are a couple of different ways to drink ACV. My preferred method is to just take it as a shot. You can pour 2 tablespoons into a cup or glass and drink it all at once. There will be an aftertaste but it won’t last long. The second method is to take two tablespoons and dilute it with water to create a drink. You can add organic honey to the water in order to give it better flavor.
In addition to internal use, you can also apply it directly to your skin. ACV can make your skin pH neutral and stop acne from spreading. But be careful, the substance is highly concentrated. For that reason it’s best to dilute it with water. You should aim for a 1:5 ratio. 1 part vinegar to five parts water. If you have sensitive skin then you should dilute it even more. After dilution, you can pour the liquid onto a cotton ball and rub it on your face. You should rub more onto the problem areas of your skin.
The Brand to Buy
By far, the number one brand to buy is Braggs. It’s probably the only brand worth buying. No other brand really compares when it comes to quality. But if you do go for another brand, then make sure it has ‘the mother’. Braggs was first established in 1912 and they have been the industry leader for over 100 years now. The business is family owned and operated.
Another advantage is the price. A 32 fluid ounce glass bottle is available on Amazon. Overall it’s well worth buying a bottle and trying the apple cider vinegar acne treatment. The results may surprise you.
