We're back in the kitchen again for week 5, where we take common ingredients you can likely find in your fridge or pantry and learn how to play with them in our natural skincare practice.
Alrightie, where are my ladies with acne prone skin or with hyperpigmentation/ melasma at? We may be the ones who benefit most from this week's ingredient.
Rich in AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) that work to gently exfoliate skin by dissolving dead skin cells. Topically applying it to skin delivers beneficial enzymes proteins and good bacteria. And just when you think it couldn’t get any better we find out it’s antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiseptic and helps balance our skin’s Ph, and that’s a big win in skincare because a balanced Ph keeps moisture in and irritants out. Yayy!
What’s this kitchen superhero you ask? Apple Cider Vinegar or ACV for short. When choosing an ACV, look for raw & fermented to get the best quality for the greatest benefits. Our skin can benefit from a healthy dose of ACV both topically and by consuming them in our diet regularly.
Always - always - always dilute! At Least by half: 1 part ACV to 1 part water but I recommend diluting even more, I give you a recipe in the video.
