DIY: Apple Cider Vinegar As A Toner

DIY Apple Cider Vinegar Toner

Have you checked out the  DIY SUGAR SCRUB I had up last week? It smells divine! This week I have for you probably one of the best kept secrets in skin care. Today, we’re dishing on Apple Cider Vinegar Toner DIY.  I don’t know about everyone else, but I have struggled for a long time, in search of the perfect toner and nothing quite worked the way it said it would. Finally, I asked my dermatologist if she had any recommendations and what she shared with me shocked me. I could actually use something from the grocery store and get pretty good results. I was intrigued so I tried it out, that was about 4 years ago and I have to say, no matter what, I still go through different toners from different brands but I always come back to this little gem. How amazing is it that you can use something as trivial as apple cider vinegar as a toner? Awesomesauce!

Using Apple Cider Vinegar as a toner can help improve your complexion, keep your skin feeling soft, fight off blackheads and breaks outs as well as restore your skins natural pH balance. Apple cider vinegar used as a toner has also been known to help with redness and blemishes on the skin.

1| Apple Cider Vinegar (grab at your local grocery store)
2| Spray Bottle (travel section at the drugstore for $1)
3| Water 
4| Cotton Balls

1| Mix 1 part ACV for every 2 parts water to fill your spray bottle. 
2| Shake Well
3| Spray Onto Your Face
4| Optional: Blot with a cotton ball or just let dry
5| Continue your skin care routine as usual. 

1| Store in the fridge for a refreshing cooling effect.
2| If you’re blotting with the cotton balls, do it and *upward & outward* motion.

It’s that easy! This DIY apple cider vinegar toner will leave your skin glowing after each use, it will help to lock in moisture from your other products. I usually buy the vinegar from the supermarket to use for my facial toner because I use it for other things as well but if you’re looking for something more organic you can check out Whole Foods and grab it there but I’ve found the same results with a cheap $1 bottle at Walmart.
**Other uses for Apple Cider Vinegar 

  • When mixed 1 part vinegar to 1 part water you can use it as a hair rinse.
  • Drop 4 Tbsps into the bath for all over softness
