There are endless detox bath recipes I could tell you about that has the right amount of detox and relaxation, but none that benefit the skin with a single ingredient as much as an apple cider vinegar bath. *ACV = APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Why ACV Baths?
Apple cider vinegar is a versatile natural remedy and natural home product. It can be infused with herbs to be a natural cold remedy and health tonic or sipped to relieve heartburn. When sprayed on skin, it takes the sting out of a sunburn and can be used as a foot soak to help alleviate athlete’s foot!
ACV is a beneficial natural beauty ingredient!
Apple Cider Vinegar has a natural source of B-vitamins, Vitamin C and trace minerals, making it nourishing to skin. Since the skin is the body’s largest organ, it is possible to obtain these nutrients from soaking and to nourish the skin. ACV is naturally nourishing and moisturizing and can soften skin and hair.
ACV is naturally acidic and helps restore balance to the skins pH!
Did you know that ACV can help naturally kill fungus and bacteria on the skin and offers relief for many with eczema and other skin conditions?! Vinegar is often recommended for skin problems like eczema, dandruff, and dry skin. These same antibacterial properties and beneficial acids make vinegar effective against zits. A tiny dab of ACV can often help reverse a zit overnight.
For this reason, AVC baths are also sometimes recommended for urinary tract infections as the vinegar can help kill the yeast or fungus and create an environment where it is difficult for infection to thrive. ACV is also a potential remedy for warts and athlete’s foot for this reason.
How to Take an Apple Cider Vinegar Bath:
- All you need is a bath and some ACV.
- Once or twice a week, fill a tub with warm to hot water and add 1-2 cups of apple cider vinegar.
- Personally, I soak for 20-30 minutes, using a washcloth to clean my face and making sure to get my hair wet as well.
- After bathing, rinse off in a cool shower in the morning.
