Beauty products today are not expensive, but can also irritate the skin. Some are also ineffective, so you end up wasting your money. Instead of using these commercial products, you may want to simply look into your kitchen and find a bottle of vinegar. It turns out that this acidic substance can be a part of your beauty regimen. Here are the things you can do with vinegar for your skin and hair:


1. Moisten a cotton ball with a mixture of two cups of water and a tablespoon of vinegar. Apply on your face and leave it there. No need to rinse. This will:

  • Tighten your skin
  • Stimulate circulation on the face with the help of acetic acid and alpha-hydroxy acid
  • Minimize pores

2. In a tub filled with warm water, pour eight ounces of vinegar and let your body soak there for at least 15 minutes. This helps:

  • Soothe your skin
  • Restore balance of skin’s pH level

3. With four cups of water, add half a cup of vinegar. Soak a washcloth with the mixture and apply to your skin. This helps:

  • Soothe sunburned skin
  • Promote healing
  • Restore pH level of skin
  • Protect against skin blistering

4. Douse a cotton ball with pure vinegar and wipe on your skin. This is great for razor bumps. If the bumps are irritated, put some honey first before you apply vinegar. Let it sit for five minutes and then rinse with water. Vinegar will:

  • Soften the skin
  • Relieve the aggravated skin
  • Help hairs grow easier

5. Leave a cotton ball with vinegar on bruised skin. Apply bandage to secure the cotton there and leave it on for an hour. This will help:

  • Calm the injury
  • Improve circulation
  • Quicken the healing process
