Skin in need of a serious pore-purging? For a DIY acne remedy, combine equal parts apple cider vinegar and bentonite clay. You can use this as a face mask or a spot treatment! “ACV is a natural astringent, so it balances out sebum levels, making it particularly well suited for oily and acne-prone complexions,” says Tara Mackey, author of Cured by Nature and founder of The Organic Life. And bentonite clay draws out toxins and impurities. Don’t miss these blemish-busting face masks.
Apple cider vinegar contains antimicrobial components, which act as a natural cleanser for the skin, while its alpha hydroxy acids and acetic acid gently dissolve dead skin and stimulate circulation, leaving your complexion looking brighter and tighter. “After rinsing my face with water, I like to soak a cotton ball with ACV and gently wipe my face in circles to wash away impurities,” says Jacqueline Schaffer, MD, wellness expert, founder of Schique Skincare, and author of Irresistible You.
