I have often been told unfiltered apple cider vinegar is the best sensitive skin care product available and of course it only costs pennies to use daily.
This surprised me at first because I associated the taste with the feel and did not think it would be good for your skin. Wouldn’t it dry out your skin I thought? Apparently not.
In fact ACV contains beta-carotene and pectin as well as many vitamins and minerals that are vital to healthy skin. So much so that I would venture to say it could stand its own against many of the costly sensitive skin care products you currently use.
But what about the stink you ask? Who wants to go around smelling of vinegar?
Surprisingly, at least to me, the smell disappears within a few minutes and is no longer noticeable. Of course you can always apply some nice smelling oils like lavender or rosemary to make sure no stray vinegar odor is detectible. Some of these essential oils are in themselves very soothing and good for your skin.
The point is vinegar can be used as a very healthy skin care product with many benefits to its credit. Did you know that It:
If you have an example of sensitive skin care that you would like to share please use the form at the bottom of this page to tell us about it.
Meanwhile, here are some examples for you to read about.
One of the most common skin care issues these days is ACNE. If you don’t suffer from this irritating problem yourself I am sure you know someone else who does.
Sensitive skin care aside, no matter what skin type the majority of young people as well as many adults will face this issue at least once in their lifetime. Most resort to expensive creams many of which, in the case of sensitive skin, will cause other problems like pink or itchy skin or rash reactions.
You don’t have to put yourself through that and sensitive skin care doesn't have to be expensive because …
Vinegar is an excellent product for clearing up a breakout of acne, as well as reducing potential scarring or discoloration of your skin with virtually no side affects.
Just mix vinegar equally with water and pat it on your skin for a nice fresh invigorating feeling. It also shrinks your pores and eliminates the shiny patches.
Acne is common for young people but what about those of us at the other end of the life cycle. If you are a bit older you may be surprised to hear that apple cider vinegar can also be used in Age Spot Removal.
Vinegar has also been known to painlessly remove warts in a relatively short period of time.
My favorite skin care use for vinegar is also the one that I was most surprised about.
When I was about 21 years old I had managed to go several years without getting sunburn and I was almost convinced that my skin was no longer susceptible to moderate exposure.
One especially hot sunny day I was reintroduced to the power of the sun coupled with the total lack of common sense on my part. I did not use any sun tan lotion and soon found myself with a rather painful burn.
Check out my page on sunburns, for the rest of my story. I promise you will be glad you did.
Vinegar doesn’t just help sunburns. Try it as a burn treatment for superficial burns that do not require medical treatment.
Eczema is a skin condition characterized by dead flaky skin and inflammation which shows up as itchy red patches.
Apple Cider Vinegar can effectively relieve your eczema in about a month without any side effects.
Athletes Foot is very common but before you lay out a lot of cash it is best to look for cheap home remedies that you may have in your kitchen pantry. The malic acid content of vinegar makes it a very effective treatment for athletes foot.
No matter what your sensitive skin care issues, I recommend you try vinegar first before paying for any expensive lotions or over the counter drugs.
You may be pleasantly surprised.
As you may already know, I also have a website called Essential Oil Remedies and I have found an excellent essential oil for this problem.
I have a page dedicated to Skin Treatment Using Essential Oils that you may find interesting.
