Today a friend of mine came over for supper. We ate salmon burgers (my new favorite thing) and a salad which I promptly smothered in balsamic vinaigrette. This inspired me to enlighten you on the magic of the all powerful vinegar.

This elixir does more than wake up the flavor of food and potentially help you lose weight, it’s also a godsend to your skin. Vinegar regulates the pH of your skin, improves circulation to the face (think rosy cheeks and fresh skin-tone) as well as remove excess oil from the skin’s surface. All this action for much less than any cleanser or lotion at a drugstore. So grab some magic and use these tips!

Hair

Buildup remover: Yes, I boasted of vinegar’s magical skin-saving qualities, but it does wonders for hair that’s full of product build-up and it creates shine. Mix 1 part (apple or regular) vinegar and one part water and pour all over hair after shampooing. Rinse as much as desired.

Body

Cleansing bath: Pour up to a cup of vinegar into bathwater. Relax and reap the benefits!

Face

Vinegar washer: Cleanse skin with your regular face wash and follow with a mixture 1 tbsp vinegar to 1 cup water as a toner.

Vinegar cooler: Make vinegar ice cubes and place on a zit in the morning to reduce swelling and speed up the healing process.
