How Your Skin Can Benefit from Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a natural way to treat minor skin conditions such as insect bites.

Patients are always asking me for natural or non-chemical remedies. Sometimes, there are good ones, sometimes not.

Inexpensive apple cider vinegar (it need not be organic) is a good one. Soak a cotton ball with it and use it these three ways to treat minor skin conditions:

1. Bug Bites: Reduces itching and swelling of bug bites, especially mosquito bites.

2. Athlete’s Foot: Mix 3 parts vinegar with 1 part water and soak feet for 15 minutes once or twice a day. It can help eliminate the fungus.

3. Smelly Pits: Sweat doesn’t smell bad. It’s the bacteria that breaks down your sweat that does. Rubbing apple cider vinegar on your pits can help kill bacteria and odor.

  1. Also does wonders internally. Thanks for the tips!

  2. Hi everyone. I’ve a question about natural skin care products. Don’t know if this is the right place to ask it, but here it is.
    Did you heard about a natural skin care brand named Be&Be (Be Beauty & Be Healthy)?
    I’ve seen an advert with a promotional gift pack (page http://goo.gl/VCQui, and would like your opinion about their products.
    Is there someone who has tried them? What do you think?

  3. Apple cider is not bad, but you have no idea where the cider is coming. I personally prefer natural, but lab tested things. I was recently in south Korea, and discovered a brand called Nutree, it has a bunch of all “natural” products. The one I like is V8, you get all of the vitamins and none of the peals.

    Here’s the site I use, it has free shipping for the USA and it’s in english, bonus!
