Apple Cider Vinegar can have miraculous benefits if used in the correct way. Read further to know more.


As the name suggests, Apple Cider Vinegar is made from Apples. It tastes like apple juice if you add 2 spoons of ACV and honey in a glass of water. There is an old saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. It is that great for your body and health. Apple Cider Vinegar is widely used by everyone in the form of supplements and morning drinks for weight loss. It helps to speed up the process of weight loss. But, did you know this product has many more amazing benefits on your skin, hair, and your health? Let us discuss this in more detail.

Apple Cider Vinegar is the only type of vinegar that can be used to consume as well as apply on skin and hair.

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for Skin

Removing Sun Tan

This is the most effective method of removing tan and dead skin cells from your skin. I have tried this myself and it works wonders. ACV also helps in removing sunburns. However, it is advised to not immediately apply this on your skin after sunburn. Let the burning sensation subside and then use it to even your skin tone. If you use ACV every day, you will see great results in less than a month.


ACV helps to remove the dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and bacteria from your skin and also prevents clogging of pores. There are many cleansers and facewash which contain apple cider vinegar. On regular usage, it will make your skin soft, smooth, and supple.

How to Use:

Mix Apple Cider Vinegar with an equal quantity of water and apply it to your skin with cotton. For example, if you are taking one spoon of ACV, then add 1 spoon of water. ACV is safe to use on the face and body. However, if you have sensitive skin, try to avoid using it on your face.


Always do a patch test before applying or using any of these remedies.

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for Hair

Helps Treat Dandruff

ACV is a very effective remedy for treating dandruff and other scalp-related issues. It fights bacteria and infection and cleans your scalp. I have tried this myself when I had severe sticky dandruff. You can see great results in just one use and if used regularly, you will never face any scalp-related issues and your hair will become healthy.

How to Use:

Mix ACV with an equal quantity of water and apply it all over your scalp with a cotton bud. Leave it for half an hour and then shampoo your hair.

Conditions your Hair

This might not seem true or believable but it is. Apple Cider Vinegar is a great conditioner and it makes your hair super shiny and soft. However, if you are sensitive to a strong smell, this part might be difficult for you. But still, you can use it before shampoo to treat your scalp.

How to Use:

Mix 2 spoon ACV in one mug of filtered water and rinse your hair with this mixture after you shampoo your hair. Towel dry your hair and do not rinse it again with water. Once your hair gets dry, the smell will also go away and your hair will be soft and smooth. Do give this a try, it’s amazing.
