Whoo, hoo, "school's out for the summer..." Quick name that tune! Okay, well school is only out for me until Tuesday, I decided to take a summer class after all. But I am thoroughly enjoying this extra time I've had between finals and summer classes, mostly doing nothing but that is fine with me. I was perusing a new-to-me blog today (the velvet bird) and I came across the most interesting post about clearing up problematic skin with apple cider vinegar. Although I had pretty much perfect skin in my teens, it decided to act up in my 20s, much to my chagrin, so I am going to give this apple cider toner a try.
(buy me here)
Anyway, the post sparked an interest in apple cider vinegar and I began googling the benefits of this acidic stuff and let me tell you, it seems to be the cure for what ails ya'. Well not every ailment, I mean this isn't snake oil, but I do love finding out about natural remedies. It is important for the cider to be organic and raw (it contains the nutrients and bacteria not found in the clear apple cider vinegar that has been processed) and has been known to help with high blood pressure, cholesterol, problematic skin, diabetes, allergies, and arthritis. Of course there isn't the necessary research for doctors to prescribe this as a treatment (and why would there be because then pharmaceutical companies wouldn't have anything to gain...) but I think it's worth a shot. Just be sure to dilute the ACV (through my googling I learned that is how all the in-the-know peeps refer to apple cider vinegar) with water, it is vinegar after all and highly acidic. ACV is inexpensive and can be found at most supermarkets and health food stores, go on google it for yourself I know you probably are just a teeny bit interested in this wonder vinegar.
