Move over coconuts and lemons, there’s a new super-ingredient in business. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is taking over our lives, and we’re in love! Squeezed out of fresh apples and fermented with yeast, this probiotic, anti-bacterial magic liquid is godsent for everything from weight loss to balancing diabetes.

But our favorite ACV superpower is its miraculous ability to prevent or cure acne! For everyone (including me) who fights every week with stubborn acne and their marks, behold this skincare specialist. ACV helps deal with acne in more than a few ways and is a true savior.

Need proof? Here are a few amazing reasons to switch to this master-ingredient:

#1 It’s A natural exfoliant

This wonder liquid in enriched with natural AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) that gently unclogs pores, without any harsh friction. Apple Cide Vinegar cleans out the pores and eliminates any acne causing bacteria in the process.

#2 It balances pH levels

Your skin functions best at a certain pH level, that is usually disrupted with soaps, pollutants and other environmental factors. ACV brings back your skin’s natural pH level, making it impossible to allow extra oil to accumulate on your skin. Too much oil is breading ground for acne-causing bacteria.

ACV has natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, which help heal any infections and keeps your skin healthy. It cleans up blackheads and whiteheads, leaving your skin fresh and pure. It also helps in healing previous acne marks and fresh acne tend to heal quicker with regular use.
