Apple Cider Vinegar, my new best friend!

I first started using Apple Cider Vinegar years ago when I was a teenager and trying to lose weight.

Then I lost touch with it but I just recently rekindled my relationship! And we’ve been growing strong ever since!



We can all benefit from its qualities. I use it to clean my house, my skin, my hair and to curb my appetite. I only use a raw, organic, unfiltered and unpasteurized apple cider vinegar (and you should too). It can be found at any health food or specialty store, such as Müller, Globus, or Jelmoli. These stores are all over Zurich and Switzerland in general. My favorite brand is Biofarm, Suisse made.

Oh and rumor has it that Scarlett Johansson has been using apple cider vinegar as her face wash for years 🙂

For the purpose of this post, I will only discuss the beauty benefits:

Shiny hair

The Swiss water is absolutely amazing. You can even drink directly out of a fountain without fear. But as anything it also has its drawback as it contains high levels of Calcium. And what does Calcium do to our hair? It dries it 🙁

So if you’ve tried every remedy possible and nothing has brought back your hair’s natural shine and suppleness, then Apple cider vinegar is the answer. Use it as a rinse (1/2 a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and a cup of cold water) after shampooing, several times a week.

Healthy and glowy skin  

I cleanse my face with apple cider vinegar and the results have been amazing. My skin feels clean, soft, and best of all the lines and age spots are lighter! I pour a little on a cotton ball and apply it all over my face then rinse it off with alot of water. But you can also dilute it with 2 parts water then apply to your face with a cotton ball then rinse. A little of it can also be left on your skin overnight to fade the age spots or acne scars even more. Just warn your partner about the smell 🙂

Lastly, if you get sunburnt, add a cup of apple cider vinegar to your bath, and relax in it for about 10 minutes. Your skin should feel much better after.

Be careful not to come close to your eyes because it will sting!
