When I was young, I presumed that blackheads meant, “your skin was filthy” – but it’s not the case right now. As I understand that blackheads form when the sebum/oil in clogged pores interacts with the air.
If you are struggling with blackheads, I’ve done some research on few DIY home remedies that would ban those pesky blackheads for good.
Do you use toner as part of your beauty routine? Many people skip toner, but you may not realize how important toner is to your beauty routine. In fact, with a quality toner, you can use toner instead of cleanser on your face to save some time – it works well as a face wash.
Of course, you need the right toner if you’re going to use it as a cleanser and a DIY apple cider vinegar toner offers the perfect option.
Goodbye Acne Scars Toner
- 1 tablespoon of (Apple) Cider Vinegar* (Do not add this if you have sensitive skin. Add 1 tablespoon of Green tea instead)
- 5 tablespoons of pure Rose Water (create your own rose water – instructions here)
- 1 teaspoon of aloe gel/juice or vegetable glycerine for moisturizing + nourishing your skin (you can put more or less depending on your personal preference)
Instructions: Mix all the ingredients together in a sealable dark container and store it in a fridge.
Application: Shake the mixture and take some in your palm or put some on a cotton ball, and then dab onto the area you tend to get acne/pimples. Note: Avoid eye area!
Many of the popular facial cleansers happen to be alkaline. However, the skin usually does better when it is just a bit acidic (around 4.7 pH). In fact, the skin doesn’t just look better when a bit acidic, but studies show that it loses less water when a bit acidic as well.
If you don’t believe the research, try this yourself. Try using your cleanser for a few days without using a toner and see how your skin reacts. Then, use a toner after your cleanser for a few days and note the difference.
It will probably convince you of the benefits of using a toner. However, you don’t want to use a toner that is extremely acidic, since skin that is too acidic can result in problems as well.
When making your own toner with apple cider vinegar, it’s essential to get the right proportion of the vinegar to make sure it isn’t too acidic.
It’s best to use about a seven to one ratio of dilution when making your apple cider toner. It’s acidic enough to turn alkaline skin just a bit acidic and you won’t have to worry about making skin too acidic.
