Apple Cider Vinegar is the amazing beauty product you should be utilizing!

We’ve talked about the benefits of baking soda before, coconut oil and more. Today we’re talking apple cider vinegar – and the most amazing 10 facts we could wrangle up about the household item!

According to Huffington Post, there are some pretty amazing benefits of apple cider vinegar! Here are 10 ways you can add apple cider vinegar to your beauty routine!

Hair rinse: Skip harsh shampoos and wash away buildup with an apple cider vinegar rinse. When used as a follow-up to baking soda, this do-it-yourself treatment makes strands shinier, reduces frizz and seals cuticles. It also simulates the scalp to promote hair growth.

Toner: Psoriasis sufferers praise apple cider vinegar for reducing inflammation. Apply a few drops to a cotton ball and rub on your T-zone or other dry spots to prevent breakouts and minimize blemishes. Scarlett Johansson swears by this trick!

Mouthwash: Mix apple cider vinegar with water, then swish around in your mouth. This antiseptic will break down plaque and bad breath-causing bacteria.

Face mask: When you combine equal parts apple cider vinegar and Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, you get one pretty awesome mask. Leave this detoxifying, deep-pore treatment on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.

Bath solution: The next time you get ready to slip into a warm bath, add one to two capfuls of apple cider vinegar. It draws toxins out of the body, leaving behind toned and moisturized skin.

Wart removal: Can’t afford surgery to get rid of warts? Try placing a cotton pad soaked in apple cider vinegar on top, then secure with a bandage. Leave on overnight and remove in the morning. If you stick to this consistently for a week, you should start to see results. (Warning: Don’t pick at your skin as the wart dries up.)

Foot soak: Go the natural route with your at-home pedicure and use apple cider vinegar to soothe aching and swollen feet. This provides instant relief for pregnant women, runners, high-heel lovers and flip-flop wearers.

Sunburn remedy: Laying out in the sun is fun until you get burned. Relieve pain and minimize peeling skin by applying a wash cloth soaked in apple cider vinegar to the area.

Age spots and varicose veins treatment: Many women claim that drinking apple cider vinegar (with water) maintains youthful-looking skin. But a way to stop signs of aging, including age spots and varicose veins, is to simply dab it on before going to bed.

Deodorant: The smell of apple cider vinegar is putrid, but it pales in comparison to underarm odor. Rub a little into your pits and the odor will eventually neutralize.

Introducing: The Newest COVERGIRL!

I am officially old now. I had no idea who Becky G was prior to her being announced as the new COVERGIRL. I checked out her videos and I really like her, she reminds me a lot of the female rappers from the early 90′s. Well now I am in the know on the most tubular talent all the kids are dancing to at the sock hop.

 

Introducing the nueva COVERGIRL! The Brand has signed emerging young talent Becky G as the newest face of the beauty brand. An accomplished singer, songwriter and rapper (at the age of just 16), Becky G will add her own unique street style to bring beauty, beats and COVERGIRL confidence to every block. Born and raised in the Inglewood section of LA, the Mexican-American superstar’s lifelong ambition has always been to stay proud of who she is and where she came from.

Becky recently wrapped her first COVERGIRL shoot and will be appearing in national TV and print advertising for the brand this summer.

“Becky G is such a relatable and powerful role model, who, from a very young age, has advocated individualism and paying respect to where you come from and where you want to go,” said Esi Eggleston Bracey, VP and General Manager, COVERGIRL Cosmetics. “She’s a smart, motivated and strong-willed young woman who knows exactly what she wants to do in life, and it’s that attitude that the COVERGIRL brand loves about her and identifies with. Becky is a star on the rise, and we’re excited to welcome her into the COVERGIRL family.”

Becky G’s musical style is all about creating trends and rocking a unique flavor in her fashion and beauty looks. As the first chapter of her COVERGIRL story, Becky will be joining the brand to celebrate beauty, beats and “confianza” in every girl, on every block. In the months ahead, Becky will debut many looks from the brand’s new collection, including ones featuring the fired-up, volumizing COVERGIRL Flamed Out Mascara. Rocking the mic, her lips and nails will be in the spotlight showcasing COVERGIRL Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm, providing a hint of sheer, beautiful color; and COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Brilliant Glosstinis, which are mini versions of Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in tropical, glossy colors perfect for summer.
