Can You Use Apple Cider Vinegar To Remove Makeup? Here's What You Need To Know
If you're a beauty and health guru like me, you probably already know that apple cider vinegar works wonders when it comes to detoxing, lowering cholesterol and more. But the question that seems to be causing the most buzz on the Internet is whether or not apple cider vinegar can be used to remove makeup. While the answer isn't definitely no, multiple sources, such as Mind Body Green , say that this household product does have other things it's better suited for when it comes to skin care.
According to Health Ambition, apple cider vinegar has both antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, making it a great tool for acne prevention. It also contains powerful alpha hydroxy acids, which can be helpful in removing dead skin. In fact, many commercial skin care brands sell products that contain this acid, but apple cider vinegar actually contains higher levels than most toners sold by beauty brands, and is available at the local grocery store. While there's never a guarantee that it works for everyone, if you're ballin' on a budget and need a cost-effective, natural acne remedy, this may worth a try!
As a general rule, natural oils are a better choice for makeup removers because oil helps break down waterproof substances used in products like eyeliner and mascara gently and efficiently. If you clicked this article to learn more about natural makeup removers, you're in luck! Since apple cider vinegar seems to be a better option for toner, here are a few equally as inexpensive household ingredients that'll help you take that waterproof eyeliner off.
