Apple Cider Vinegar
It’s just what it says it is! Made from fermented apple juice, ACV generally hits somewhere in the 3-5 pH range. Since human skin hovers around the 5 pH mark, ACV is considered skin-friendly because of its relatively close pH, but its higher levels of acid content makes it better at killing off microbes that you don’t want around, which means it’s great at spurring cell exfoliation.
Benefits: ACV wards off skin issues, like acne, caused by bacteria due to its acidity. It also promotes brightening and helps to erase pigmentation through exfoliation!
Skin Types: Oily and acne prone skin types benefit the most from apple cider vinegar’s bacteria squashing properties.
