Dr. Oz: How to use vinegar in your beauty ritual
Vinegar is so much more than a tasty dressing ingredient for a refreshing summer salad. Take a look below and find out how Dr. Oz recommends we use vinegar to keep our skin, hair and teeth beautiful and healthy.
Don’t spend a fortune on miracle products which promise to get rid of the dandruff. Dr. Oz recommends mixing equal parts water and vinegar in spray bottle. Spray the mixture on your hair after you have shampooed and rinsed it. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, after rinse it with lukewarm water. The specialist recommends using this mixture twice a week to prevent relapsing.
No more smelly feet
Soak baby-wipes in vinegar and use them to clean your feet. This will prevent bacteria which give off the bad odour from developing. Also, Dr. Oz recommends using this solution for the armpit area as well. Don’t worry, the vinegar smell will go away once the skin is dry.
Dr. Oz claims that vinegar has spectacular effects on the skin. Soak a clean washcloth in vinegar diluted with water and apply it on your face for a few minutes. It will leave the skin softer, brighter and it will absorb the excess sebum. Dr. Oz explains that vinegar has the role to balance the natural pH of the skin. You can also use vinegar to fade away pimples and brown spots, and it’s an all-round great facial toner.
According to Dr. Oz, if you add a cup of vinegar in your bath water after sun exposure, after just 10 minutes you will feel refreshed and pain-free, as vinegar quickens the healing of sunburns.
Sparkling white teeth
For all you smokers and coffee-drinkers out there, Dr. Oz recommends applying vinegar on stained teeth, due to its whitening effect. Be careful to only use this treatment occasionally, as the teeth’s enamel may be damaged by prolonged exposure to such a highly acidic substance.
For a gentler effect you can mix a spoon of vinegar in a glass of water and use it as mouthwash.
