DIY Listerine Foot Soak - Heal Cracked Heels At Home ! 1

DIY Listerine Foot Soak Recipe: With the summer approaching, we all want to be sporting funky slippers and heels. But the winters ruined our feet because no one has the time to take care of their feet of all things in their busy lives. So here we are, with cracked, roughed-up feet. And those same old creams won’t work either that effectively, nor that quickly.

If this is your story too, and you are wondering if that crazy, crazy idea you had vaguely heard abt mouthwash working wonders for feet is true, well good news: it is true.

Seriously, a half an hour’s soak of Listerine mouthwash is the answer to all your foot problems. No kidding. As wacky as this idea sounds, the more you think abt it, the more sense it makes. An antiseptic mouthwash is used to kill the bacteria in such a sensitive part of our body. When the same antiseptic, soft treatment is given to our rock hard feet, it will end up softening and healing them. But of course, we need to give it time to work its magic.

So there we have our DIY for cracked heels.

Listerine Foot Soak Recipe

The basic recipe is to just add a cup of Listerine or any antiseptic mouthwash to warm water and you are done. But for better results, adding vinegar works amazingly well. It can be white or apple cider and it is totally optional. So the DIY should go like:

– Take a small plastic tub.

– Add 1 cup Listerine to it.

– Add 1 cup Vinegar.

– Add 2 cups of warm water.

– Soak your feet in it for 30 mins.

– After 30 mins, take them out, and rub gently with pumice stone/scrubby sponge.

– Wash off the dead skin, dry feet with towel and voila!

– Moisturise if you wish to.

Please note that the quantity mentioned is just a ratio, you can add as much as you need/want, as long as you maintain the ratio. Also, the 30 mins time slab is what is ideal, you can do it for 15 minutes if you are a busy person and 1 hour if you have got the time. The more the better, though.

Do this DIY every day if you please, or once a week, depending on the repair needed.


You will notice a difference after the first soak itself. And that is saying something. But what is even more awesome is that while it works wonders for cracked heels, it works wonders for your entire feet actually. It penetrates into your skin and heals it from within with its antiseptic properties. It softens them, rids them off callouses, significantly reduces swelling and also clears out bacteria.

That is more than enough to want off a mouthwash working for your feet. And even still, it offers yet another benefit as it relaxes you when you soak your feet in warm water and rest yourself for 30 minutes. It would be the best idea to indulge in this DIY after a long, tiring day.

Dry Skin Brushing 3

 Dry Skin Brushing Benefits :How easy would life be if we didn’t have to keep up with the tedious and cumbersome skin routines for every part of our body? What if there was one simple routine to take care of everything?

Dry Skin Brushing is the answer you’re looking for. The one stop shop for all our skin woes. It takes just minutes and costs absolutely nothing, and the best part is – it is completely natural. It leaves your skin smooth, healthy and glowing all at once.

It is an age old technique that has been practiced by our grandmas since the dawn of time. All you have to do is brush your skin with a brush for a few minutes every day and viola! your skin rids itself of the dead cells, paving way for better cell growth and circulation of blood.

Drys Skin Brushing Technique

Get a natural bristle brush (the harder its hair, the better). Make sure it’s natural and not synthetic. Get in your washroom, remove all your clothes and start scrubbing your body with the brush – starting with your toes and working your way towards the heart. Try to make long strides and cover every inch of your body. It might feel hard on the skin at first and do be gentle on the sensitive areas, but you will get used to it as the skin will start hardening.

When you are done, step into the shower. Don’t let the water be too cold or too hot. Choose what suits you best. After the bath, pat dry the skin and apply natural moisturizer like coconut oil or olive oil.

If you can, do this twice a day. But once a day works too. Do it continually for at least a month to see a real difference. Make sure to wash the brush once a week and dry it in sunlight to keep it germ-free.

What it does

If you’re thinking what can rub your skin with a brush possibly do – I will say that I do understand the skepticism. But the simplicity of it is what actually works.

First and foremost, it exfoliates dead skin from our body on a regular basis ie, removing them as soon as they are formed. This de-clogs the skin and allows it to breathe. Most skin problems are caused by the clogging of the skin and this prevents that. And we get the smooth and clear skin.

Secondly, it betters the circulation of our body. Stimulating the skin ensures a steady flow of not just blood, but all the fluids of our body. This results in a healthy red glow on our skin.

Third, it deters the formation of cellulite in our body. Now, cellulite is the supervillain that makes us flabby in thighs and hips and upper arms. It settles in the fat cells of our body, disrupting their growth – which results in the unattractive flab. And the fact that dry skin brushing fights cellulite alone makes it worth a try.

All these benefits combined make our skin clear, clean, glowing and promote rejuvenation and growth as well. It clears our pores, lets them breathe prompting an uncontaminated and steady flow of liquids in our body. So we not only get a beautiful skin from the outside, but we also bring balance to our body from the inside.

This routine is so inexpensive and hassle free, that there is no reason for you to start with it right now. Go find that old brush lying away in your drawer you never thought you would use.

Benefits of Coconut Water for Skin and Weightloss 1

Benefits of Coconut Water for Skin and Weightloss: It is officially the time to nose dive into milkshakes and mango shakes and sugarcane juices. I.e., enjoying the summer to the fullest. These drinks provide the much-needed coolness and are also great for our health – so it’s a win-win situation.

While you indulge in your favorite squashes and juices, do not forget the good old’ Coconut Water. It is one of the best drinks, which honestly isn’t just limited to Summers! It’s light, tasty, and healthy and you can consume it all year long. Here are some other reasons to motivate you to go out right now and get yourself some Coconut Water

Benefits of Coconut Water for Skin and Weightloss 1

Image Credit : Food Coach Expert

  1. Anti-aging

Consuming Coconut Water regularly will seriously slow down your aging process. It prevents infections and promotes cell growth, significantly reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

  1. Cleaner

If you are like me and resent buying a makeup remover separately, try Coconut Water as an alternative. Just dab some on a cotton ball and clean up your face. It will not only clean, but it will also leave you feeling fresh, deep cleansing your pores of impurities.

  1. Toner

And after you have wiped clean your face, apply the same Coconut Water on your face as a toner. Yes, it acts and both a Cleaner and a Toner. It tauts your skin, shrinking down the pores while providing A1 moisturizing. Nature is truly a blessing.

  1. Acne

Consuming it internally or externally is known to cure Acne. It starts out by reducing and healing the inflammation on the existing acne and then works towards preventing new ones from appearing. Now, it won’t work overnight. You need to be patient with this one. But it sure will show results, should you be consistent with it.

  1. Weight loss

Apart from the glorious skin benefits, Coconuts work on your body systems too. Make it a point to drink Coconut Water on a daily basis – It increases/corrects your metabolism and keeps you hydrated all day long. This works amazingly to shed off the water weight.

Of course, just the Water is not going to do it. It should be blended into a healthy lifestyle to make a positive difference.

  1. Digestion

Increased Metabolism means better digestion. Many may not realize it but digestion is a very important function and the first thing that needs to be correct with you if you wish to lose weight.

We also don’t realize that we are more or less, not 100% when it comes to digestion, given today’s lifestyle. We should strive to better our digestion. Coconut Water is one way to start towards that.

  1. Hydrated

Dehydration actively evens out any work you might be doing towards losing weight. When we are dehydrated, we tend to consume any and every kind of liquid we can get our hands on – that too in insufficient quantity – to make up for the deficiency we don’t even realize we are experiencing.

So instead of drinking those heavily sugared drinks/juices that you do, keep yourself hydrated with Coconut Water, as it’s a natural alternative which is also free of artificial sugar! How amazing is that?

  1. Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a very rampant problem these days, which certainly needs to be looked after. Increased Cholesterol leads to increased weight. Coconut Water helps in keeping your Cholesterol in check, which naturally helps in weight loss.

You can either purchase packaged Coconut Water or make it a habit go out every day and purchase some Coconuts every day. The latter sounds like work but think of it as you taking a walk every day – then it sounds like yet another step towards your healthy self. And if you decide to get the packaged one, make sure to check the label for it being 100% pure.

Biotin for Hair Facts 3

10 Must Know Biotin Facts and Myths: Biotin, even if you might not know it, is one the important vitamins you need in your body that keeps you healthy. It is a part of the B complex family, also called B7 or Vitamin H. Literally speaking, it is a water-soluble vitamin that helps in metabolism and supports nerve and cardiovascular functions. Which, in vernacular speak, means it is responsible for your beautiful skin, hair, and nails.

It is famously taken in supplement form to enhance hair texture, strength and grow healthy and strong hair. Here are some facts regarding Biotin for Hair Growth.

Biotin for Hair Facts 3

  1. Works from inside out

It starts from the inside and replenishes the roots and follicles of your hair. The first effect will be reduced hair breakage which naturally leads to more hair growth and sustainability. In the long run, you achieve strong, long hair with increased volume.

  1. Pills, Oil and Shampoo

It is available in various forms to consume and you can either choose one of the items that suits you best. Or you can take all in considered amounts.

  1. A set dosage everyday

The most common form of supplement consumption is 5000mcg. People usually consume this specific amount daily to achieve desired results.

However, many wanting faster results prefer to take two 5000msg dosages. But that is a very heavy amount and might not work for everyone. The bottom line is to not exceed 10,000mcg per day.

  1. 1000mcg is good too

If you prefer to take light dosages for general hair benefits, 1000mcg is for you. It is significantly less than other supplements and works just fine if your hair is not that damaged, to begin with. Many people prefer this dosage to keep their biotin needs in check.

Biotin for Hair Facts 2

Image Credit: Step to Health

  1. No basis

It is very important for you, as the consumer, to know that there is no evidence to support Biotin’s effect on hair growth, or that it directly influences it. But many, many people who have used it over the years have mostly had positive experiences. So there that is.

Even still, results will always vary person to person. So it is better to take a demo of sorts before you go all in.

  1. Continue for 6 months for significant results

Although one is bound to see improvement after a few weeks only, solid results will show after 6 months of continued usage. Which admittedly is a bit long to wait. But it is surely worth it.

  1. Avoid Alcohol

Regular users have reported that consumption of alcohol hinders the positive effects of biotin. So it is advised to avoid alcohol while on the biotin routine. The same is also said for antibiotics, so be careful on the meds you take while also taking biotin.

  1. Drink lots of water

Which you already should, by the way. But water helps in dissolving and digesting the supplement better. So make sure you drink as much water as you can.

  1. No side effects

Taking external supplements of biotin has absolutely no side effects on you. You can go for it without worrying about such, as this is the concern of many new/interested users.

If it won’t improve your situation, it won’t harm you either. That’s a pretty safe bet. BUT BUT BUT, moderation is best and does consult a doctor.

  1. Pregnant Ladies can also take it

Pregnancy usually creates a biotin deficiency as all your vitamins get used up in providing for the baby. Biotin supplements are actually recommended during that time. But still, consult your doctor regarding the needed dosage before you take it.

Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep Review f

Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep: I don’t even know how to begin this review. Should it be the fact that I hunted this product like maniacs in every Patanjali shop I could find? Or the very fact that I needed this product so bad because this is the only thing that could save my sorry skin!

Wait, let me start afresh. I have been fighting acne for some 11 yrs now. And even though it has now reduced to just occasional breakouts – the irreplaceable damage it did to my face was just confidence shattering!

This is where this magical Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep comes to the rescue. Read on.

Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep Review


Rs. 70 (50 gm)

My Experience with Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep

Trust me when I say this – I have tried everything for acne scars and spots. And everything works only to some extent. And I thought this was it. I have to live like this.

Earlier this year, I found out about the Divya Kanti Lep from Patanjali and how so many people are benefiting from it. I decided that this is worth a try at least. I went looking for it – only to find out that it is always out of stock. So I was left with no option but to order it online. Hence, after quite an effort, I finally got a hold of it.

And I will be honest, as much as I wanted it to cure my acne and scar hit face just like that – I wasn’t expecting it to work in just a day. It has got 11 yrs of damage to repair. Just any positive signs would have been great to assure me that this will work. And you can see the results in the pics.

Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep Review 1

You won’t feel the change after just one application. Give it at least 4 days, but it works more effectively and efficiently than anything out there. Plus, it is completely natural and has absolutely no side effects. Even if by some chance it doesn’t work for you, it won’t harm you either.

How to Use

All you have to do is make a paste of the magical powder – that’s it. What you use to make a paste out of is insignificant. You can use literally anything that works for you. I chose lemon juice – because lemon also works greatly for acne. But you can use – honey, milk, rose water, aloe Vera juice, or even tap water if you don’t have any of those.

Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep Review 5

Just make a good paste and gently apply all over face and neck. It will dry off in 10 minutes or so. But keep it on for an hour at least. Wash off with lukewarm water. Apply it daily if you are as desperate as me; otherwise alternate days, or twice or even once a week – according to your requirement. It works for all types of skin problems.

Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep Review e

Be warned, it has a very prominent smell. But you’ll get used to it by the end of the first application itself. And don’t worry; the smell doesn’t linger on at all. Nor does the yellowish tint it might leave on your hands or face. Also take care of your clothes while working with this mixture – it stains clothes pretty bad.

Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep Review d

Overall performance of Patanjali Divya Kanti Lep Review

The only negative is that it is not easily available. Given that this was Patanjali’s very first product that they launched way back in 2005, and it remains one of their best products ever, I hope this unavailability is just temporary.

Other than that, it’s simply magic. I urge each and every one of you – men and women – to try it out at least once. Whatever your skin issue is, it is sure to show positive effects on it. It is cheap and has no side effects – you have nothing to lose. Acne scars are the toughest skin problem to treat and yet it worked for me.

Yay or Nay?

A thousand times YES. I already have 3 more bottles stocked.

Nature’s Essence Gold Illuminating Face Wash

Nature’s Essence Gold Illuminating Face Wash: Having heard fairly good things about the brand, I was excited to try out this face wash from Nature’s Essence. And its contents – all natural – gave the promise of an all-natural experience as well. But Nature’s Essence Gold Illuminating Face Wash turned out to be a…

Nature’s Essence Gold Illuminating Face Wash

Price – Rs. 60 (60 ml)

My Experience with Nature’s Essence Gold Illuminating Face Wash

This face wash came as a free gift with Nature’s Essence Facial Kit my mother had purchased for herself. I was quite excited to try it out, mostly because of the gold sparkles shining through the packaging. I’ve never really used a face wash like that.

When I got to using it, I took a pea-sized amount (out of habit), and it made no lather at all. So I squeezed out some more. It did make the lather  – but a very “creamy” one that I did not really feel like putting on my face. The lather should be foamy, not creamy. Nonetheless, I applied it onto my face and washed it off. And I did not feel a difference at all, in any way. It didn’t feel fresh or cool or anything.

The face washes we use these days (Patanjali and Lakme etc.) have gotten me in the habit of feeling cool after washing my face off. This felt nothing. If you look at its ingredients, they may be all natural, but none of them have soap like cleansing properties. Aloe Vera – for all its wonderful skin care benefits – is not a cleanser.

This is where I felt this face wash from Nature’s Essence lacked. It gets used up way more than a normal face wash, and still doesn’t produce a rich lather. Since it does not clean well, it does feel like it cleaned the skin of impurities. The skin feels the same. So it becomes practically useless – lacking in literally the most basic function it needs to perform.

It does not have a fragrance, and the texture is actually like a regular face wash. But what I need after a long day at the office is too deep cleanse my skin off the impurities. I don’t really care about the fragrance or texture if it does its primary job well.

Overall Performance

I really cannot think of single positive for it. The gold sparkles look pretty – if that means anything to you.

It felt like applying a cream mixed with water – and that is not what you would like your face to feel. It felt as though clogging my pores while in the application. Neither does it clean well, nor does it make you feel fresh or clean.

Overall, I’d recommend you avoid this one from Nature’s Essence entirely. I still have more than half of the pack left and have no intentions of using it. I am less than excited for the facial kit now. Though I will give it a try, at least, independent of my views of the face wash.

Yay or Nay?

Couple Tattoo Ideas: Getting couple tattoos can be a tricky prospect. We all want something unique, yet something that is relevant to both partners. Tattoos dedicated to one another and yourself as a power couple look better if they are relatively small in size and somewhere visible. Both partners getting it in the same spot also makes it more special. Here are some cutesy ideas if you plan to get a special something with your special someone.

  1. Hearts

Before you discard it as generic, think of just how simple and cute it is. And the honest simplicity of the idea that your heart belongs to them is never out of vogue. They can be just outlines or filled in, colored or not, matching heart tattoos are beautiful to look at, and work even solo – for that matter.

  1. After all this time? Always.

You don’t even have to be a Harry Potter fan to appreciate this quote. The tragically beautiful idea behind the quote that even after a lifetime, your heart still beats for them is enough to get it with your partner. For the uninitiated, “Always” is what Severus Snape responds with when asked if he still loved Lily Potter after all these years, with her being dead and never even loving him back! *wipes tear*

  1. King and Queen

Or crowns, or both. They’re tiny, they’re cute and they speak volumes abt what your significant other means to you. It’s amazing when a guy has a tattoo that says he has someone in his life he holds as his Queen.

  1. Half hearts

Or any other similar icon that resembles you as a couple but incomplete/half on both partners which when joined completes the picture. As two halves make a one. There are so many choices there. It can either be two things which make a set or a single thing made half on each partner. These tattoos are mostly on the arm/wrist but you can be creative with that as well.

  1. Moon and stars

Space stuff that says you are each other’s moon and stars are definitely cuter than most things out there. It’s different and creative and if any of your interest is in astrology, you will like this tattoo idea even more. We see sun and moon tatts all the time, but the moon and stars – that’s unique!

  1. Yin Yang

Chinese mythology says that two completely opposite forces can merge together to form a beautiful, unique balance that makes each other even stronger. And they also make for cute couple tattoos that have significant meaning behind them. Yin is the passive force and Yang is the positive/active force.

  1. Mr and Mrs

This is like a variation of the King and Queen tattoo but for married, in love couples. Getting something like this on the ring finger is a cute little testimony of the magical years you have had together and many more to come. Works great for engaged, about to get married couples too – actually cuter that way!

  1. Forever and Always

Or any other quote, that can be dedicated to your love. Key is to keep the quote short and something exclusively about love so it is clear right away that it is for your significant other. There are so many you can find, but For ever and Always is definitely one of those evergreen ones!

  1. Any Couple you like

Fictional Couples you both admire make for cute tattoos. You get to express your love for the couple/story you love and as well as your partner in one tattoo. How cool is that? Joker and Harley Quinn tatts are famous – the personification of mad love. And there are so many other couples too – Han Leia (Star Wars), Monica Chandler (Friends) – to name a few.

  1. Same Quote both love

Any Quote you both love and resonate with, that speaks to you and your love for one another. Be sure you choose a very specific quote that reminds you of them rather than just any quote you like. The Notebook and Titanic are very preferred choices as they are the epitome of Romance for most of us.

  1. Infinity and Beyond

Tell the world that your love is for infinity and beyond and what your partner means to you. But rather than the old fashioned symbol, pepper it with some special words/symbols that make it more personal and more you.

  1. X and O

Very simple and very tiny and very cute. If you do not wish for a long/big/intricate tatt but still wish to get a memento of your love, this tattoo is for you. Even though it is pretty simple, it does not take away from the inherent cuteness it entails. Go ahead and rock the matching couple tattoos!

  1. Initials of each other's name

Full name tattoos are a huge deal, and we have seen so many celebrities get them over the years. But they are big and too on the nose. Initials of one another’s name are smaller in size, can be more stylized and look infinitely cute as symbols of each other’s presence in your life.

  1. His Hers

Nothing says “love” more articulately than getting tattooed that you are theirs, and they are yours. Commitment, being taken, and that you belong to them – all spoken and symbolized in one single, simple tattoo.

Image Credit: Pinterest

  1. I Love You

Still the best tattoo a person a can get to tell the world that they love someone more than the world. It is not archaic, not out of vogue. Instead, it is super cute and hassle free. And the sweetest expression of love. You can personalize your tatts by getting them in your partner’s handwriting.

Park Avenue Lively Deo Review

Park Avenue Lively Deo: Park Avenue has a knack of naming their fragrances right. If this deo says “lively” in its name, it sure is going to make you feel like that. Lively and fresh all day. But just freshness isn’t enough. A deo needs to be able to do more than that – a unique fragrance, a long lasting feel and good longevity – to name a few.I had recently reviewed the variant DIVA. So I got this one as a gift and was really, really excited about it. This was my first time using a Park Avenue deo, a brand I have heard quite praise for.

Park Avenue Lively Deo Review


Rs. 160 (135ml)

My Experience with Park Avenue Lively Deo

It really is the fresh-est fragrance you will ever experience. So lively – true to its name – that it just grasps your attention. So I obviously took an instant liking for it when I first used it.I thought this is going to be my favorite deo. Because what do we need when we are looking at an exhausting day at the office, and repeating that 5 times a week – something that can keep us going. Something to keep us energized!

But this deo isn’t that (sad!). Because as fresh as it felt in the beginning, that scent started to annoy me as the day went. It’s stronger than it should be. And it is pretty chemical too.The Brand claims that it settles into something ambery later on. But I didn’t feel that. If it did, it wasn’t that good I guess – because I don’t even remember the shift in the scent.On top of that, the spray of the bottle stopped working when the bottle was still half left. So I am now left with a half deo bottle with no way of using it.

Overall Performance of Park Avenue Lively Deo

It was good enough in the beginning and then it falls from grace pretty hard and fast. But maybe it’s just me. It might work for people who like strong scents. But consider yourself warned about the below average packaging.

Yay or Nay?

I think it’s going to be a Nay for me. Because there are so many body sprays out there. Good ones, exciting ones, by Park Avenue itself. So I don’t think I’m going to purchase back something I wasn’t so gung ho on to begin with.

Eva Fresh Lips Mini Lip Balm Litchi 2

Eva Fresh Lips Mini Lip Balm Litchi Review: We have so many lip balms available these days that it becomes a bit hard to choose. But it also increases our urge to try out these new exciting things that are out there. Maybe, we find our new favorite, who knows?

That what I had in mind when I tried out this lip balm. And I’m glad I did – now I can cross it off my list forever.

What is it and who is it for?

A regular moisturizing lip balm for girls.


Rs. 60 (1.2g)

Eva Fresh Lips Mini Lip Balm Litchi 2

How to Use?

Remove the cap. Apply like you would lipstick – gently over the lips in swift motions. Use as and when needed throughout the day.

My Experience with Eva Fresh Lips Mini Lip Balm Litchi


Oh I hated it. It just isn’t good. When I purchase a lip balm, what I expect from it is to keep my lips soft and moisturized, longer the better. That’s it. Nothing more than that.

I tried this one solely because my mom had bought it and I thought yes why not let’s try it. But first, it’s not at all moisturizing. Second, the color is so unnatural. Third, it doesn’t even stay.

I mean this lip balm is bad!! There is nothing to like about it. It looks like a bad lipstick when applied, no shine/glow whatsoever. The fake color it gives the lips doesn’t even look good. Although it doesn’t have a very present smell, if you sniff close enough, the fragrance is quite like Litchi.

Look, I can forgive the unnatural color and even apply it more times than I would other good balms if it does the one thing it is supposed to do – and that is to moisturize my lips in the harsh winter. But it fails there itself and then everything else doesn’t matter.

Good thing we bought a mini pack, and not a regular one.

12 Amazing Beauty Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar 11

Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar for Skin: Things that are tasty, cheap, and easily available AND offer solutions for all your beauty problems are nothing less than Godsent. We truly should be grateful for them.

12 Amazing Beauty Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar 2

Image Credit: Eat This Not That

I firmly believe that homemade, simple tricks we use in daily life for our skin are way better than expensive, chemicalized products. Apple Cider Vinegar is one of them. It has proven skin benefits, amazing skin benefits, to be precise – so much so that Apple Cider Vinegar coupled with Vitamin E is called the fountain of youth!

Read on, and you’ll be surprised at just how easy it can make a life.

  1. Foot Soak

I will start with something I have already mentioned in one of my previous posts. The Listerine Foot Soak gets even better upon adding the vinegar. It gives a bit of tingling feel and works amazingly in clearing out the bacteria while smothering your feet. That Foot Soak is literally the solution to all your foot problems.

  1. Acne

Just dab some vinegar on your pimples and let it work towards drying them out and balancing your pH level. And there you have your acne treatment.

  1. Dark Spots

Applying vinegar to them stubborn dark spots will surely lighten and gradually remove them. It works better than most remedies out there, but still, be patient.

  1. Toner

Apply it on your face, mixed in parts with water, as you would your toner. It will shrink the pores and give your face a shiny glow. The smell can be a bit much – but hey, think of all the wonderful benefits.

  1. Lotion

Whatever lotion you use, add a few drops of Apple Cider Vinegar to it, and get beautiful, smooth skin. It will enhance your lotion.

  1. Sunburn

Skin burnt by the sun is a common problem in summers. But fret not; the cooling effects of Apple Cider Vinegar are here for the rescue. Apply with fingers, cotton ball or even spray onto the affected area in good quantity for relief from the sunburn.

  1. Conditioner

Shampoo your hair, mix equal parts vinegar with water and apply on wet hair like a conditioner. Rinse after a minute or two. It not only brings shine and smoothness to hair, it also rids it off dandruff!

  1. Ingrown Hair

One of the downsides of constantly epilating body hair is the risk of ingrown hair, which we get more often than not. Apply vinegar directly on the nasty bumps and it will soothe them out, much like it works on the sunburn.

  1. Deodorant

I, for one, am tired of Deodorants which neither provides the anti-antiperspirant properties they promised nor cover up the odor.

This is, I believe, the best use of the Apple Cider Vinegar. Applying some vinegar to your underarms will completely cover up the odor. It will have its usual strong smell when you apply it and it’s still wet. But as soon as it dries, the smell will be gone, and along with it will be any sort of odor you might have. You will still sweat, but it will cover up the odor. Goodbye, deodorants!

  1. Nails

Mix equal parts vinegar with water and soak your nails in for 10 minutes. Wash off. This will heal your nails from the extreme torture of nail paints, dust, and dirt, washing, and cleaning.

  1. Teeth Whitening

It helps in achieving those pearly white teeth by simply gargling the vinegar after you brush. Yes, it is that easy.

  1. Stinky Hands

I know this one isn’t exactly a beauty hack. But I don’t see it any less than one. Our hands tend to smell after working in the kitchen – Garlic, Onion, the spices. And that is not what you want to carry to a party or Office.

Wash your hands in water after applying a tsp of vinegar on them to get rid of the stink.

What a lifesaver! How is everyone not using it in everything they do? Everyone should have a bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar in their homes at all times.
