Body & Soul: 7 Vinegar Beauty Tips

| October/November 2010

Try these quick and easy ways to use herbal vinegars to keep your skin and hair looking and feeling clean and fresh.

Relieve dry skin: Pour 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal and 1 cup vinegar into a warm bath for a refreshing and soothing soak.

Enhance your body wash: Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to 1 cup of your favorite liquid soap or cleanser. The vinegar will make your skin silky soft.   

Clean hands: Wash your hands with vinegar to soften them. This is especially helpful after working in the garden to remove dirt and stains. 

Deodorize: Vinegar is a natural deodorizer. Simply splash some herbal or white vinegar under your arms and allow to dry. 

Freshen your breath: A vinegar-salt water rinse is especially helpful for ridding your breath of onions or garlic. Mix 2 tablespoons vinegar, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 cup water to make an effective mouth rinse.
