It’s all natural and carries tons of skin benefits- which is why I want to share them with you and you might even find some to be super interesting or even surprising.
We use Apple Cider Vinegar in our Rosemary Toner. It is anti bacterial, anti fungal, and it’s rich in acetic acid and alpha hydroxy acid which helps improve skin texture, reduce blemishes, and unblock pores.
Thats a good enough list to sell me on it, but want to know the most interesting thing about Apple Cider Vinegar? Keep reading to find out...
Your skin is covered in a protective barrier called your acid mantle and this acid mantle sits at a PH level of between 4.2 and 6. Anything can disrupt it, such as cleansing your skin or using a facial mask. The time it takes between a disruption and when our skin naturally restores it’s protective barrier is about 1 hour.
During this time, our skin is most susceptible to bacteria and free-radicals (which can lead to breakouts and premature aging) because it's main defense is down. Unfortunately, it's also the time that we are likely applying make-up (are your brushes clean?) and touching our face the most (did you wash your hands?).
However, when you use a toner that contains Apple Cider Vinegar, you are helping your skin restore its pH level almost immediately so that your skin is no longer susceptible to free-radicals and harmful bacteria.
Now, a word of caution- I do not recommend going into your pantry to grab Apple Cider Vinegar and rubbing it all over your face. We have formulated our Rosemary Toner expertly with a rate of dilution that makes Apple Cider Vinegar skin safe and also has other supporting ingredients that enhance Apple Cider Vinegar’s benefits. So, don't wait. Head on over and grab the Rosemary Toner! Not only will it help improve your skins texture and clarity, it will also help to protect it long term.
