Apple cider vinegar may help with body odor, but is it possible to skip a post-workout rinse and still smell like flowers? ...
As a wellness beverage, apple cider vinegar has been a hot topic for a while now. Treating element including controlling blood-sugar levels to helping with weight loss and even helping you get a good night’s sleep. I have used apple cider vinegar as a toner, or reduce ache skin marks, and to reduce body odor.
But what about Bathing in it.
By adding the pantry staple into your bath water, you soak up the benefits—literally!—without any effort whatsoever. First thing’s first: Put your prized bath bombs away for safe keeping. Next, fill up the tub and add in 1 to 2 cups of ACV, then just relax for 30 minutes or so, according to Katie Wells, founder of Wellness Mama. Once tub time is over, rinse your body and hair with a quick shower.
ACV baths can clear up skin conditions, soothe redness and inflammation (sunburns included), and get rid of pesky body odor.
And if you feel like a new person afterward, that’s totally normal; it just means it worked its magic. Apple cider vinegar is known to make your hair and skin silky-smooth, and ACV baths can clear up skin conditions (by naturally killing bacteria and fungus), soothe redness and inflammation (sunburns included), and get rid of pesky body odor. While there’s not much science to back up the ACV soak’s home-remedy rep (surprisingly few studies have been done on the topic), it does have some fans in the medical world.
My results from trialing ACV for a month is that it wasn't very effective for me.
AS A TONER: I found that this worked better on my mum's skin which is very oily and has reduced her break out and also worked on blemishes.
TO DRINK: I didn't really like the taste but it did help to introduce more water into my diet
AS ANTI PERSPARANT: I liked that it was an immediate remedy for sweating - it worked better than spray or roll on deodorants. However, for all day sweat control and odor I had to manage it with Lush Dust Powder or Mitchum Spray Deodorant.
