Acne damages more than your appearance. It damages self-confidence too. Acne occurs when hair follicles are clogged by dirt, oil, and dead skin, and it can affect the face, neck chest, back, and shoulders. You’re about to discover a natural home remedy that will solve your skin problems for good.
Apple cider vinegar has several properties that fight acne. It is an astringent and a disinfectant, it is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, and it balances the body’s ph. It also contains the essential vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, carbolic acid, ketones, aldehydes, amino acids, dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, and acetic acid your body needs to function properly and prevent acne.
How Does Apple Cider Vinegar Clear Acne?
Because apple cider vinegar is anti-bacterial and antiseptic, it kills the bacteria that clog pores and cause acne.
As a natural detoxifier, apple cider vinegar rids your body of free radicals and other harmful toxins that contribute to acne.
The skin has a natural protective acid mantle—a thin layer of oil on its outer surface. Over time, face washing and cosmetics disrupt this barrier, leaving skin vulnerable to infections and other irritants. The skin’s pH, which should be 5.5, is also disrupted, but apple cider vinegar, which has a pH of 3 and alpha-hydroxy acids, alkalizes skin and balances pH levels.
Because it is anti-inflammatory, apple cider vinegar reduces redness, swelling, and pain, caused by blackheads, whiteheads, and large pimples.
The malic and lactic acids in apple cider vinegar soften and exfoliate skin, reducing red marks and scars.
Hamilton Beach Digital Simplicity: Apart from its larger capacity, the Hamilton Beach Digital Simplicity Rice Cooker has a lot in common with the Aroma. Again, there’s a steamer tray, measuring cup, and spatula, but the Hamilton Beach includes a soup ladle as well. There’s also a timer (of the same 15-hour duration). Rather than having a specific “keep warm” feature, the Hamilton Beach automatically keeps rice warm until you choose to turn it off.
Zojirushi NS-ZCC10: The Zojirushi NS-ZCC10 Rice Cooker comes with a single pot, two measures, and a rice spoon with its own holder (conveniently located on the side of the machine). There are two “keep warm” options: a shorter, 5-hour option and a longer, 12-hour option. Two different timers allow you to set the Zojirushi to make porridge for breakfast, wash the bowl, re-fill it, then have rice ready in time for supper. As an added bonus, the timer also works as a normal LCD clock. The Zojirushi NS-ZCC10’s foldable handle is a nice touch, as is the retractable power cord. It even plays a little tune when your rice is ready!
