Apple Cider Vinegar For Pigmentation Problems  -  Just An Old Wives Tale?

The benefits and healing properties of vinegar have been used for thousands of years. As far back as 400 BC, the Greek physician Hippocrates documented the uses of vinegar as being beneficial to the body. In more recent times, apple cider vinegar has been touted as the new miracle "cure all" for almost every bodily ailment. So is it true? Is it possible that you can use the simple home remedy of apple cider vinegar for pigmentation issues?

Vinegar can be made from a wide range of fruits and vegetables, but the process is roughly the same. Vinegar is produced by fermentation, during the first stage the sugar from the mashed apples turns into alcohol, it's then left to ferment even further until you get vinegar. There are many different brands available, but "Braggs" apple cider vinegar has gained the reputation of being one of the best.

So how can apple cider vinegar help with hyperpigmentation?

All vinegars, including apple cider vinegar, contain acetic acid, along with lots of vitamins, different mineral salts, and amino acids. All of these things, in the right amounts, can be very good for promoting health. Apple cider vinegar also contains sulfur, which research has discovered is the reason for it's success in treating age spots and hyperpigmentation.

To treat cases of hyperpigmentation, the best method is to apply apple cider vinegar directly to the affected area with cotton wool or a cotton pad twice daily. The effect apple cider vinegar has on pigmentation problems has been noted to work best when drunk as a tonic as well as applying it to the face. Some people who have tried this remedy, have also suggested that adding onion juice to the apple cider vinegar when applying it to the skin, can also help with treating hyperpigmentation. Along with the positive effects on hyperpigmentation, apple cider vinegar is also a great skin toner, and can be used to treat acne and oily skin, with many people reporting softer skin and a decrease in the size of their pores.

To prepare apple cider vinegar as a tonic, mix two teaspoons into half a glass of warm water. Some may find the taste of apple cider vinegar too bitter, so mixing in a little sugar or honey can improve the taste. The home remedy market has boomed in recent years, and apple cider vinegar is available in various supplement forms if the taste is too much for your taste buds.

There are many different hyperpigmentation home remedies, along with natural creams and treatments. I believe that nature has provided us with a different cure for all our ailments, so I would try natures way before subjecting your face to the more invasive (and expensive) options of laser therapy or chemical peels that remove your skin.
