Scarlett Johansson always has a glowing complexion, and it turns out she has an inexpensive skin care secret!
“A while back I started researching natural skincare,’ she explained. “It’s a nice way to treat your skin if you don’t want to use all those harsh chemicals that a dermatologist would recommend .. . If your skin is problematic or you’re having a lot of breakouts, it’s really healing. It’s a little bit stinky but if you’re not sleeping over at your boyfriend’s it’s really effective!”
She also uses lemon juice for lightening, but warns “It can be a little bit stinging, so you can dilute it with water. It’s a good trick and nice because it’s natural.”
Scarlett is onto something with the apple cider vinegar. It’s touted as a natural facial toner that helps eliminate and prevent acne, and make your pores smaller.
Apple cider vinegar is also good for your hair! Here’s how you use it:
For skin: Dilute one part apple cider vinegar in two parts water and use a cotton ball to apply over your face after you wash it at night and/or before you apply moisturizer in the morning. You can also leave it on over night to help reduce age spots or acne scars.
For hair: Put one part apple cider vinegar to one part water in a used shampoo bottle or spritzer. Several times a week rinse your hair with it after washing, and massage it into your scalp. Let the concoction sit a little while before rinsing with water. The result should be smooth, soft hair.
