Scarlett Johansson Vinegar Cleanser

27th August 2013

Being one of the biggest names in Hollywood, The Avengers actress Scarlett Johannson recently revealed one of her more intriguing beauty secrets with the public, apple vinegar cleanser.

Apple Vinegar Cleanser

Yes, you heard right, this skin treatment from your very own kitchen pantry is rumoured to bring great results in skin toning. The recipe is incredibly straight forward and includes half a cup of distilled water, half a cup of apple cider vinegar and a little drop of lavender extract to reduce the pungent smell.

But What about the Side Effects?

As with any home made remedy it's always a good idea to be extra careful to avoid experiencing any serious side effects. Vinegar toner, even apple based has a particularly strong odour and so in the hot weather the toner may linger on your skin for a while. This could be even more embarrassing during perspiration especially if you want to avoid smelling like a chip shop.

Stinging and Dryness?

Unfortunately, with these home remedies you never really know just how sensitive your skin might be. Even a diluted toner can actually remove too much natural oil leaving your skin sore and feeling tight. Not only can this cause discomfort, but tight skin actually diminishes the skin's ability to resist wrinkling and therefore can have a detrimental impact on your skin's ageing process.

So, What Do We Recommend?

As much as these home remedies can save time and money, if you're looking for a much more permanent and safer solution for oily skin then look no further. We offer a great range of skin peels and we make sure we test your skin prior to ensure we've found the best match for you.
