Apple Cider Vinegar For Clear Skin

Today’s recipe comes from my gorgeous friend Christina Holm-Sandok, whose creamy complexion recently began behaving badly. “Worse than during my junior year in high school!” she declares. Oi. At the suggestion of another friend with annoyingly perfect skin, Christina started drinking a raw apple cider vinegar concoction each morning. After five days she started to see improvement, and her skin just keeps getting better. Meanwhile, I can personally vouch for the fact that she does not smell like salad dressing. The theory behind this concoction is that apple cider vinegar promotes alkalinity in the body, which inhibits inflammation. And inflammation, dear readers, is the cause of pretty much everything that ails us. If you’re still skeptical about drinking the kool-aid, so to speak, I highly recommend this illuminating read. Bottoms up!

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR “COCKTAIL”
2 T. Braggs apple cider vinegar (raw/organic)
Squeeze of lemon juice
Touch of honey (optional)
12 ounces of water

Combine all ingredients. Sip throughout the day, preferably before meals, or chug the whole thing if you can’t stand the taste. It’s actually kind of growing on me.
