Here are 3 beauty benefits of ACV.

1. Facial Toner

Combine 1 tbsp of ACV with 2 cups of water then place the mixture in a reusable bottle. Apply a small amount of your homemade ACV toner all over your face using a cotton ball. This facial toner will help to boost circulation (therefore reducing the signs of aging,) minimize pores, and prevent acne.
