  • Vinger Bath

     

    Hello everyone. I've been told by my mother and many other women that vinger baths are great for deep cleaning the pores. I would like to know if anyone else takes vinger baths and does it really work? Thanks.

    Do you mean vinegar baths? I've heard of this. Seen articles and posts/threads on other boards talking about using vinegar this way. I've never tried it personally though.

    puffie,

    adding a cup of apple cider vinegar to a tepid bath is good for itchy, dry skin, and helps to exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving the skin soft. smoothing a light oil onto damp skin when you get out, leaves the skin silky so that you may not need to use body oil/lotion the next day. i love vinegar baths.

    also, a great pedicure tip is to soak you feet in warm water with vinegar added. use a loofa to scrub your toes and in between as you soak. use a foot scrubber or pumice to rub off the loosened up dry, flaky skin from heels. halfway through the soaking, take a file and scrape the loosened up dead skin from the cuticles, then resoak. when finished, pat dry and smooth on a rich oil like olive, avocado, or shea butter and put socks on. your feet will love it. the soak does wonders for foot health by exfoliating dead skin, and by softening the feet and deodorizing them too.

    I have started doing them, but I add Epsom salt and essential oils with it. Two cups of each, with ten drops of lavender, rosemary, and ylang-ylang, soaking and sweating for at least 30 minutes. My skin and body feels so much better when I wake up the following morning.

    Okay I've been looking for another way to use ACV since my hair dosen't like it.

    Never thought to soak my feet in it good idea because I wear boots about 12 hours a day and my feet are taking a beating.

    I know this may sound crazy but I take ACV, cayenne, and grapefruit rind pills helps kick off my morning.

    Thanks for the tips ladies

    A vinegar bath is a good thing when your body is too acidic. This is excellent for excess uric acid in the body and especially for the joints, arthritis, sore muscles etc. My parents have added it to their diet a couple of years ago to help reduce their cholesterol. They believe that it has helped reduce not only their cholesterol but their fat. I have taken a couple of vinegar baths and noticed how clean and fresh I felt afterwards. Also before I learned what products worked for me and my loced hairs I used it as a clarifier to help clean my scalp and hair from the gunk I was using.

    Much Love and Light, keep that hair tight!

    I do vinegar baths. I started doing them when I noticed how soft my face wash after a diluted vinegar wash. I rinse my hair with it. I drink ACV in water. I clean my kitchen and floors with white vinegar. I put white vinegar and baking soda in the wash as fabric conditioner. The latest thing I've discovered is that it 'kills' that horrible armpit smell my 15 yr old son gets sometimes after sweating!
