When we think of ingredients we love to slather on our faces, vinegar isn’t exactly top of mind. But then again, the beauty world is full of surprises. Thus, we received the news of apple cider vinegar’s total takeover with curiosity, rather than shock.

Apple cider vinegar (or ACV, for short) has been serving up a slew of beauty benefits for centuries. This golden elixir contains natural AHAs that gently exfoliate dead skin cells and banish pimple-causing bacteria. Packed with potent anti-acne properties, ACV is nothing short of a godsend for blemished skin.
But don’t worry, you won’t need to douse yourself in raw, unfiltered, acidic-smelling stuff to reap the benefits. Skin Genie’s ACV skincare has got you covered! Soak it up with the easy 3-step routine below.

STEP 1: CLEANSER

For skin that wows even when it’s bare-naked, cleanse with the Apple Cider Vinegar Soap. Loaded with all-natural antiviral properties, this gentle bar clears away the debris in your pores without stripping off moisture.
TO USE: Wet the soap with water and lather it up between your hands. Once suds have formed, massage the foam into your skin using upward circular motions. Rinse with lukewarm water afterwards.

STEP 2: TONER

Once your skin is thoroughly cleansed, follow this up with the Apple Cider Vinegar Toner. This clarifying liquid refines skin texture and even lightens darks spots, thanks to its blend of ACV, witch hazel, and vodka. With continued use, you can expect a glowing face that’s more uniform in tone.
TO USE: Soak a cotton pad in the toner. Sweep it across your skin in gentle upward motions. Allow the toner to absorb until your skin no longer feels damp.

STEP 3: CREAM

Lastly, pamper your skin with the Apple Cider Vinegar Cream. This rich yet lightweight moisturizer provides deep and lasting hydration while preventing acne with anti-inflammatory properties.
TO USE: Scoop out a pea-sized amount of the cream. Dot it over your forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Using the tips of your fingers, massage it in using upward circular motions. Gently pat until the residue has fully absorbed and all you feel against your fingertips is silk.
