Apple Cider Vinegar Baths are a Great Treatment for Eczema
If you’re looking for a natural and effective way to treat eczema, look no further than apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar has many wonderful benefits. Vinegar’s of all kinds, but particularly apple cider vinegar also known as ACV, can be used as a natural eczema treatment. Vinegar consists mainly of acetic acid and in addition to being used for cooking; it’s also used for health, medical, and beauty. Many people find that apple cider vinegar added to a warm bath has benefits for the skin. It can be used for eczema relief, to treat outbreaks, and to prevent eczema flares.
Vinegar is antibacterial and anti-fungal and contains all kinds of immune-boosting mineral salts, vitamin B1, riboflavin, an array of vitamins, sulphur, and acetic acid. It’s all around alkalizing for the body and for the skin. The result is that vinegar is wonderful to relieve inflammation, skin infections, and to combat yeast growth. The natural astringent quality of the vinegar helps to balance the skin’s pH levels.
Apple Cider Vinegar Bath Directions:
- Mix 2 cups of ACV into a warm bath if using a tub. Use 4 tsp. per gallon if using a baby tub.
- Soak in the bath for 30+ minutes. Toys help a child soak.
- Gently pat the skin dry with a soft, cotton towel. Leave the skin slightly moist.
- Moisturize immediately while the skin is still damp with an eczema emollient.
- After applying an eczema moisturizer, apply eczema clothing to reduce itching and allow emollients to stay in place for optimum treatment.
- Repeat 3-4 times a week for best results.
Apple Cider Vinegar “Skin Toner”
You can also spot treat your eczema by creating a skin toner-type of liquid to keep in a jar in your bathroom:
- Mix 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar with 1/2 cup of water. For particularly sensitive skin, you can start with just 2 tbsp. of ACV in 1 cup of water.
- Use a cotton ball to apply the ACV to the affected area(s) as a skin toner.
- Repeat 1-2 times a day.
On its own, vinegar can be very drying so always moisturize immediately after your bath or after using the skin toner.
It’s important to always dilute the ACV before applying it to the skin. It’s too strong to apply directly and might cause some stinging or burning if it’s not diluted enough. If you find that your skin reacts to the ACV, add more water.
So many people experience dramatic improvements to their eczema from treatment with apple cider vinegar. The naturalacetic acid and the antibacterial and antifungal qualities of vinegar help to relieve eczema flares and ward off future outbreaks. When diluted, it’s very gentle and a terrific natural eczema remedy that’s worth trying for both adults and children. We hope it works for you too!
