Pickles for Your Skin
Did you know that pickles are good for your skin? We’re not talking about the cucumber kind of pickles; we’re talking about the product of that pickling process, namely vinegar. With its powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, vinegar can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, from acne to athlete’s foot to poison ivy rashes. Not only can it help prevent acne outbreaks, but it can also improve the appearance of current breakouts, as well as reduce inflammation and redness.
Benefits of Drinking Pickle Juice
Everyone knows that pickles are good. But did you know they’re also great? Drinking pickle juice has a number of benefits, and here are a few of them.
Benefits of Applying Pickle Juice To Face
This isn’t just an old wives’ tale—there are actual benefits to applying pickle juice to your face. People use it to get rid of acne, clear up their complexion, and fight wrinkles. Some people even use it as a natural alternative to Botox! Pickle juice may also help tighten up loose skin.
Why Is There A Raisin in This Jar?
When you take a moment to consider that most of our bodies are made up of water, it makes sense that we’d want to keep hydrated. But as an added bonus, drinking water helps keeps skin hydrated and can even reduce wrinkles. So why not turn your favorite beverage into a hydrating one by adding a slice or two of pickle? And no, they won’t make you fat – studies have shown that sodium actually has little effect on water retention. (link here)
Other Uses For Pickle Juice
It’s good to know that pickle juice is useful in more ways than just helping you chase away a hangover. It can also provide relief from bug bites, itchy skin, and even rashes. If you don’t already have pickle juice handy (or if you’re not looking to chug brine straight from an old jar of Vlasic), you can make your own by mixing vinegar with water or salt water and storing it in a glass container for later use.
