“I actually learnt this tip from my dermatologist, who told me that many women cured their acne by making an apple cider vinegar toner. The acidity in apple cider vinegar is great at breaking down all that gunk built up in our pores. All you need to do is to fill half a jar with water and the other half with apple cider vinegar. This is optional, but I also love adding lemon to my toner as it has many skin-enriching benefits. Shake up the mixture and there you have it!” - Chriselle Lim, Korean fashion and beauty expert
