Hubby and I have been taking apple cider vinegar (ACV) drink every morning for 2 months now, and at first, I didn’t notice any changes to my body.
But last weekend, I took a week off from drinking this drink and had substituted it with my collagen drink, and what do you know.. I caught a cold from my colleague 2 days later!
I didn’t go and see the doctor even though my cold was quite bad and I had a fever as well, and ALL I wanted to do was crawl into bed! What I did was I stopped drinking the collagen drink, and started drinking my ACV drink in the morning, with double dosage! I did this for 2 days, and my cold was totally gone on the third day!
Amazing, I tell you!
I used to catch the cold from my other family member or my colleagues around once a month, but ever since I started taking this ACV drink, I didn’t fall sick once! (Knock on wood!) Therefore, I have made up my mind (and told the hubby as well) that he and I will continue to drink this daily for our health. Just Google the benefits of drinking ACV + Honey guys.. it will blow your mind!
Hubby just hates the smell, but hey, like I always reminded him, prevention is better than cure, right?
So to those of you who tend to fall sick with the cold or flu, you might want to try drinking ACV + Honey drink every morning. Just 1 Tbsp of each and fill the rest of your glass with water, and you drink it in the morning before you eat your breakfast (or in our case, before we leave for work). Easy peasy!
P/s 1: Maybe I should drink the collagen drink in the evening instead eh? It will be a waste to just leave it and not drink it, after spending all that money on it..
P/s 2: I also use ACV as a toner for my face, and my monthly zits (you know.. during THAT time of the month) totally cleared up. I also sometimes use ACV as a hair conditioner!

Right.. let’s get down to business, shall we?
For this week’s Thursday Tips, I have chosen these:
1) DIY Makeup Remover
- 1/2 cup water
- scant tablespoon baby shampoo
- 1/4 tsp olive oil
Mix them all together, then store them in a container of your choice. That’s it!
Boy, that was hard to do, right? Hehe.
Right before you use, you just give it a little shake to get the 3 ingredients mixed together.
I’ve been using this product for a week now, and how I wish I have tried this product sooner! My eyes gets super itchy and stings right after I removed my makeup using my commercial makeup remover (trust me, I’ve tried a lot of them out there), but when I used this DIY remover, my eyes didn’t hurt at all.
2) Cucumber Eye Mask Recipe (for tired & puffy eyes, dark circles)
- Blend cucumber with water.
- Soak cotton pads.
- Put them on a ziplock bag. Freeze.
- To use, take out 2 frozen pads, thaw for about 10 minutes (or however long your shower takes), then put them on for about 10-15 minutes.
I LOVE this recipe! I’ve been buying so many of different types of eye mask for my puffy eyes, and some of them are not cheap, and don’t get me started on whether they work or not!
But this DIY recipe right here, they definitely do. Cucumber contains antioxidants and flavonoids that decrease irritation naturally, what more could you ask for?
