What is Copper Jewelry telling me when my skin turns green?
Copper reacts naturally with our salty skin, which can be created whenever we sweat, be aware when you might be working out or in the sun. But copper can also react to acidic environments- your acidity is related to your diet. Junk food, processed food, and lots of red meat will make your body acidic. Also, the more acidic your diet and body, the more likely you are to get sick. Wearing copper jewelry can work as a terrific way to gauge whether you need to change your diet or if you’re just on the cusp of coming down with something- so amp up your vitamins.
To clean your copper, fill a small glass or plastic (don't use metal) cup with white vinegar and salt, place your copper jewelry into the glass of vinegar making sure the vinegar covers the jewelry. After several minutes remove from the cup, rinse with cold water, dry with a soft cloth. To add extra shine buff with a brass bristle brush or polishing cloth.
