Is Vinegar Bad For Your Skin
So I've heard that listerine plus vinegar plus warm water on feet for 10 minutes can make dead skin off, but is there a bad thing that it could maybe do?
Not really: I did a search on web and didn't really find any testimonials as to the success of this mixture other than statements of it feeling good. I believe that it may vary from person to person, the source of the dead skin and the duration. If in doubt, I would check with a dr. Or a holistic practitioner. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: I'm assuming you want to use it on your face. The acid in the vinegar will strip your skin of natural oil. I would recommend consulting with a dermatologist locally for some recommendations. Read more

Give it time: The acid of vinegar--acetic acid--probably caused some minor burns and discoloration. There isn't much you can do but wait for the skin to heal. Minimize/avoid exposure to sun as intense sun exposure can make the discoloration worse. Obviously make-up cover gives instant change, but otherwise it may take several weeks to months to normalize, depending on how severe it is. Consult doc. Good luck. Read more
I had a pimple and I put white vinegar on it. It went away but it left behind a white puffiness. Now a few days later it has turned into brown flat skin. What can I put on this to go away? How long will it take to go away?
Depends on skin type:
You have caused a mild acid burn or "frosting", thus the white puffiness by using vinegar (acetic acid). The end result is a dark spot (hyperpigmentation).
How soon it fades will depend on your skin type (i-vi), sun exposure and how dark the spot is. Often takes a few months. Otc bleaching creams may be of some value. Read more
I saw a treatment that by applying apple vinegar it could help my skin so I did it but I burned my skin and it feels normal but its still red help.
Acetic Acid reaction:
Vinegar contains about 5% acetic acid which can cause irritation and even skin burns depending on how concentrated the solution is. You may be having a mild chemical burn or a reaction to another component of the vinegar.
If the skin is not peeling and there is no pain, itching or swelling will likely resolve on its own. If it persists or gets worse I'd recommend calling your doctor Read more
