I have applied it day and night (before my other topicals) and it seems to be helping with pigmentation. skin tone and texture. I really am quite surprised how nicely it's working.
Also, I read on a website that you can put a cup of cider vinegar into a bath to help you have soft skin - I did that last night. I had some ezcema patches on my arms - they virtually dissapeared overnight!
I'm not totally sure whether it's the lemon juice drink or the vinegar that's doing this, but I had a monor breakout on one of my cheeks and that has cleared up really well after a few days on this regimen.

I have been using the vinegar day and night for about 4 days now, just using it straight, not diluted... and I do see an improvement. My skin is softer than usual and feels tighter. And, this is NOT my imagination, but my red/dark marks on my skin are looking lighter... and believe me, I would notice ANY difference!

Sven and Rive - dp update after a while, it would be great to see how it works for everyone.
I have no idea if it will help fill in my indents, but the skin softness and tone is a great bonus for me.
By the way, cider vinegar is definately less stinky than the malt!

Okay guys I have used this method (sorta) before to get my acne under control and it worked, also I noticed my skin tone/scars/etc.... looked a LOT better. Only thing is I was using Lemon Juice instead of vinegar.
So... the past 3 days or so I have tried this method with white and apple cider vinegar both reduced to 5% acidity (says it on bottle, so basically I didnt dilute it) And it didnt seem to have the toning/stinging etc. propertied that the lemon juice did. It actually kinda made my face feel like it was secreting sticky oil... So my question is should I go back to using lemon juice or try yet another vinegar? and Is there any reason that vinegar would be better for your skin and work better? As I understant it they are both natural AHA's... ohh haha and 1 more question
I use a 30% glycolic peel every week - would I be safe in just not using the vinegar/lemon method on the day of my peel or should I not the day after also?
Thanks so much guys ...

franky- I use Malt vinegar that we use in cooking or to put on chips here in England. Not sure if that's the best vinegar to use or not but it HAS made a difference to my skin and my skin is not oily.
MAYA! yeah that Malt does stink.. you should have seen my husband the other night going round the house wondering why he could smell dinner

dodgy skin - I first splash my face with warm water, then I dab on the vinegar on top of that... and I leave it on (in the morning, I do this and then shower after an hour/at night I leave it on all night).
Yo - my kids keep asking me if I have been eating chips LOL!!

and i just has the best chips ever with this vinegar on it and now, it's going on my face. hahaha, oh dear wonderful life, you are full of tricks.
here's hoping that vinegar is all that tasty on the face and more.

You know, it's been around a week and my skin tone is pretty amazing - it really refines pores. I was just looking at my skin in daylight and I can definately see improvements in all pores - also, all marks have faded immensely. My shallower scars are definately more shallow.
Hard to say if it will work on my deep pits, but even if it doesn't, it's definately good for fine lines and wrinkles. This is a keeper.

Are you washing strictly with water and vinegar (morning & evening), no soap whatsoever? After you wash with it do you just leave your skin throughout the day/sleep time as is .
Is there any negative effects of this vinegar treatment... any whatsover? Could these results be temporary and once treatment stops back comes the bad skin?

weird, it only stings slightly and only in my hyperpigmentated parts. magical vinegar, cheers to you.
