The Benefits

Due to its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, apple cider vinegar is often used as a natural cleaning solution for the home. And for the feet, the benefits may be no different. While you sleep, the acidity of the vinegar is meant to work to soften the skin on the feet that’s been hardened by wearing tight shoes, walking on certain surfaces, or even having underlying health issues.

The Side Effects Of Applying ACV Directly On Your Skin

You should never apply apple cider vinegar directly to your skin because apple cider vinegar contains high amounts of acid. This acid can remove healthy bacteria from the skin, shrink your skin cells and tighten your skin. Always make sure to dilute your apple cider vinegar in water before applying it to your skin to prevent side effects.
