    Be careful...if it's too highly concentrated it can literally burn your skin. I had a pimple that would not go away so I applied ACV with a q-tip a few times at night. It burned my skin and then a scab covered the burn. When that finally fell off I had a large white spot on my face for a good 2 or 3 months. My skin has evened out now, but I was really self conscious about it.

    I was thinking of adding to a few drops into a spray bottle... and consuming it with water

    I used to use it, mixed 1-1 with water, as a toner because I heard it evened skin tone. It stung a little (I have VERY sensitive skin), but never burned my skin (by that I mean, it never left a mark, the way that other products literally burn me), maybe because I didn't use a very strong concentration. I can't remember why I stopped. I think I got tired of smelling like a pickle :)

    Oh okay. I think I got a little over-zealous by applying straight to my skin lol. Funny when I think about it now, but not so funny then. I actually add it to my juice in the morning and drink it. It's supposed to be very good for your overall health including hair and skin.

    My DH mixed a couple of tablespoons with water and a little honey and drinks it to prevent acid reflux. He also takes prescription meds, but the ACV seems to help when nothing else can.

    I've used it directly on my skin to dry up some poison ivy before.
