Post Why does vinegar turn pimples white?

and is this a good or bad thing? Also I've noticed that lemon juice doesn't do this.

Vinegar never made my pimples white, it just made them really red and inflamed. It does exfoliate and make your skin tone whiter, so maybe non-inflamed pimples just show up lighter on your skin.
