DIY Mask Leaves your Skin Feeling Baby Smooth
You don’t have to go to a spa to clear up spotty, uneven skin. Just look in your bathroom cabinet for a bottle of asprin, and whip up a non-irritating aspirin mask. With the same acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) found in many exfoliants and acne creams, aspirin can help calm your skin leaving it smooth and soft.
Whether your skin type is normal to oily or acne prone, you can use this mask for clean, fresh skin. For very oily skin and severe blemishes, use once or twice a week. Other skin types can apply the mask once a week or twice a month if you have dry or sensitive skin.
How do you make the aspirin mask?
Crush four to six ASA tablets using a mortar and pestle or spoon. Add enough drops of water to form a paste. Smooth it over your skin, and keep it on until completely dry (approximately 10 minutes). Rinse with plenty of water and follow with a light moisturizer.
Tips: Do not apply the mask near the eye zone or overuse as it can be drying.
