Aspirin Mask Does Magic

22 Aug

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.

    It works on small pimples,those are completely gone, but for my larger ones they are still there and are as red as ever. I don’t have acne or anything. Like I have a really clear complexion. Just two pimples that some how landed on my face and won’t pay for rent! :(

      For redness, some people have had good results using eye drops with a redness reducer on a Q-tip or an ice cube held on the pimple for a few seconds (the ice cube may also stop some of the swelling).
