Aspirin mask

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Believe it or not, aspirin can be used to make a wonderful facial mask. It works as a gentle facial scrub that leaves your skin feeling nice and soft. All you need are 2 very basic ingredients: honey and uncoated aspirin ( any brand will do).

Step 1: put 3 aspirins on a plate or any small container.
Step 2: place 1 or 2 drops on each aspirin. This is just to loosen up and dissolve the aspirin pill enough for you to break it down, but not too much to the point of making them effervesce. Let it sit for 1 minute.
Step 3: with your finger tip, break down the pills so they turn into a powdery consistency.
Step 4: add 1 teaspoon of honey. Mix well.
Step 5: place it onto damp skin. leave it on for 5 minutes.
Step 6: Rinse with luke warm water. While you are rinsing, scrub your face to get rid of any dead cells.

I use this on my skin 3x a week and I have noticed a significant improve overall. My skin feels softer and it really helped acne scars fade.

-easy to make
-ingredients are very affordable and easy to find
-good for the skin

-must be careful not to add too many drops to the aspiring during step 2, otherwise, they just completely dissolve and turn into paste. If that happens, you just have to start all over again.
