Acne, YUCK! Nobody wants it and yet most people will deal with acne at some point in their lives. Here is a quick aspirin mask that is working for some. With low costs and you probably have all the ingredients in your cupboard why not give it a try.
• 2 or 3 uncoated aspirins
• 1 teaspoon of water
• Optional – which hazel or aloe vera
Crush the aspirin, mix with the water until a paste forms. Add optional ingredients if desired. Apply topically to infected area with Q-tip. Leave on skin no longer than 15 minutes. Wipe off with water or wet towel as necessary.
Repeat one time per week. Avoid the eye area. Do not use if you are allergic.
If your acne does not improve with the basic mask: you can try 5 or 6 aspirin, a small amount of water and a little apple cider vinegar to form your mask. The vinegar adds an additional pore cleansing that can be very good for your skin.
Aspirin can be turned into a facial mask that you can apply to reduce or even eliminate acne. #HealthStatus
