DIY; Asprin mask

Bet you find that odd, dont you?

Despite the common knowledge the asprin mask has been around for a long long time! well, at least since asprin was made. Asprin contains high levels of salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid commonly used to treat comedonal or non-inflamed acne. It is a popular ingredient in many over-the-counter products. it is found in lotions and creams, cleansers, medicated treatment pads, solutions or “toners.”

it helps correct the abnormal desquamation process that occurs in acne-prone skin. It works as an exfoliant, promoting the sloughing away of dead skin cells.it is especially helpful in treating acne because of its ability to penetrate the follicle. It encourages the shedding of dead skin cells from within the follicle, helping keep the pores clear of cellular debris. In this way, it reduces the number of pore blockages and breakouts on the skin.
What you need

3 tablets of non-coated asprin.

1 tablespoon water.

1 tablespoon honey.

Method

wash your face thoroughly with a good cleanser and mild warm water. pat dry skin.

in a bowl, mix honey, water and asprin and wait three to four minutes for the tablets to dissolve.

mix this solution and apply all over face and neck, while carefully avoiding eyes and lip area.

keep this mask on for about ten to fifteen minutes, then wash with cold water and air dry skin.

apply a light moisturizer, preferably to damp skin. this way it absorbs more moisture.

look for a non-retnol moisturizer, since the high amount of salicylic acid can be harsh. you might get a tingly feeling afterwards, but dont worry its a good sign.

try this mask twice a week for oily skin and once a week for dry or normal skin. be careful not to overdo it because the skin cells might grow tolerance to it.
