Homemade Beauty [Part II]

I came across this mask while aimlessly searching the web one afternoon. It works amazingly for those with acne, acne scarring or black heads.

Simply take a couple of aspirin (it has to be the ones that dissolve in a glass of water), break them up into the smallest bits you can manage. Put them in the palm of your hand and make a cup with your hand. put in a tiny wee bit of water and watch it all fizz and bubble in your hands. Add enough water bit by bit until there's quite a bit of foam in your hand. Simply pat it onto your face while it's still fizzing away (i only do the areas i need it in as it's pretty harsh this mask!). Add a bit more water to the bits left in your hand and repeat the process. Leave it on for about 10-15mins until it dries and rinse off.

 I like to turn it into an exfoliant when it's time to rinse. 2 in 1 - bonus. depending on your skin you will need to moisturise after this mask - some instructions say to put some honey in with the fizzing asprin so it doesn't dry out your face. See what works best for you.

I think this is my fave mask at the moment. And it's quick and easy and it really does work!

Hello Tara,

Gosh..Thank you for this tip! I was looking for one actually. I am sick with overprice organic and non-chemical cleanser.

and, how does the mask feel? does it smell?

Hi! It doesn't smell at all which is great. It's not a nice soothing mask though so great for problem skin and best not applied to the whole face.

It tingles a bit, but I like that - makes it feel like it's getting right in there :)

Just be sure to close your mouth when rinsing it off becasue it doesn't taste very nice. (I don't like the taste of asprin anyway!)
