Vitamin HB | Aspirin Acne Mask
DAILY DOSE | SKIN
By Huda Heidi Kattan
Nothing is worse than breaking out before an important event, and for some reason my skin is the mother of breakouts before important dates (my wedding, speeches, presentations, interviews, you name it, my skin digs it!). A great way to help dry out those pimples as soon as they pop up is to use an Aspirin mask. Aspirin is actually great for many skin disorders and even curing dandruff. Keep in mind it can be drying, so if your little red-friend looks like he is drying out, then try to keep it calm with chamomile or just leave it alone for a few days. I recommend using this for pimples that are new and need some drying power.
In a bowl, crush 5-10 Aspirins and add a few drops of water to make a paste. Apply mixture on affected area and let sit for 10-15 minutes before washing off. If you feel your skin tingling or burning, rinse the mixture off (this is rare, but just in case). Keep in mind this is powerful, so don’t do this more than every 5-6 days or so!
If you have an oily T-Zone this recipe is safe enough to use on the entire area, but keep it on for 5-10 minutes. Consult your dermatologist for any questions regarding the face mask.
