Aspirin Face Pack for Satin Skin

Oh Yes!

You read it right. Aspirin, Disprin (mild meds used to relieve pain) or basically any salicylic acid formulation can come handy and work wonders in giving you a glowing and clearer skin.

Salicylic acid reduces swelling, unclog pores and removes dead skin cells. It also decreases acne and speeds up healing of the existent pimples.

What to do?2013-01-16 16.26.48

  • Crush 2-3 over-the-counter uncoated tablets of salicylic acid (Aspirin or Disprin)
  • Add little water to dissolve it (don’t make a runny paste) and a teaspoon of honey, aloe vera gel or even besan (to hold the mixture together)
  • Apply a thin layer all over the face like a facepack.
  • Wash after 10-15 minutes
  • Use once a day for a week.

 

Warning !!– This should not be used by people with allergies to dairy or aspirin (salicylic acid) and those who are unsure should do a patch test behind the ear first.
