Aspirin face mask for acne

I tried the aspirin face mask in your recipe index. I have altered it slightly and find this one works really well for acne as well as for toning and softening.

Take 2-3 aspirin (crush using 1tsp water)
2-3 tbsp honey
1-2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp ground sage
2-3 tbsp ground oatmeal

Mix well add water to consistency of a thick paste. Leave mask on for 15-20 minute until dry then wash off with warm water.

Hi Tina,

I see you added honey to the recipe. Great anti-inflammatory agent that compliments Aspirin.

Aspirin, of course, kicks in with its main ingredient, salycilic acid, an acid strong enough to resolve inflammations and infections.

Olive oil is great as a moisturizer and oatmeal adds to moisture as well as exfoliation. Sage balances the pH of skin.

Great mask, thanks!
