There are a few variations on the Aspirin face mask theme, all of them revolving around the mighty Aspirin for a base.
Aspirin has been around for a hundred and so years, and just recently resumed full function in "do it yourself skincare."
Basic function of it is being an analgesic and antipyretic, but more importantly, as far as skin care, it is its anti-inflammatory power. This is important when it comes to treatment of acne and other inflammation processes on the skin.
It contains Salicylic Acid AKA Beta Hydroxy Acid, widely used in cosmetics as it is able to slough off skin cells thus preventing the clogging of pores. Benefits of salicylic acid for skin are that it removes the top layer of the skin and reduces the discoloration of the skin, is why it is often used as a homemade skin bleach.
It is pretty cheap and almost everyone has it around the house.
Here is the recipe that I have:
Aspirin Face Mask
This mask is recomended for all skin types, although it shows best effects on oily skin and skin prone to acne, zits and blackheads. Apply this mask no more than twice a month.
