Aspirin face mask - easy to make antiinflammatory mask

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 a powerful ingredient that cleanses skin and treats the the cause of acne. See how to use it to treat acne.

It is pretty cheap and almost everyone has it around the house.

Here is the recipe that I have:

Aspirin Face Mask

  • Dissolve 3-4 uncoated Aspirins in a few drops of mild water.
  • Add more water if needed until you get a mix that can be applied on the face.
  • Let it rest for 15 minutes (until it dries and undissolved pieces start to fall off).
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water using a washcloth.
Be careful so that it doesn't get into your eyes - not pleasant.

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.
