Pampering Sunday:

Aspirin Masks

Got those at home?

If you have black heads and don’t know what to do to get rid of them, I have the solution: make an aspirin mask! They are the best thing to banish black heads!

Aspirin contains a lot of salicylic acid, the main ingredient in anti-black head treatments. Salicylic acid is a natural deep-cleanser that gets into your pores and stops oil and dirt from building up and eventually transforming into a black head. If you have skin problems, you probably already own a cleanser, toner or lotion with salicylic acid. I use them too, but I find that the simple aspirin masks work better. I have begun to use them on my nose, and it has significantly decreased the number of blackheads. If you are interested with this mask, here is the recipe.

You will need:

  • some aspirin, in powder form (for my nose only I normally use one little foil package. For the whole face, I use two.)
  • a little bit of water (be careful, you will need a tiny amount, otherwise your mask will be too liquid.)

That’s all! Just mix the two ingredients and apply the mask whenever you need it! After a few minutes (I generally wait for it to dry), rinse it off and apply some lotion to re-moisturize your skin. Because this mask can be drying, don’t use it more than twice a week.

Do you have any great tip to get rid of blackheads? Please, to tell!
