Wow, that sounds like trouble in the making...
Spot on! Thanks so much for ur reply and the tipI know how to do it but I am not sure if it will remove blackheads. It does seem to have a tightening effect. Aspirin is an anti-inflamatory, so it may reduce the swelling and redness of active acne.
You take about 5 aspirin tablets (not gel tablets) and soak them in about 1/2 teaspoon of water. When soft, mash them with the back end of a spoon. Add a touch and I mean touch more water if needed. You can add a DASH of real lemon juice instead - especially if you suffer from hyper-pigmentation. The lemon juice lightens discoloration. Wait for a fine powdered liquid consistency. Spread onto face and let dry for 10 minutes before rinsing off with luke warm water. Follow with oil-free moisturizer or oil-free sunscreen if you used lemon juice as it will increase sensitivity to sunlight.
Hi Freddy,Pumi, did you end up using the mask? How did you like it?
Nice to see you back, PumiHi Freddy,
sorry for late reply as I was away on holidays. I haven't made the mask. Thanks for reminding me as I completely forgot about the aspirin tablets which I bought a longtime ago!
will keep u updated.
Thanks, Dragonlilly. is this ur new pic? u look gorgeous as alwaysNice to see you back, Pumi
Hmmm... I'd be willing to try it myself and see what happens.It is not scary at all and very safe. Aspirin is acitylsalicylic acid wich was first extraced from the willow tree. It the same stuff that is used in salicylic peels for exfoliation. The peel would be easier to make if you buy the ingredients from places like bulkactives.com or skinactives.com. In other words easier to determen the consentration of the acid. It is very good for purifying clogged pores.
YupThe aspirin mask is not good for blackheads then?? Too bad but at least you know you have tried it, Pumi
