I’ve always suspected that there is more about acne than meets the eye, because no matter how many lotions I’ve used the results were always unsatisfying on the long run. Covering up the outbreak and hoping that eventually it will die out on its own volition, is of course nothing more than wishful thinking. For as long as we do nothing to deal with the underlying causes, the effects will persist and return even more aggressive.
You can only imagine my skepticism when hearing about the Aspirin Mask as a definitive remedy for acne, but the facts were pretty convincing. It makes perfect sense to use aspirin for annihilating bacteria, and since these are responsible for the acne outbreak in the first place, I thought that this treatment is worth a shot. Add to this the fact that it costs very little to create and apply such a mask, and you’ve got plenty of reasons not to dismiss the aspirin mask.
The active ingredient in aspirin is salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that does a brilliant job in cleaning out pores by killing the bacteria infesting them. These microscopic creatures are responsible for more than acne, so if you are battling pimples or persistent redness in your skin, you would probably solve the problem with this remedy.
The effects are almost immediate and unlike other homemade remedies that are hit or miss, the aspirin mask is guaranteed to work. The only thing that you need to make sure of is to have your skin clean before applying the concoction.
TIP: Make sure to sanitize your hands/fingers by washing them with anti-bacterial soap or sanitizing spray before doing this procedure.
I find this an excellent mask to use once or twice a week. It makes your skin feel as soft as a baby’s bottom and helps to clarify skin tone and texture.
Precaution:This is an informational post and don’t take this as a medical advice. Refrain from using if you have problems with blood thinning, nursing, pregnant or have a Reye’s disease. If your skin is sensitive and experience irritation, stop using this application asap.
