Check below some aspirin face mask combinations that are of great help and will come in handy to cleanse your clogged pores and reduce your acne.
1. Aspirin and Water
Take a couple of aspirin tablets and crush them in a mortar and pestle to make a fine powder.
Add few teaspoons of water to the powder and mix the two ingredients together to make a smooth and thick paste.
Use a Q-tip to apply this paste on your pimples and spread it evenly so that a whole pimple is covered. You can use your fingers as well.
Leave the paste as it is for about 15 minutes until it dries up completely and makes a thin layer.
Wash off the paste using lukewarm water and a damp cloth. Pat the skin dry with a clean new towel.
Repeat this remedy two to three times in a week to get rid of stubborn pimples in about a week.
Aspirin and water seem like a very easy remedy to treat pimples but it actually is harmful to the skin if used too much. Aspirin is a blood thinner and applying it on the skin allows it to get absorbed in the bloodstream so use it judicially.
