Aspirin Lemon Juice Mask for Acne
3-6 aspirin
1 lemon
baking soda
Coffee cup, rolling pin or glass cup (to crush the aspirin)
Shallow dish
Warm honey (runny honey), moisturizer made for the face or natural oil such as almond, olive or coconut
Preparation: Depending on the amount of coverage needed, use 3-6 aspirin. Crush the aspirin into small pieces by rolling a coffee cup, rolling pin or glass cup over them. Place aspirin in a dish. Squeeze in the fresh lemon juice (about 1 tablespoon per 3 aspirin) and allow the aspirin to dissolve into a paste. If the aspirin is coated, it may take longer. If you have dry skin, add a tablespoon or so of warm honey, moisturizer or a bit of oil (almond, olive or coconut works). Stir well. If you have oily skin, you can skip this part and add a few more drops of lemon instead. Apply as a mask or spot treat the pimple or itchy area. Allow to dry. Remove the mask with a warm, wet washcloth dipped in baking soda.
