Dear [NAME DELETED] I am here for you. Don’t let skin ailments cause you to let go of your dreams. And let them see you acne and all… There’s no need to be ashamed and if a man is scared off by a few pimples then perhaps he might not be the guy afterall!
If you are not allergic to aspirin, perhaps give this a try? I wrote this article for the face but try this on your back…
It all depends on what kind of acne you have (hormonal or bacterial) too.
Keep us posted – let us know how it all goes for you.
GOT ACNE? Try this Homemade DIY aspirin mask…
– 5 – 8 regular aspirins (preferably without the ‘safety’ or ‘enteric’ coating)
– Bottled water (not tap)
– 1 tablespoon of honey
If you’re allergic to aspirin – don’t use this mask!!!
Putting it together:
First, wash your face so it’s clean (don’t add moisturizer yet).
1) Get a bowl.
2) Put 5 aspirins in.
3) Add a TINY amount of room temperature bottled water, just a few drops.
4) Use a spoon to mash the aspirin, dissolve it in the water. You want the mixture to get to a paste consistency. If it’s too thick, add a bit of water. If it’s too watery, add another aspirin.
Don’t use more than 8 regular aspirins (aspirin is a drug – it may get absorbed into your bloodstream so don’t use more in your mask than you are allowed to take in a 24 hour period!!! You don’t want to overdose… If you feel any side effects at all when you use this mask stop using it immediately).
5) Add your lovely tablespoon of honey!
6) Mix it all in and apply directly to your CLEAN face.
7) Wash the mask off after it dries (10 – 15 mins) – keep your eyes and mouth shut while you do this – you don’t want aspirin getting in there!
Dry your face, tone your skin (alcohol free toner!) and apply your moisturizer.
9) Marvel at your gorgeous, soft, soothed skin!!! Aaaah
HOW THIS MASK WORKS:
TO REDUCE REDNESS & INFLAMMATION: The aspirin is an anti-inflammatory!
TO DRY OUT THE PIMPLES: Aspirin contains acetylsalicylic acid. This is very similar to salicylic acid, the active ingredient in lots of expensive anti-acne products.
ANTIBACTERIAL: The honey is a natural antibacterial so it’ll reduce breakouts if your acne is caused by bacteria (rather than hormones). Honey is also a humectant – it helps the skin retain moisture.
Depending on how sensitive your skin is… you can use this mask once a week (maybe twice).
Don’t scrub too hard with your aspirin mix because it can act as an exfoliating scrub and you don’t want to scrub your delicate pimples!
Your aspirin face mask can make your skin more sun-sensitive so after you use it, you might want to wear sunscreen.
This mask can cause skin irritation, dryness and flaking BUT the honey helps counteract this.
And, once again, if you’re allergic to aspirin – don’t use this mask!!!
