At Home Face Mask For Acne

1:17 PM

This is probably the easiest at home face mask I have ever tried.  It only has two ingredients: aspirin and Agave Nectar.  The aspirin has salicylic acid, which is great for clearing up pimples.  Like honey, agave nectar has antimicrobial properties and gets rid of bacteria.  So if you have honey on hand, you can use that instead.  This mask seemed to purge my skin.  A few hours after rinsing it off, I noticed that a few blackheads surfaced but were easily removed.

What you need:
1.) A plastic sandwhich bag
2.) Butter knife
3.) aspirin tablets (I used three baby aspirins)
4.) Wax paper
5.) a small bowl
6.) agave nectar

 Step 1:
Crush the aspirin tablets by placing them into the sandwhich bag and use the knife to crush them into a fine powder.
Step 2:
Transfer the aspirin powder to the small bowl.
Step 3:
Add the agave nectar.
Step 4:
Mix the nectar and aspirin.  I just used the blade of the butter knife, and you will have the finished product. Apply when you are ready and let sit for 10-15 minutes.

Step 5: Storage
I made enough for two or three uses.  I cover the bowl with wax paper and keep it in the sandwhich bag for 3 days.

    1. You could probably use willow bark extract in place of the aspirin as it also has the salicylic acid in it.
