Aspirin as a face mask? How budget pain killers can be used as a DIY cure for blemishes and scaly skin

Aspirin is more typically used to cure headaches, but it apparently works wonders on acne too.


Aspirin is a form of salicylic acid, proven to 'reduce swelling', 'unclog pores' and 'soften thick, scaly skin'. All you have to do is to crushe five tablets and combine the powder with a tablespoon of plain full-fat yogurt and honey, to create a 'soothing and moisturizing' face mask.

Note that the concoction should not be used by people with allergies to dairy or aspirin - those who are unsure should do a patch test behind the ear first. Also if salicylic acid is used too often or improperly, it can cause the skin to thin and become dry.

How to do it:

Leaves aspirin face mask on for ten to 20 minutes. Once it has dried use a warm, damp washcloth to remove it.




You will have smooth and soft skin afterwards.

For those with dry skin, add more honey, and for those with oily skin, the amount of yogurt should be increased.


On acne.org, out of 639 visitors, 86per cent recommend it as an effective treatment. So it's definitely worth trying. I use this mask only during winter cos during the summer it might cause skin discoloration. 

Let me know if ya tried it.
