Aspirin masks are ideal for those with oily and combination skin, while girls with a dry type need to be extremely careful. Before using for the first time, crush an aspirin tablet, mix with a little water and apply a small amount to the inner elbow fold. If no allergic reaction occurs after 10 minutes, feel free to use aspirin masks.
For the preparation of masks, you can take aspirin in the form of effervescent or regular tablets. Thoroughly cleanse your face with a mild gel wash and warm water before applying. Crush several aspirin tablets to a powdery state, mix with a couple of drops of water and a small amount of honey: it will give the mass the necessary viscosity and plasticity. Apply the mask to your face, and put tampons dipped in chamomile broth or tea infusion on your eyes.
Leave the mask on for about 15 minutes and rinse off. Lightly massage your face with a gentle exfoliation before rinsing. If you are allergic to honey, replace it with kefir. This variation of the mask will soothe sore skin and whiten it slightly.
