Why an aspirin mask, what are the aspirin benefits for me…or my skin?

Aspirin contains a very effective type of salicylic acid; this is the kind that gives the deep down cleansing your skin needs to get or stay blemish free. In some people it even helped to quickly heal existing blemishes and kept them from coming back

On top of that it is also a great exfoliator, sloughing off dead skin cells and so preventing your pores from getting clogged. This is what makes your skin feel silky soft and smooth afterward

Finally, all this together with its anti-inflammatory properties make aspirin a unique and world-class ingredient in your acne treatment regime

Some useful tips

Before applying any facial mask clean your face and neck with fresh water. Take off all cosmetics, creams, lotions, in short: everything. Use a non abrasive, non aggressive soap if necessary. When finished, pat your skin dry

Even better is to take a hot shower or a steam bath to clean and open up your pores. For some useful steam bath suggestions & tips check our steam bath page

When you have applied the aspirin face mask of choice make sure you take your time to lie down, place a towel under your head and neck. Put 2 cucumber slices on your eyes; or use 2 used and cooled down chamomile teabags (our personal favorite!) or 2 cotton pads soaked in rose or lavender water

Some words of Caution

A lot of fruits contain citric acid. Lemon, lime and orange (juice) in specific. When you use them in a skin treatment always be careful with how much you use. Too much can cause acid burns. Also if you have sensitive skin be extra aware with these ingredients

Same goes for all essential oils, this is really powerful stuff; be very careful what and how much you use

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin, always do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind the ear) to see how your skin reacts to separate ingredients
