A derivative of salicylic acid – which is a bit of a miracle worker on congested pores and oily complexions – an aspirin face masque will exfoliate the skin, unblock pores and neutralise bacteria. In short, softer skin with a smoother texture and less blemishes.
And precisely because it is that powerful, you should definitely go easy: no more than once a week (even less if your skin is very sensitive as it can dry the skin out if used too often).
And Crunchy Betty gives not only her own version of the aspirin masque, but a recipe for an apple cider vinegar toner to follow the masque with. So there: aspirin is not only for headaches, it also keeps your skin looking beautiful. Who knew?
