Facial masks with aspirin are low cost choices for inflammatory cosmetics. If you have sensitive skin on the face that is easily inflamed, just get some aspirin tablets and you are ready for a real makeover.
The power of aspirin
This drug is a painkiller agent that has the ability to lower fever.
The internal administration produces vasodilation, thins the blood and stops different inflammatory processes in the body. The same happens when you put this drug on your face – the inflammation is stopped, the skin soothed and the capillaries are strengthened. As a secondary effect aspirin has a bleaching effect and improves skin complexion. Masks with this product have consistency of fine scrub – the small particles have a peeling effect, remove dead skin cells and clean the pores, thus preventing acne. As a result, oily skin becomes smooth, clean and fresh.
Who should not use aspirin for cosmetic purposes
Firstly, those who suffer from an allergy or intolerance to this drug. Aspirin masks are contraindicated for people with vascular diseases, pregnant and nursing women. Do not use aspirin if you have fresh scratches or wounds on the face, so as not to provoke bleeding.
Aspirin Based Face Masks
Face mask with honey. Suitable for dry skin, because the honey offsets the drying effect of aspirin. Heals acne scars and removes blackheads. Crush 4 aspirin tablets into a powder, and then add the honey and stir until the mixture is the consistency of porridge. Apply on the face for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
Face mask with lemon juice. Excellent skin whitener that cleanses and refreshes the face at the same time. Grind 3 aspirin tablets and dilute with 1 tsp lemon juice. Apply for 10 minutes and wash with a solution of 4 cups water and 1 tablespoon soda.
Face mask with black clay. It helps prevent pimples and blackheads. Mix some clay with water to obtain a slurry. Mix 1 tablespoon of the slurry with 1 powdered aspirin tablet. Apply on the face and neck and wash off after 20 minutes.
Face mask with white clay. Mix white clay (you can use blue) with crushed aspirin in the ratio 4:1 and top up with water to obtain a consistency suitable for application. Leave on the skin for 15 minutes and rinse. This mask perfectly bleached and evens the skin.
Don’t use masks with aspirin more than twice a week, as the drug penetrates through the skin into the body and in large doses can cause harm to the health. It’s better to make them at night as acetylsalicylic acid increases the sensitivity of the skin to sunlight. When preparing the mask avoid using metal tools and utensils.
