At some point in our lives, we have had at least one pesky pimple that we felt insecure about. With just 2 or 3 ingredients you can clear your skin safely and effectively!

I’m a big advocate for splurging on your skin because you want the best products to do the job properly, cheaping out on your skin could make matters worse. BUT here is a big top beauty secret that many people don’t know about and it could save you a lot of money!

Here’s the secret, Aspirin and Honey Masks! Both ingredients are safe and effective. Now you may ask why Aspirin and Honey? Well Aspirin is an anti-inflammatory and will help bring down the redness of your breakout. Aspirin also has the same compound as Salicylic Acid and helps with exfoliation topically. Honey is a natural anti-bacterial, its also helps heal your skin and also both lock in and draw in moisture. Honey is a natural humectant. Together it creates the most simple yet effective face mask!

What you will need is:

  • crush about 5 Aspirin tablets.
  • add 1 tsp of organic honey.
  • Add enough water to make a paste.

Mix these into a bowl and apply it to your face. Leave on for around 10-25 mins. It is a messy process, so make sure you got time to sit or lay down and relax. Rinse off with warm water and pat skin dry. You will notice that your skin is visibly smother and it’ll have that fresh clean skin glow. If you don’t need a full face mask, you can use the same ingredients in smaller portions for spot treating as well!
