Aspirin Face Mask-brown post-acne marks

Masks that contain aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) can take the heat out of an inflamed spot and help gently exfoliate dead cells without irritating healthy cells. If you use this mask on a regular basis it can help reduce brown post-acne marks (apply at night once a week).

 

How to prepare:

Mix a tablespoon of natural plain yoghurt with 1/5 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and two crushed aspirin, and add two drops from a capsule of vitamin E and two drops from a capsule of vitamin A. Apply the paste to problem areas, including brown post-acne marks. Leave on for 20 minutes then rinse off with warm water.

 

Pat your skin dry very gently, then apply the contents of a vitamin E oil capsule to the areas you treated with the mask. If you find your skin becoming a little red or flaky, apply more vitamin E oil.

IMPORTANT ! Please insure you do a patch test before you fully apply this to your face.

Apply SPF on daily basis.
