How many times have you noticed a blemish coming on and not had any treatments on hand? And if you do have those fancy spot treatments, why are you spending so much money on them?! We have a very simple, very effective at home solution to fix you blemish woes and get you flawless skin in no time.
All you will need for this DIY miracle treatment are some on-hand household items:
- 3 aspirin
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. warm honey (optional)
- 2-3 tbsp. baking soda
Mash and grind up the aspirin into a near powder using a rolling pin or the bottom of a coffee mug. Add powder to small dish and mix in lemon juice until a paste forms. If you have dry skin, add the option warm honey for additional moisture (Note: if you have oily or sensitive skin, skip the honey). On clean skin, apply a thin layer of the mixture to affected areas. Leave on for 10-15 minutes, or until dry. Wipe off with a washcloth dipped in warm water and baking soda. Splash face with cold water once all treatment is removed.
Why is this treatment so effective? Aspirin is an anti-inflammatory and contains the well-known blemish fighter salicylic acid, which makes for a pimple fighting powerhouse. Lemon juice contains concentrated citric acid, an anti-bacterial ingredient which helps to heal acne and even out skin tone. The honey helps to soothe itchy and dry skin and plumps skin with organic and natural moisture. As for the removal, warm water helps to open up pores and the baking soda is a great exfoliator, which will leave your skin smooth and soft. Once all is said and done, the splash of cold water will snap pores back shut!
