>Asprin Face Mask

“I’ve been concocting face masks at home from random things I find in the fridge for years.  Throw a little oatmeal and honey together and voila, you have a sticky treat for your face that’s also good to eat.  Moving forward from such edible delights into more practical at home mixes happened a few years ago when my skin actually started requiring more maintenance than a splash a water here and there.

And this is where the aspirin face mask comes in.  Never heard of this?  It’s easy to make and leaves your skin looking surprisingly cheery and smooth.  Why?  Because the aspirin acts as an anti-inflammatory, calming whatever it is that ails you.  Also important to note is that aspirin contains acetyl-salicylic acid, which is widely used in cosmetics because it removes dead skin cells without clogging pores (e-How.com told me that little fun fact).

Here’s what to do…
