Your DIY Beauty Tip:
Renée says:Thumbs up. I agree, the aspirin mask is an effective treatment.
How it works:Aspirin is an anti-inflammatory, both when taken internally and applied topically, which can help reduce redness and calm inflamed skin conditions such as acne and rosacea. It contains salicylic acid, which is an active ingredient in many acne-fighting products. Products formulated with willow bark naturally contain this skin-soothing ingredient–in fact, willow bark was the original source of aspirin, which is now synthesized in a lab. Salicylic acid also acts as a drying agent, which is can help sop up excess oil that clogs pores and leads to acne. A word to the wise: aspirin can be overly drying to skin and can make skin more sensitive to sunlight.
