Aspirin Acne Mask

3-4 uncoated Aspirin tablets 
Water for oily skin or Jojoba oil for normal/dry skin

Place hot water in a large glass bowl. Take 1 tsp of honey and 1/2 tsp of water or jojoba oil and put it in a smaller bowl in the hot water so that it softens. Crush three to four uncoated aspirin tablets using a mortar and pestle or fork. Remove the bowl of honey mixture from hot water and add crushed aspirin, mixing together with fork. If the consistency is still too thick, add a tiny more oil or water. It won't be the usual thick mask that you're probably used to and that's okay, it will still do the job. Test the temperature of the mask and apply over the pimples, avoid near your eyes. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes and remove with warm water, making sure all traces are gone and pat dry. If you feel your skin tingling or burning, rinse the mixture off (this is rare). Only use every 5-6 days.

Where and When Not to Use:
- If you're allergic to any of the mask ingredients or salicylic acid, if you're pregnant, breastfeeding or have any medical condition that has you avoid aspirin. 
- An area that has been waxed or had a salicylic acid, glycolic or an enzyme product applied in the last four days. 
- Irritated, inflamed, cut, or sunburned skin.
