Homemade Skin Care Recipe: Baking Soda, aspirin and toothbrush for acne prone oily skin

submitted by Chasity Mullins, wise, VA USA

Tip description / details:
I use baking soda mixed with water (or sometimes mixed with my facial cleanser by Avene called Diacneal -- it is soap free and I LOVE it) as a scrub for my face and apply it with a soft double-headed spin electric toothbrush (being careful not to press hard). I have very oily skin, prone to acne, sun damage and some mild scaring. I had read on website, doctors use baking soda for scar revision, so I thought I would give it a try. I also use asprin as an exfoliator and as a nighttime mask (leaving it on all night). Both work great for me. My skin is so much better, blackheads are mostly gone especially on my chin they are all gone and hardly any acne breakouts. I do this maybe once every week or two. Moisturize afterwards.
