Homemade Skin Care Recipe: Anti-redness treatment

submitted by anonymous, HANOVER, MA usa

Tip description / details:
When my skin feels inflamed (from sun or wind exposure) I dissolve an aspirin in water, or witch hazel, and apply it on my face with a sprayer or cottonball. The aspirin is both anti-inflamatory and is a betahydroxy acid (which is an effective antiwrinkle treatment). Note - if you don't fully dissolve the tablet in water it will be too grainy and will scratch your face.

1 tablet of aspirin (generic, not enteric covered); 1-2 oz. of water; cotton ball or spray bottle.

How to prepare:
stir aspirin in 1-2 oz water (make sure tablet is completely dissolved.)

How to use:
smooth onto skin (or spray if using bottle)

Results (observed by submitter):
It calmed my skin after drying.

Costs involved:
<5 cents
