Transcript:How to Make an Aspirin Face MaskHi! My name is Ren Allen with Faces by Ren professional makeup artistry and today I am going to show you how to make an aspirin mask that will heal and dehydrate acne. So let's get started.
Notes About Making an Aspirin Face MaskOkay so for the aspirin mask, we're going to use about 3 aspirins; if you want to cover the entire face, you will want to use up to 10. So we're just going to do this as a spot treatment today so we don't need as many.
Supplies for Making an Aspirin Face MaskMortar and pestle is really handy with this particular mask because you need to crush the aspirin into a fine powder. That's really easy to do with this, but otherwise it might be difficult to get it ground up. You could use the back of a spoon on a plate or small dish, but this gets it into a very fine powder so I highly recommend mortar and pestle. We are going to add just a smudge of honey about half a teaspoon and you can even warm the honey if you like ahead of time. I use raw honey for its mineral benefits. So just about half a teaspoon is all; not much. And then you can just add a tiny drop of mineral water, just a few drops to give that something to blend into the aspirin. It makes a nice smooth paste, not too thick, not too thin.
Applying the Aspirin Face MaskSo we're going to apply the aspirin mask. Because this one can be a little bit drippy, we're going to throw a towel on our model, and the aspirin mask is really excellent for spot treatment. But if you are very acne prone or having difficulties with acne, go ahead and do it over the entire face. It's very healing for acne and dries it right out. Our model just has a few little bumps on the nose area so I am going to concentrate it right through here. She doesn't need this all over. So we're concentrating it more in the T-zone.
So for this mask, you want to use pure aspirin; you don't want to use any other painkillers, but just a 100% pure aspirin, because this has honey and mineral water mixed into it, you want to go ahead and use this within two or three days. The great thing about an aspirin mask is that you do have the ingredients in your house most of the time. So it's easy to make up a small batch whenever you need it. So we're going to go ahead and let the aspirin mask sit, the honey is going to help hold it on and keep it from falling off her face.So to remove the aspirin mask, either splash the face with some warm water or use a warm wash cloth. Wipe warm wash cloth and just gently remove all that. It's not going to dry down completely because the honey keeps it a little bit moist.
And that's how you make an aspirin mask for home use.
