DIY Facial Treatment

WOAH!  Somebody stop me.  I wanna be beautiful.  I wanna be gorgeous!  I don't want it to be hard or expensive...  I am on a whirlwind tour of DIY beauty treatments.

This facial treatment that I tried is prepared as follows:

Dissolve 5 aspirin in just enough distilled water to turn it into mush.  You may have to crush the pills a bit.  Then add 1 teaspoon of honey!  And VOILA, you have a facial cleansing mask.  Apply and leave on for 7-15 minutes.  WARNING: not for use if you have any allergy or adverse reaction to aspirin.

I was happy with the results in just one use of this one as well.  Mine had a bit too much water.  However, the honey makes it adhere nicely too the face.  The aspirin not only acts as a scrub, but contains the same active ingredient of most topical acne creams.  My face had that SUPER CLEAN feeling when I used this, and retained the feeling for a long time.  I will definitely try this one again for cleansing and acne fighting.
