Aspirin mask is a classic cosmetic used by our grandmothers, mothers and aunts. Acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) acts as in the case of acidic treatment by cosmetologist and effectively helps in the fight against mild acne, blackheads and redness after breakouts. Unfortunately, it is also an invasive procedure and is not suitable for sensitive, vascular skin. Check how to make an aspirin mask.
An aspirin mask is a great way to get rid of facial imperfections. All pimples, blackheads , blackheads and acne discoloration can be compensated by using an aspirin mask regularly or by applying aspirin on the spot (also for herpes). Why exactly aspirin? All because aspirin (as well as polopyrin) contains acetylsalicylic acid , which has drying and deep cleansing properties. Treatment with an aspirin mask is compared to acid treatment in a beauty salon (of course, the action of the home mask is weaker).
Aspirin mask – for whom?
Aspirin mask is suitable in principle for all skin types, but it should be considered by people who have a sensitive , very dry and vascular complexion – people with such skin problems should very carefully choose cosmetics, because they are constantly exposed to irritation. The mask of aspirin or polopyrine works best for mixed , oily , prone to acne, problematic skin . With regular use, you can notice a marked improvement in the condition of the skin, reduce the number of blackheads, small pimples, lighten discoloration.
- Warning! An aspirin mask will help get rid of skin impurities, but this is only superficial help. If you are struggling with acne and have serious skin problems, it is better to contact your dermatologist or endocrinologist. No mask cures the causes of skin diseases.
Few people have typical oily skin. Such people usually struggle with acute form of acne , which is one of the contraindications to the use of aspirin mask . Most of the ladies and gentlemen have a classic mixed skin – fat and shining in the T zone, dry on the cheeks and eyelids. Eczema and imperfections with this type of complexion appear periodically on occasion of, for example , menstruation , changes in the weather, illness. For this skin, it is best to use a face mask – apply the aspirin from the forehead, nose, beard and other problem areas. Treatment of the entire face with acetylsalicylic acid may irritate sensitive areas.

Aspirin mask – how often to apply it?
To see the effects of treatment with an aspirin mask you have to be systematic. If you see that the mask leaves your skin in good condition, then try to apply it systematically, eg once a week. Over time, when the bumps appear only periodically, you can apply the mask only once a month or when you notice deterioration of the skin condition.
Do not overuse treatments with a mask. Aspirin dries the skin, which in the case of oily and combination skin, gives the skin a signal to produce sebum. By applying the mask every day or every few days, you can achieve the opposite effect in a short time. As in the case of professional procedures in the office, it is best to wait a few days after each mask with aspirin, but perform the treatments regularly.
