Of course Mr Jones thinks I'm absolutely bonkers, sitting there with greek yogurt & aspirin on my face but there is actually some science behind why this works as a facial treatment. One of the main ingredients in aspirin salicylic acid, which is often used in skin care products for the treatment of acne!
Top that with the fact that this costs next nothing to make...... who's laughing now!!
To make mine, I used:
- 2 dispersible aspirin tablets
- 2 teaspoon of water
- 2 teaspoons of Greek yogurt
Place the two aspirin tablets in a bowl and add the water. Once the tablets have disintegrated in the water ( you can help them along by mashing them with a spoon if you like) mix in the yogurt. Et Voila! you have your face mask!
Apply to your skin, sip a glass of wine and relax....
Wash it off after about 10-15mins and you should have lovely glowy skin. By the next morning, any pesky spots I have also seem a bit less angry, result!
You can also make the mask with honey instead of yogurt, I tried this but found it just ended up running down my face. I have used Greek yogurt before to treat sunburn and skin irritations and found this really soothing, so think I will stick to this in future.
Has anyone else tried this, or do you have your own bonkers DIY treatments?
