In this article we will teach you to prepare a homemade peeling for the face composed only of aspirins and natural products. Use it if you have spots on the skin that you want to clarify, if you have acne or if you want to diminish the scar mark.Aspirin contains an ingredient known as beta-hydroxyacid, a salicylic acid whose main function is to cleanse and exfoliate the skin since it softens the keratin of the stratum corneum and helps to accelerate its desquamation.

– One tablespoon of natural yogurt


1. Pour five aspirins, two tablespoons of honey and a spoonful of plain yogurt into a blender.

In addition, if your skin is very sensitive, we recommend that before applying the mask try putting a little of it on some sector of your skin to see if it causes any adverse reaction.

On the other hand, do not forget to use sunscreen the day after applying the mask since the skin will be very sensitive after the peeling.

While this treatment is actually effective for the appearance of the skin. It is very important that you wait fifteen days before doing it again.
