Aspirin masks are a big hit these days among women. Aspirin contains aminosalicylic acid, which is very close to salicylic acid. This is a great stuff for skincare and many pimple healing products contain this. Lemon juice which is also a part of the aspirin mask contains citric acid which has antibacterial properties, which helps tremendously in healing pimples and evens out the complexion.

Another ingredient of the mask is honey. It soothes the skin. Also baking soda is a part of the mask, which works as an exfoliator, very gentle for the skin and makes the skin soft and supple.

·         1 big lemon
·         Baking soda
