2. Apply a Homemade Salicylic Acid Peel to Reveal Fresh New Skin underneath

Salicylic acid is one of the most common ingredients in skincare, particularly those aimed at acne. For this peel to be most effective, before you use it cleanse your face for a couple of days with a soap-free cleanser.


5 or 6 uncoated aspirin tablets

2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp baking soda

1 cup water

1 tbsp honey or 1 tbsp aloe vera gel

To make and use:

Put the aspirin and lemon juice in a bowl. When the aspirin has dissolved add the honey or aloe vera and mix to a paste. In a second bowl, add the baking soda to1/2 to 1 cup of cold water.

To use you first need to prep your skin. Use rubbing alcohol on a cotton pad to clean your face, to remove the grease. Now apply the mix using either a gauze pad or a fan brush, keeping the mix away from the eyes and lips. Leave on for no longer than 10 minutes from the second you start applying the peel. You can expect to feel tingling and some heat. The next important step is to neutralize the acid to remove the peel. You do this with the baking soda/water mix. Dip a cotton ball in the mix and wipe gently over your face. Repeat three times. If your face feels hot or tingly, rinse with cold water until your skin is cool again. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer and apply regularly in the days following.
