Skin disorders affecting the face or the skin on the arms, fingers or throughout the entire body, can be very upsetting, they can lower one’s self-esteem and in extreme cases, they can cause depression.

The major skin problem is acne, which is a long-term skin disorder, characterized by oily skin, pimples, whiteheads or blackheads, and sometimes even scarring.

Eczema is another skin disorder, in which the skin becomes red, swollen and inflamed. It is an acute condition, triggered by environmental factors, but can also bring discomfort to the person suffering.

There are many commercial cosmetic products, promising healthy skin without acne, but they are often very expensive, and often ineffective.

You can make your own dermal tonic with healing properties with aspirin. Aspirin provides anti-inflammatory properties, so it can be effective in reducing the inflammation of the skin, it will clean the clogged skin pores, providing further protection from acne formation.

It will also clean the dead skin cells from the skin and will reduce the swelling.

  • ½ teaspoon coconut oil (optional)

In a small container, crush the aspirins and add the water to form a paste, then add the coconut oil and mix well. Apply this mask on clean skin and make sure to avoid the eye area. Leave it for 20 minutes and wash with warm water. For best results use this face pack at least twice a week.
