INGREDIENTS: Aspirin and honey

GOOD FOR: Reducing irritation and inflammation from acne

Method: Using a cotton pad,  smooth toner over your skin to open your pores. In a bowl, crush an aspirin and a splash of toner and mix into a thick paste. Apply the paste to acne spots and leave for five minutes. Wash off the paste and dab some honey on the spots, then rinse the honey off after 10 minutes.
