When it comes to gamble of beautifying our faces we’ll always be ‘all in’ but the harsh reality of even harsher chemicals can often be more risk than reward. Since a powerful miracle derived from nature is always better than a man-made eco-poisoning one any day, we flipped over this home remedy from Dr Oz. Behold the beauty power of the LEMON! Combined with a bit of Aspirin and Baking Soda, this pantry found skin remedy can tame even the most disobedient of skin on the cheap. Ready to brighten your face as well as your day? Then Lets Do The DIY Thang, shall we? First up you’ll need some tunes….given we’re using sunshine bright lemons, this little ditty totally seemed appropriate. Next grab you some non-coated aspirin, lemon juice (ideally direct from the lemon, especially if you have this) and baking soda. First, Mash up 6-12 non-coated aspirins and combine with the freshly squeezed lemon juice. Next, let the aspirin dissolve until it turns into a paste. Apply the mask to your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes.  Then remove the face mask by dipping a cotton round in some baking soda and some water. VOILA! You have gorgeous glowing skin all thanks to times found in the kitchen. The aspirin, which contains salicylic acid, helps to remove stubborn acne while the vitamin C in the lemon juice helps to minimize sun damage. Together they work like a nature made chemical peel at a pennies on the ton o’ dollars you’d spend at the spa. The baking soda works at the end to neutralize the salicylic acid so your more dewy fresh-faced and less rosy-nosed rudolph. During these rough economic times, we can all really appreciate the concept of beauty remedies on cheap, especially when making a trip to the spa is as easy as entering your kitchen pantry.

    Nice article. Lemons are so under-rated, like many fruit. Great that you pointed out some interesting stuff here.
