Mild Beta Hydroxy Peel/Mask at Home: DIY


How are you all? Hope everything is going on well.

Today I am going to share with you  my favorite skincare which makes my skin soft and smooth.Hope you guys find it useful and your skin also glows like mine.I have been using this for the past 6 months and I have seen and felt the difference.
skin peel with aspirin

Things needed:

• An aspirin tablet [as one tablet is enough for face, if you want for the neck, add one more tablet][use non-coated one- here I am using Disprin].
• Plastic bowl[its always ideal to use plastic oneswhen you are dealing with chemicals].
• A heavy spoon or a mortar and pestle [to pound the tablet to powder].
• Few drops of lime juice[you can use water also but the effect will be slightly less].
• Good moisturizer of your choice.


• Not to be used on burnt,bruised or cut skin etc
• Some may not tolerate this so in case of irritation wash off immediately.
• Can be used either once or twice[if you can tolerate]a week but not too often.
• Mild tingling sensation is common immediately after application,but don’t worry it is common it settles down with time.


• Pound the aspirin tablet either with spoon or anyway you like, you will get a gritty grainy powder, add few drops of lime juice to the powder[don’t make it too runny-usually-7 drops is enough for one tablet, the mixture starts to foam immediately after you have added the lime juice.


• Apply this mixture immediately to the face and leave for 2 minutes.

• After 2 minutes massage your face with few drops of water.

• Later leave this on face as pack for 15-30minutes[depending on your tolerance]

• Later rinse off with plenty of water[I usually do this procedure just before bath on the day I am planning my at home lactic acid peel so that my face is clean and it works nicely]


• Follow with your favorite moisturizer. You can you this for any part of your body[remember my caution]. It should be done for at least 5-6 times for more pronounced results.

Viola! Clean and clear skin is what you have!

How it works:

• Aspirin is nothing but salicylic acid which is a beta hydroxy acid.
• Salicylic acid is wildly used as a remedy for acne[2%salicylic acid is the composition in Neutrogena anti acne face wash]
• Salicylic acid dissolves the sebum and clears pores, so this peel is best for oily skinned people[dry skin people also can do this but should definitely follow with a moisturizer]
• Beta hydroxy acid dissolves dead cells -so ideal for tanned and mildly pigmented skin.

• Completely removes tan if you do it for 5-6 times.
