Ack, ZITS! Hate ’em, loathe ’em—need ’em to be GONE forever! Luckily, there are some quick and easy DIY recipes that’ll help keep those nasty li’l boogers at bay!
Anti-Zit Face Mask
1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda
1-2 Tbsp. filtered water
- Mix the baking soda and water together until you’ve got a paste.
- Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
- Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
- Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.
Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.
