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.

Zit-Zappin’ Treatment
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.
