So, I thought I would share with you guys my normal face mask/wash, DIY style. I have a very rare form of Rosacea that was caught in the inflammatory stage, very late stage and has forever damaged my skin. (I can't for the life of me remember what the Dermatologist called it, I was in a bit of a shock cause I went in thinking I had cystic acne and found out I had a rare skin condition and melanoma, so sorry about that. If I have a chance I will look back into my paper work to find it and update this post for ya.)
My skin is extremely sensitive to most topical anything, even the medical cleaners and pills and creams my Dermatologist proscribed I couldn't use. Very few things have I found that my face can handle and this is one is by far my favorite!
After seven years, yes 7 years, I have finally discovered what works for a facial cleanser that I can actually use with no side effects! I do this twice a week and it is so amazing. It makes my skin glow! Also helps heal scars. It is very simple. I get a small percaline or glass dish, like what you would put ketchup in for corn dogs, I know gross corn dogs and I don't eat them, just an analogy. *note: I am not a Dr. of any kind. I am just sharing what I have found good for me after exhausting and frustrating trial and error. Use common since if trying something off the internet.
Step 1. take two full strength aspirin and put them in the dish and then drop a few drops of filtered water on them.
Step 2. as that absorbs, grab a small 1/4 tsp of organic lemon juice OR if you prefer, as I do, 1/4 tsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice.
Step 3. take your finger and mesh the wetted aspirin down. Then pour the lemon juice in.
Step 4. in front of a mirror is best, dip your finger in the mixture and kinda scoop it up so you have lemon juice and aspirin on your finger. Very lightly spread it on your face. The above pic is what it will look like on your face, not too thick but not so thin there is nothing there.
*note: do not rub it on, this can irritate sensitive skin as the aspirin is course. Also, stay away from eyes.
If you have a zit or small abrasion on your face, it might burn, it doesn't bother me. But an FYI that it can.
Step 5: Wait until it is dry, maybe 5 min or so. You will know it is dry cause the aspirin will start to flake off. Then lightly rinse your face by splashing with water. Pat dry.
Your face will glow and it will kill any bacteria on your face while it dissolves all the old and dead skin cells. All without irritating sensitive skin. Enjoy!
