OK, so we are all hoping to be beautiful and glowing on our wedding day, but really, who has lots of money for different treatments?  Um…not me.  Well, recently I heard of some different beautification techniques that are really cheap, and can be done with items you likely already have around your house.  So what problems will I tackle: Under eye circles, puffiness, tightening of pores, softening of the skin, acne, environmental damage, and aging.  Wow, sounds like a hefty list, right?  I hope the tips and tricks I have for you will be beneficial. 

Here’s how I looked before all my beautification began:

First up: Acne, softening of the skin and tightening of pores via an Aspirin Mask. 

What you need: 

Just one bottle of generic uncoated aspirin (about $3) and water.

 How to make it:  

1.  Put 4-6 uncoated (very important) aspirin in a small bowl and crush them into a powder.  It doesn’t have to be super fine, just make sure it’s good and broken up.

2.  Add 3 drops of warm water and mix to form a paste.  If it’s too thick and clumpy, add more water.

3.  Spread the mixture over your face and neck.  Wait about 10 minutes for it to dry.

4.  To remove, pat warm water over your face and start to massage your face in small circles, using the aspirin granules as an exfoliant.  Rinse the rest off and admire your gorgeously glowing complexion.

NOTE:  This mask can be messy as bits of the aspirin can flake off your face.  Try to stay in one place so you don’t leave a trail of white powder all over your house.

What at home beauty secrets do you have?
