Spot Control :
Got a spot? Crush up an aspirin and make into a paste with a tablespoon of water. Salicylic acid is used for spots in facial washes and is the cousin of aspirin. It basically works by drying out the spot. If you can’t afford a microdermabrasion, go to your local beach (no joke) and pick up some sand to use as a mild exfoliating treatment. Or, try Nurture’s skin brightening facial exfoliator for deep cleansing and a gentle microdermabrasion-like effect at only £7.45.
