The battle against acne caused by harsh make-up, product build up, and stress is over!

1 tablespoon lime juice

Mash the ingredients together until the Aspirin is fully dissolved. Apply the mixture all over your face, or spot-treat problem areas. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.
