I invented a new face mask tonight

I was a little bored so for some reason I decided on a little variation of the aspirin facemask with added magnesium sulphate thinking that this would draw my spots out.

I crushed 4 aspirin into a paste as usual then added a small spoon of magnesium sulphate paste and mixed with the end of a teaspoon.
To make it a bit more face masky I put a squidge of actual clay face mask. mine is boots botanics.

I slathered the lot on and left it a while. I tell you what it did something as when I went to wash off one of my spots had popped WITHOUT ME EVEN TOUCHING IT. It was a bit good.

Can't visibly notice anything else erupting but skin feels very smooth.

Hmmm I googled magnesium sulphate and what you say seems to be true!

No wonder my dad used it successfully for a tooth abcess confused

Yowsers. Was it a bit burny?

Didn't hurt at all. Slight sting on my spots that's all. If I wake up a mutant I'll report back

my fave is lemon juice and baking powder, makes my skin clean looking instantly.

That makes sense as MS paste is a drawing ointment. Where did you get it from? I can't find it anywhere these days and had to resort to making my own!

I got it from my local chemist. £3.49 for a small tub but you only need a bit. I reckon using that amount I could do about 10 facials per tub. I am def going to do it again
