DIY for the Fastest Way to Clear Skin!

By Huda Heidi Kattan

What’s keeping you form perfect skin right now, honestly? There are SOOOO many ingredients out there for perfect skin, yet most of us never really take advantage of those super cheap ingredients that completely transform your skin! Well, I loooove to experiment, and most of the time when I travel, I spend quite a bit of time concocting recipes for quick fixes! The truth is, sometimes these actually come out BETTER than those super pricey products, and believe me, I’ve tried them all!

This DIY for clear skin is sooooo great for acne, blemishes, or even black/whiteheads, plus it kind of works to detox your skin!




1/2 cup Spring water
1/4 Apple Cider Vinegar
4-6 Aspirin (uncoated & crushed)

Mix ingredients together in an empty bottle. Let sit for overnight to make sure aspirin is completely dissolved. Saturate cotton ball, and use as a toner at night (and day if experiencing bad breakouts). Discard after 30 days.

      Lemon works reaaaally well! I find it works much better than the Vaseline for the knee area! :)

        I suggest scrubing with lemon and salt then using the vaseline even tone cream … I used to do it for a short time then I gt busy but it really worked !

      Hi darling! NOT a funny question at all! That’s funny you say that, I bought aspirin once, it was coated and very hard to crush and did not help any of my breakouts. I did purchase some basic aspirin from the states and it worked much better! I recommend when you travel to try purchasing some aspirin overseas as there may be different levels of certain ingredients!

    can we replace spring water by normal mineral water?

    • 9 hudabeauty

      You can! Also you can use distilled water, but I would avoid tap water since it can have some metals in it

    could you do something about making your knees lighter?

    • 13 hudabeauty

      lemons are the BEST thing ever! Try rubbing them on your knees everyday and it will help!

    I heard this is not recommended for sensitive skin. I also heard this helps out to fade dark areas on your face but it can actually whiten the whole face a little bit and I definitely do not need that. My face is pale enough, specially during winter time, compared to the rest of my body. And it is not recommended for dry skins either. Is that correct?
    I found another option that seems to be more appropiate for sensitivie and dry skins. Have you ever tried this one or heard about it?
    3 aspirin
    lemon juice
    bicarbonate of soda

    Hi Hudabeauty!
    I have really bad breakouts on my face and its pretty oily but sometimes dry. I use Maybelline photo finish moose and i always wash my face at the end of the day. But my face seems to continue to be bad and breakout….
    what should/can i do to make it go away and better??

    Hey all,

    Just thought I’d let you know about a freebies website that send out some amazing products! All they ask for in return is that you complete a quick online evaluation regarding the products they send you. They don’t tell you what the brand is but you get to keep nearly a full sample. The website is (for all my peeps that live in Hong Kong!)

    Lots of love,
    Eve Taylor..x

      Hi honey, it should be fine but if you’re skin is very dry right now, then you should try not to wash it too much! I went through a period where my skin was dry and I was breaking out constantly, but I was doing too much to it, which was part of the reason why it was so dry! When your skin is too try, your sebaceous glands go into overkill and start to produce more oil, making you break out (with really large acne most of the time). It’s best to take it easy on your skin!
