The Best DIY Mask for Hormonal Acne
That You’ve Never Heard Of
For me, there is nothing better than stumbling across a secret ingredient that very few people seem to be talking about. It seems like once the word about a new product gets out, it spreads so quickly. Whether it is something you consume, like charcoal drinks, or a natural skin care ingredient, like licorice root, it is usually just a matter of time before EVERYONE and their mother is talking about it.
A while back, I found a string of threads in an old beauty site forum. (If I could remember the site, I would share it. :-)) A few people had started a discussion about hormonal breakouts and cysts, and someone mentioned PRID. I did a quick search on PRID, and found that it is a drawing salve used for splinters, blisters and ingrown hairs.
I was instantly intrigued. If this drawing salve is safe for skin and draws out impurities, wouldn’t it be perfect for cystic breakouts? And, aside from just a spot treatment for acne, could this be incorporated in a face mask? And finally, why is no one talking about using drawing salve in a face mask?!
