This is a homemade salicylic acid and honey mask to help with clogged pores.

Home remedies for acne! Cure your closed comedones!

I'm going to stick to the salicylic acid for this next post, even though it's not next in the regimen. Since you already have the salicylic acid powder, and I've explained how it works (see last post), we'll just dive right into making this crucial, excellent masque for getting rid of clogged pores FOREVER! Caveat here: some people are very sensitive to Salicylic acid, so test this masque out on the back of your hand first. It should not burn!

I just want to say that I'm still surprised every morning when I look in the mirror that my face is actually free of those horrible bumps. My pores are smaller, too, I've noticed, and my complexion is very even-toned. I'm certain it's the salicylic acid treatments that are causing this awesomeness. It makes sense that if your pores are free of debris, they'll be less inflamed and will appear smaller. Right?


Help. This is real.


The masque (spelling it this way helps it work better): I use this about once a week. When I first started making it I was using it twice a week, which is fine, but I wouldn't continue that for too long, as you may cause lasting damage to the acid mantle on your face and end up making everything worse.

The ingredients:

Salicylic acid powder

Raw, organic honey (preferably local to your area)


I do an approximately 15% solution, but you can go up to 25% if you can stand it. I think of it in terms of sixths. One sixth is about 15%.

Place 1/2 teaspoon of salicylic acid powder in a glass or ceramic bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of alcohol. Mix it up with a spoon or chopstick until the powder dissolves. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of honey. Mix it all up until it's all the same consistency.


Using your fingers, smear the stuff on your clean, dry face. It will probably sting a little at first, especially if you're using a higher concentration (percentage of salicylic acid). After a minute or two, it will start feeling less tingly. Leave it on for 40 minutes or so, and then rinse it off with warm or cool water. Make sure you rinse it off completely. Moisturize with a little drop of hemp oil, and you're good to go! Cured!
