Mix 1/2 oz. of apple cider vinegar with 4 oz. of mineral water. Finely crush 5 plain aspirin, then add to the mixture. Apply to your face, in areas where you have acne, rough skin, or enlarged pours. Keep the mixture in your fridge for up to 1 month.

This is great for oily skin - especially during the summer months. Just massage it in; you can feel it cutting right through the oil and restoring the pH of the skin. I just drop the aspirin in the water. It will dissolve by itself in a few minutes (no need to crush it), then add the vinegar. Be sure to use plain aspirin, not the coated variety! I've never refrigerated it though.
