Put a hot towel over your face for about five minutes, then make a paste out of a few uncoated aspirin tablets and warm water (about a drop of water for every two tablets). Rub the paste on your face in a circular motion, leave on a couple minutes, rinse well. Your skin will feel amazing! Also works great on hands." —buttmuffin
