Pepto Bismol is probably sitting somewhere in your kitchen or bathroom cupboard right now, and that’s a good thing because it’s the latest hot item in at-home facials.
This chalky pink concoction contains bismuth subsalicylate, which reduces inflammation. Just shake the bottle and dab it on with a cotton ball. Wait about five minutes (until the mask has dried), and then rinse with cool water. You will see the difference in your skin–tighter, smoother, and more youthful.
What’s the harm in trying this beauty hack? At the very least, you’ll have a smooth, clean canvas for your makeup or moisturizer. And, since you probably have this little wonder at hand, it’s a low-cost DIY beauty trick.
