So I'm not so good at this blogging thing. I have a few postings I hope to get up within a few days but first I want to update you on the Advil experiment.
While it doesn't work overnight (as I was promised from the beauty queen who touted it on television), it does bring the inflamation down within a few days so I was quite pleased. So here are the steps.
1. Take an Advil (or use a generic like I did) and grind it up into a powder.
2. Remove as much of the coating as possible. This should be easy if you crush the pill before grinding it up. I found that it mostly just peeled back. Any of the coating that is left will add color to your mixture once you add water. Which bring us to...
3. Add a very small amount of water to a portion of the powder. You probably won't need all of the powder at once unless you are dealing with multiple spots. Be very cautious about how much water you use as the goal is to make a paste.
4. Once you have your paste (add more powder if you used too much water), place on the offending pimple.
Note that as it dries it will flake off and be pretty obvious on your face so best save this for just before bed.
I've tried this a few times now and have been happy with the results! Let me know what you think!
