Pepto Bismol is a great medicine for the inside of your body, but it’s also great for the outside! Learn to use Pepto Bismol as a face mask for sensitive skin.
If you have sensitive skin, you have to be very careful with the products you use in your skin care routine. A lot of skin care products, even if they are labeled for sensitive skin, can include ingredients that will cause redness, inflammation, or even breakouts. Pepto Bismol is great to use to calm sensitive skin and relieve the skin from irritation by other skin care products.
Tip: If you have sensitive skin, check the ingredients in your skin care products. Use products that are paraben free to avoid irritation.
What you need:
- 1 bottle of Pepto Bismol
- 2-3 cotton pads or balls
What to do:
Pour a small amount of Pepto Bismol onto your cotton pads or cotton balls. Apply it to your face slowly and cover the whole face, or a sensitive area of the face. You may need to add more Pepto Bismol to the cotton to cover your face. You can also cover your neck and chest area to hydrate the skin.
The Pepto Bismol will feel cool on your skin immediately. I love how refreshing it feels! Leave the mask on your skin for 5-8 minutes. Rinse the mask off with warm water and pat your skin dry.
Tip: Always pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Using a wiping motion can irritate the skin – especially if it is sensitive!
