Can't get to the spa? No problem.

On Thursday, Jan. 14.'s all-new E! News' Daily Pop, Dr. Pimple Popper's Dr. Sandra Lee shared her easy-to-do recipe for a "pandemic peel." Per the popular dermatologist, her peel is made up of items you can find "around the home" and will help you peel and exfoliate amid the winter.

"So, just three simple ingredients," Dr. Lee told the Daily Pop co-hosts. "Aspirin. So, Aspirin is a derivative of salicylic acid, and we all know salicylic acid is a really great chemical peel acid. It helps with acne."

As she continued, Dr. Lee advised viewers to crush "three to four tablets" in a mortar and pestle or using the back of a spoon.

"And then, you want to mix it with a little bit of honey," she added. "Honey is an anti-inflammatory and also an anti-bacterial."

After mixing the crushed aspirin with a tablespoon of honey, Dr. Lee said to add a little oil "if you're dry." However, if you're "really oil," Dr. Lee suggested using water instead.

Next up, Dr. Lee said to mix the concoction with some warm water, this will help melt it.

"Then I take little pieces of cheesecloth and I dip it in there, so that it kind of saturates that," the TLC star stated. "And then, I apply it kind of like a mask, but in pieces on my face. I leave it there for 10, 15 minutes."

Once the allotted time is up, Dr. Lee reminded those tuning in to wash the mixture off "because you don't want salicylic acid to sit on your face."
