The Almighty Aspirin Mask

News of the Aspirin mask is spreading like wildfire because it’s cheap, it’s easy to do, and it works! It is excellent for people looking to soften their skin, or for people who have acne because Aspirin has Salicylic acid in it and gently exfoliates the skin. I started using the mask a little over 3 weeks ago, and I do it every Friday or Saturday on parts of my face that have the most/worst pimples. This is one of the first things that I have done and been stunned by the results after I tried it! Just about every pimple I apply it to will literally be half the size if not gone within a day or even a couple of hours. Basically all it is are some brand name Aspirin, or generic brand (either works the same) non-coated tablets. They can found at just about any of your local markets for around $3 bucks.

You get 3-4 Aspirin or more if you want, but I have read that people vomit if they use more than 4-5(I’m not sure if that is true though?). You then put them in a plate or bowl and add a few drops of water or more depending on the consistency that you want. You then wait a few minutes for the tablets to soften and take a spoon or your finger to mash them up and apply it to your face. It will be chalky depending on how much water you use, so be gentle when applying it to your skin. I end it with that and put it on my skin for 20 minutes, but there are a lot of variants! For example: Adding honey, or lemon juice, olive oil, etc. So be creative and experiment a little to see what works best for you!

Some things to remember are: Don’t use it more than 2-3 times a week, 3 times being the most! Don’t put it on or around your eyes. It’s probably not a good Idea to leave on for too long, but everyone is different so whatever works for you. Also beware it does smell sour.

So that is about it for the Aspirin mask, I definitely would recommend giving it a try or two, and telling me about your experience! Thanks for reading, and have fun if you decide to try it!
