Have any of you tried the aspirin mask? Aspirin is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), a salicylic acid, just like in most acne clearing products out there. Its incredibly deep cleaning. There are also so many recipes for it, but here is the one I use: 01. Two or more crushed inexpensive aspirin tablets 02. Few drops of water or honey, not too much... you dont want it real watery at all. - put it all over your face, it should be of grainy texture.. & honey helps a lot. -wait~15 or so minutes or until it starts kind of flaking off. - wash it off. the little bits of the tablet act as exfoliators. & that's it! People tweak it for their skin type. ie: yogurt, aloe vera, etc. It can help with oiliness, breakouts, blemishes, etc... and my leaves skin very smooth. Though its not recommended more than~three times a week... its a bit drying, so you should moisturize after... Not for everyone, since some people are allergic to aspirin. So yeah please share your experiences with it:)

I mix two tablets of aspirin with a teaspoon of beaten eggs and a little water and it becomes an effective mask. I like it because it is even and smoothly spread on the face just like a good mask. I do it twice a week because my skin is oily. The egg acts as a stretching element and it makes my skin appear smooth and reduced in fine wrinkles. I find that the aspirin eliminates small pimples which usually occurs soon before I am having my menstrual. It is a very effective prevention step and easy to prepare in the kitchen. I used to put acne/pimple cream before but now I no longer have to do that. My skin never had any pimples or acne since I wear the aspirin mask. Some of the time when I have the mood I would use it as a facial scrub and I don't add anything else, just some drops of water. Then I will wash using the ordinary facial wash.

I've never heard of this one before. I have read about using baking soda as a face mask. Then people said it was too harsh for your face.
