Why we use the aspirin mask is that aspirin is a Salicylic acid a type of phenolic acid and a beta hydroxy acid.
When making an aspirin mask you want to us uncoated aspirin. Now I know these uncoated aspirins are hard to find. Although I get mine online at http://www.rxzone.us/ they are $11.99 plus $4.99 shipping. You do get 1000 325 Mg (5 Grain) Tablets.
Now the recipes for these aspirin masks use just a few on the many ingredients that you can use.
1: Aspirin Mask
Start by crush 3 asprins with a morter and pestle and add it to about a tablespoon of plain yougert. Using it like a scrub work it around your face just a little and then let it set for about 20 minutes or so until it dries. Then rinse with warm water. It leaves your skin feeling marvelous.
2: Aspirin Mask
This recipe uses 10 apirins, one teaspoon of green tea, two teaspoon of half and half, and one teaspoon of honey, mixed into a paste.
Spread it on your face and let it dry. When rinsing this mask off with warm water you will have to do a bit of scrubbing. It really keeps the blemishes at bay and makes your skin smooth.
3: Aspirin Mask
Take ten asprins add it to three teaspoons of warm lemon juice to melt the asprin. Then add one teaspoon of honey and three drops of tea tree oil. I start with one teaspoon of French Green Clay to make the mask, you may want to add more..
looking through the forms I found that many use Kaolin to make a past
I also found this note posted and wanted to pass it along.
Just a minor word of caution regarding asprin masks and toners. If you suffer from broken thread veins, easy bruising or rosacea, asprin used regularly on the face will make the problem worse. Asprin is absorbed through the skin and is a blood thinner so it can quickly make broken thread veins even thinner and more prone to leakage. At first it will make your skin look better, but after 3 or 4 goes you will notice that broken thread veins are becoming more prominent.
I don't want to worry people, because most people will do very well using asprin cosmetically, but if you do have a tendency towards broken thread veins or easy bruising, then stick to aha's instead.
When using Salicylic Acid you must wear high level UVA and UVB protection!
