Asprin Mask Recipes For All Types of Skin- How To


Basic Aspirin Mask Recipe:
6 uncoated aspirin
1/2 Tbs. warm water
1 1/2 Tbs. Facial Product

Directions: Place 6 aspirin in a paper plate or plastic tray. Drop warm water over the aspirin to dissolve. Mix the aspirin around a bit to form a gritty paste. You will then mix in the paste with the appropriate facial product from the list below according to what skin type needs. After your mask is all mixed up you will apply it with you finger in a even layer on your face. The mask doesn't really need to be thick. It just needs to be evenly distributed all over the face. Then, let your mask dry for at least 10 mins. You can increase the time depending on your skin type. Very Dry for 10 min., Dry for 15 min., Oily and Very Oily 20 mins. I don't recommend leaving it on for more than 20 minutes, because it can easily be to drying. After your mask has dried dampen your finger tips and lightly scrub in your mask. Do not remove the mask, we're just trying to get off the loose particles right now. When the loose particles are all gone, we will then wet our finger tips again and scrub more vigorously. Wet your finger tips again and scrub. Repeat until all the mask is gone. Just a * Tip: For this step I like to use my facial brush to scrub with. I scrub and run the brush under the water and repeat until the mask is gone. After, I splash my face with lukewarm water just to make sure no residue is left behind. I always fallow the mask with a moisturizer suitable for your skin type, unless your skin is extremely oily.

Large Pores:
1 1/2 Tbs. Queen Helen Mint Julip Mask

Aging Skin:
1 1/2 Tbs. Queen Helen Mud Mask

Sensitive Skin:
1 1/2 Tbs. Aloe Vera Gel

Dry Skin:
1 1/2 Tbs. Honey or Plain Yogurt

Oily Skin:
1 1/2 Tbs. Cleanser for Oily Skin

Very Oily Skin:
1 1/2 Tbs. Cleanser for Oily Skin
1 tsp. Lemon Juice

Very Dry Skin:
1 1/2 Tbs. Honey or Plain Yogurt
1 tsp. Jojoba Oil or Vitamin E Oil (you can squeeze out about 3 gel capsules)

* Tip: Jojoba Oil or Vitamin E Oil (1 tsp.) can be added to any of the other recipes for added moisture.
* Tip: Lemon Juice (1 tsp.) can be added to any of the other recipes to zap oil.

Zap That Zit: Night Time Spot Treatment:
1 uncoated aspirin
2 drops of warm water
1 pea size drop of acne spot treatment

Directions: Place the aspirin in your clean palm, add the drops of water on top of aspirin, dissolve. Add the acne spot treatment of your choice, and mix with your finger a bit. Apply the mixture directly on your blemish. Go to sleep and let it work it's magic. In the morning the zit has been zapped. If you catch the pimple as soon as you feel it start to come out, it will be completely gone. For a serious monster zit, you may have to use this for 2 or 3 nights, but it will be gone after that.

* Tip: I like to use an acne spot treatment that contains benzoyl peroxide instead of the salicylic acid. This gives that zit a one, two punch. I mix the aspirin with either the AcneFree Repair Lotion or a little Clean & Clear PersaGel 10. They both work great.
Aspirin = salicylic acid
      +
AcneFree Repair Lotion or Clean & Clear PersaGel 10 = Benzoyl Peroxide
      =
Zap That Zit

I know you will love your clear skin!

oh thanks for these recipes Tiffany.
I've got a horrible zit on the side of my face that just won't go away, and have been there for over a month now - it retty deep and clogged up inside. Let see if this will help unclog it.

Aw man, sounds like your zit might be cystic:( Zap That Zit will definitely clear it up. You may have to apply it for a little longer than you usually have to, but it will go away. I would also try the aspirin mask every other night along with this until it clears up. I'm not sure what your skin type is, but you probably will need to use an oil-free moisturizer after the mask, then spot treat with the Zap That Zit.

most likely :( It's been bugging me. I tried extracting it (used a sterile needle to prick the skin - sorry if I'm grossing you out), and all i get is blood. It's pretty deep.
