I am a fan of aspirin masks. I have young 20’s hormonal, gym-going skin. That basically adds up to combo skin and random breakouts in size in quantity! I found in a few searches how to make an aspirin mask that works really well in taming and smoothing my skin. Exfoliant washes are great, but nothing works like this.  I’ve tweaked it a little for my own skin. Plus it’s so cheap and easy!

Why aspirin? The texture (grit) smooths like nothing else and it’s anti-inflammatory agents help diminish breakouts and calm inflamed skin. By exfoliating your skin, you also get rid of surface discoloration over time. Why honey? It’s moisturizing, detoxifying, and delicious for your face.

First wash your face to remove makeup. Use a damp washcloth as hot as tolerable and lay it on your face to open your pores.

Dissolve 2-3 uncoated aspirin in a pinch of water (you basically just want enough to make the pills fall apart, not to make it runny)

Add about 1/2 tablespoon of honey and mash up the aspirin until you have a gritty paste.  Apply to face and let sit for 5-10 minutes! You may feel some tingling but that’s expected. If you have one, use an electric face buffer/scrubber (or an old electric toothbrush!) to intensify the dermabrasion! Add a little water and rub with hands or buffer in circular motions! Rinse with cold water and follow with your favorite moisturizer!

I hope it helps If you have bad acne, you could add some lemon juice to the mixture! It’d be like aspirin tea!

The Kinara Red Carpet facial kit is amazing.  It’s very similar to a facial at the spa.

Clarisonic~! exfoliation~

I also like the dermalogica sebum clearing masque and Kiehl’s rare earth mask twice a week for deep cleansing.

And…Philosophy Microdelivery Peel kit (the scrub and the gel) does wonders

and thermaclear for acne…it produces this heat and ZAPS the bacteria. But you must cleans with alcohol everytime before using, to not spread the bacteria from one part of your face to another.  I ain’t gonna lie it’s painful and your face looks very red, as if you just had a facial and the esthetician popped all your pimples!

but it does help the acne go down, for me.  lol i don’t wanna sound like a thermaclear salesperson~ i bought it coz the price was reduced, and I was fed up with (or I AM still fed up with break outs!) and I actually wanted to give up on thermaclear after 2 days because it was so painful.  lol..

Couple of suggestions:

– one of the cheapest and gentlest things you can buy out there is mud mask. It is amazing if you have oily or combination skin. It is one of the few things you can use on a regular basis.

– fill a bowl with steaming water or cover your face with a hot towel. Steam really opens your pores and preps the skin for a good cleaning mask (such as mud).

– one of the best activities in a facial is the gentle face massage. You can do this, or get Fiance to help, with any product you like. It makes you feel good and stimulates the skin.

– whatever you do, don’t forget the neck and decolletage!


I am totally going to try the aspirin treatment.
