DIRECTIONS

  • Crush aspirin until fine, pour into container.
  • Add water filling small shot glass sized glass to the 1/2-3/4 mark.
  • Stir with toothpick, keep toothpick in glass and stir as you use.
  • As you apply it to your face, dip your fingers to bottom and "scoop" up mixture, as it settles.
  • Apply to face, neck & chest if you like.
  • I always found that the palm of the hand that I applied it with was very soft afterwards, so last time I also applied it to both hands front & back, which exfoliated the dry skin on the backs of my hands nicely.
  • By the time you get to your last parts the first place you applied will be drying & flaking, so apply to your face Last (if you're applying it to other areas as well).
  • **If you plan on applying it to more than just your face, you should start out with the minimum of 20 tablets, you can experiment with what is enough, adding or reducing the # of tabs needed the next time (so remember what you did & if it was enough or too much).
  • This mask can be used 2-3 times a week.
  • I find that plain olive oil applied in the evening or the next day is a wonderful moisturizer.
  • Also note that if you have some leftover, you can let the aspirin settle to the bottom (takes 5-10 min or so) & then carefully pour off the water on top & set it aside in your glass to let dry & then rehydrate it to use for spot acne treatments until you're ready to you do your whole face again.
