OK, I decided to beef up my aspirin/yogurt mask yesterday because I wanted to really tighten the pores - Wowee, worked great, but without overdrying this one's a keeper! Smile

Mix up the following batch in a ceramic, glass or porcelain cup. Do NOT use metal spoon to combine ingredients! Instead, opt for wooden, glass or just use your fingers!

1 heaping teaspoon Aztec Secrets 100% bentonite dry clay [available at most health food stores]
1 teaspoon organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar
5-6 lightly coated or uncoated aspirin tablets
1 heaping teaspoon plain Greek yogurt

Combine clay and vinegar until you get a thin paste. Drop in 5-6 uncoated or lightly coated aspirin tablets and stir until dissolved; the addition of aspirin will thicken the consistency a little. Add the yogurt and mix thoroughly; at this point, you'll have a nice thick paste, enough to slather liberally over your face, neck and decollete

Leave on until dry, rinse off with tepid water, more on the cool side. In my case, I left on for nearly 45 minutes. After rinsing off, my face wasn't as red and tight as it would have been with the clay alone and tighter than it would have been with just the yogurt/aspirin combo. All in all, my face was left soft, smooth, firm and minimized pores!

I'll repost after I've been using this recipe for a month or two ENJOY!!

Well I have used honey before in other face masks and its a wonderful moisturizer. Its a humectant so its for moisturizer. I have never broken out from honey but it IS messy. I have never tried yogurt simply because I have never had plain yogurt around. I do have a container of it right now actually for a recipe and I'm going to save a little for a mask. I just know yogurt is good for your skin I'm not sure why though, hopefully someone else can explain....
And actually, Candy, I was JUST thinking about adding some kaolin to my mask! I was trying to come up with my own aspirin mask to try and what I've been thinking is asprin with a little apple cider vinegar to liquify it and then mix it with kaolin. I haven't tried it yet but that was something that I just came up with that sounded good. I'm planning on trying as many combinations as possible though over the next couple weeks. I really need to start doing masks again. Its like when my skin is clear I really slack off on my skincare and even though its clear it still needs to be nourished and moisturized and all that so I just have to start again.

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.


luckylouie, so for those that has rosacea or broken veins, it's best not to use aspirin at all? So that's basically BHA/ salicyclic acid? My nose has some broken caps so does that mean no product containing salicyclic acid in it? I heard that AHA doesn't work on clogged pores cuz it's water soluble so it only works on the surface of the skin instead of penetrating deep down the pores. Can someone pls clarify this for me? Sad

Has anyone seen this - aspirin in a powered form? It is called BC analgestic powder. I found it at the drug store.
This is a great find for those of us who want an instant aspirin mask Very Happy

My favorite aspirin mask recipe:

2 BC powders (roughly equal to 4 aspirin tablets)
Squirt of Aloe Gel
2 Tsp Royal Jelly in Honey

Are you in the States? If so, I've never heard of this. And googling doesn't seem to bring anything up. Is "BC analgesic powder" the full product name?

Amnis - yes I am in the states. I purchased it at Walgreens. I am looking at the box right now and it says BC in white inside a blue circle on a mainly white box and in small letters in ll corner it says "24 analgesic powders". It is made by GlaxoSmithKline. I found it by the other aspirin products.

As far as I know, to add some honey and milk may make your skin soft and tender.Laughing

No - stay clear of the eye area, the skin is too fragile for the granules of aspirin.

Has anyone here used the aspirin mask while breastfeeding? I tried an aspirin mask last week and loved it, plus I used Silken Pearl refining past with salicylic acid in it for two nights and my skin looked fantastic when I got up in the mornings. Then I read a post from someone that said that the SA can absorb through your skin and get into your breast milk. Unfortunately my doctor is on holidays but I called the nurse and she said it's no problem to apply a cream containing SA. I then called Motherisk and listened to the recording about aspirin. They don't mention topically applying SA but did say that you do not have to quit breastfeeding while taking aspirin, that the amounts that get into the milk is so small it will not harm the baby. So my thinking is that if it is OK to take it orally, than topically should be OK. Has anyone discussed this with their doctor?

The last time I did my aspirin mask, I must have put too much gycolic acid in and then I left it in too long because parts of my face (esp. chin area) got a chemical burn. It was painful and ugly. It's been two weeks and there are still dark marks and my skin still feels tender at some areas.

Oh sorry to hear that. Please make sure you are wearing sunscreen these days to avoid further damage. The dark marks will eventually fade just takes time.

Ok, I have been using an aspirin mask since I first started OCM (actually, BECAUSE of the aspirin mask I felt confident enough with Carekates' crazy claim about control oil with oil and tried OCM). I'm so glad I did!! That was about 2 years ago.

Anywho, Ages back I bought the sampler from DR. H (oily version) to try the products out that got so many raves. I still had the acne mask packet as I didn't care for it much.

I decided to add it to my recipe as I read alot of folks adding clay to theirs and WOW!! I loved my mask before but now I'm crazy about it. Here is my recipe for a single mask:

5 aspirins
couple drops of water (to soften them)
drop of honey
couple drops of milk
drop/squirt aloe vera juice (if you use a live plant then I cut 1/2 inch and use pulp)
sprinkle Dr. H acne mask on top

Mix the whole thing up and I put on face after I've OCM, toner, and let sit for about 10-15 minutes.

I then moisten my fingers and gently exfoliate. I do not rub the mask dry. You have to get it wet again to get the best results and when done I splash my face to remove.

I will then add the rest of my stuff. I find my vit C and JB products just work better after doing this. The combo is to die for!! I'm very happy adding in the acne mask. I wish I'd done it sooner.

FYI: When I tried using the acne mask alone it brought up lots of acne. It made me purge tooooooo much and I didn't like it as I scar easily. Now I'm going to have to break down and buy it just to have with my aspirin mask.!! Cool

I don't know if anyone else did this earlier, but I have to go to work and haven't read past the first page. Sorry if I've repeated anything but I'm really happy with this lastest addition and wanted to share!
