There are many different variations, but I copied this from the DIY sticky to get you started.

From EDS member Autumn...
This recipe was posted originally on www.makeupalley.com when I first joined in 2003. It is still talked about on the forum.

plain uncoated aspirin are best
(I find that Walmart no name brand are the cheapest.)

I dissolve in hot water; just a few drops from my instant hot water dispenser.

I mash with a spoon. You can use just aspirin and water; however it is flaky.

You can add a half teaspoon of the following to give it better body and sticking together properties.

1) plain yogurt (source of lactic acid)
2) honey (moisturizing)
3) aloe vera gel (the kind from the health store that is almost 100% pure)

I usually use 6-10 aspirins. I also like to do my chest area also.

Apply on a clean face leave on 5 - 10 minutes and rinse well.

The active ingredient in aspirin is a form of BHA. It also gently exfoliates. I try to use 1 - 2 a week.

You can also spot treat a blemish by using just one aspirin and a little water. It takes the redness out and seems to help with healing.

*NOTE* must be aspirin. Tylenol, motrin,etc will not work. Uncoated is best. Coated will work however it is more difficult to dissolve.

Chrissie, what issues are you seeing improvement with on the chest area? I have sun damage and broken capillaries - never thought of using the aspirin mask there but would definitely give it a try.

The aspirin mask, seems to clear up my chest area. I don't have alot of issues there, but in the spring and summer I wear low cut shirts, and I want my chest, neck and face to have the same tone.
I wouldn't suggest using the aspirin mask every day...probably 2-3 times a week is enough. But spot treating problem areas is okay.

The aspirin mask clears my face up. I have a mortar and pestal that I use to crush up the aspirins, and I just add yogurt and honey to that.
