I am sharing what I have used - feel free to research & find a recipe that works for you!
2 or 3 UNCOATED aspirin tablets
1 tsp of water
First I crushed the aspirin tablets just a little bit to help speed up the dissolving.
I put the crushed aspirin in a shot glass & added just a little bit of lukewarm water.
Add a little honey ( I did a couple squirts, or maybe a tsp)
Mix this all up and viola, you have a mask/scrub. (It is a little messy, so I do this before showering. By doing this it allows me to get up to the hairline also since I don't have to worry about messing up the hair *ha so funny if you know me*)
Gently rub the mixture onto your skin in circular motions, avoiding the eye area.
Keep rubbing gently as a scrub
Leave on for 10 - 15 minutes as a mask. (this will not get tight like normal masks!)
Rinse off with lukewarm water - if you used this as a mask, use gentle circular motions again to gently scrub off.
Follow with a non-alcohol toner & a high SPF moisturizer!
There you have it - cheap & effective, just like me :o)
