Budgeting Like a Boss: Aspirin Masks for a case of the Lovelies

IMG_4444So we just recently discussed my being poor and making stuff so I can still be a fancy lady in my post about the amazing Thyme Toner – well guess what my most favorite frankensteins!?! That toner has a compadre and her name is Aspirin Mask!!

And it’s exactly what it sounds like. I’m terribly sorry I can’t provide more drama and wonderment…or even a drumroll. But alas – this shiz is worth your time!! Work a Thyme Toner -slash- Aspirin Mask combo and your pants’ll be so fancy you’ll grow Jimmy Choos overnight that match everything you’ll ever wear, and they’ll come with a free castle. Speaking of which…do you vacuum castles? Sweep? How does that even work? Are there castle Roombas? I bet the stairs are a bitch.

Anyway, the aspirin mask has major bonuses: (a) It’s CHEAP (b) It has very few instructions, for those of us that slightly suck at following them (c) IT WORKS (d) It’s a two-fer, it clears blemishes and exfoliates!! HUZZAH!!

Here’s what you’re going to want to do:

  1. Crush 3 regular 325mg aspirin into a fine powder (doesn’t matter what brand, so buy IMG_4442whatever’s cheapest) – I use a mortar and pestle because it’s easy and I make less of a mess
  2. Add in 3 pea-sized drops of Aloe Vera Gel (as close to 100% pure aloe as you can find)
  3. Mix it up with your finger – apply over entire face, or just blemished areas, with finger tips – make sure to avoid that tender eye area. It’s not creamy like a mud mask, sorta gritty with the grit all randomly spaced on your face, but trust me, it’s doing it’s job on there.
  4. Let dry. (I usually do deodorant, body lotion, and brush teeth while I wait)IMG_4443
  5. Run some hot water, and get your fingertips wet – rub gently into the mask in a circular motion, adding water to fingers as necessary, until you’ve remoistened your entire face. This shouldn’t cause you physical discomfort, it should just create a nice scrubby feeling
  6. Wet a washcloth under the hot water and do a thorough job of removing the remainder of the maskIMG_4446
  7. Pat face dry with a clean towel, apply your preferred toner, and a good restorative moisturizing night cream
  8. Your skin will thank you by being softer than the day you were born.
  9. Repeat 1-2 times a week, depending on your skin’s needs (don’t overdo it or you’ll see redness) for clear, smooth, naturally gorgeous skin.


Side Bar: Benjamin and I are trying to get preggs, so I’ve got to check with the doc on this one – I’ve read that your skin absorbs 68% of what you touch and processes it through your liver – so I just want to make sure it’s okay to carry on with my favorite mask during that whole gestation thing. If you’re preggo or TTC, check with your doc too, every lady’s different and I want to make sure all those bebes stay safe and lovely ❤
