you can search the boards for Asprin Mask, there are many excellent threads about it.
i am going to tell you anyway because you will find almost the sae information.
First, you need to have uncoated Asprin (that disolves in water within seconds), crush 4-5 Asprins or drop few drops of water and wait 2-3 minutes to make a creamy paste.
Then you apply it on your face as a mask. You have to wait 15-20 minutes.
but i would recommend to apply it for 10 minutes for the first 2 days, then 15 minutes the 3rd day and then 20 for the rest of your days (just to make your skin used to it)
then you can wash your face. it ill come off very easily.
if you find your face extremely dry after washing your face, you can apply some Aloe Vera gel (Natural gel right from the leaf is the best but you can also apply 99.9% gel tubes on the shelfs like GNC which i sometimes use)
you will feel the difference in your Pimples and red marks within 12 hours of the first use. Continue using it (no more than 20 mins) and then you will SEE the difference.
i have tried many things (all natural or homemade) and Asprin Mask worked the best!
the other Benfits other than reducing redness is it shrinks the pimples very fast, heals them, stop them new ones, makes your skin a little glowy and some other that i cant remember right now.
hope that i have covered most of the important stuff.
Best of lucks.
