I can't believe it has been 6 months! I used to be on this board several times a day! Now I haven't logged on for a few months!

I just wanted to let everyone know that my skin is still as clear and beautiful as ever after having started the Aspirin mask 6 months ago! Real quick, my typical routine is:

Shower in the morning, using whichever soap I have, usually a gel and a scrubby cloth/wash cloth.
After shower, I put on a thin layer of benzyl Peroxide (NEVER helped my acne before I started with the Aspirin mask, but somehow it works in conjunction with the aspirin to keep me completely clear!). I usually only use BP at night or a few times a week because it bleaches all my clothes and that's all I need it.

After applying BP, I pour some regular, non-coated aspirin in a small bowl and sprinkle them with warm water. It only takes a few minutes for them to dissolve, then I add enough water to make a paste that is not too dry.

I cover all the problem areas with the aspirin, just rubbing it on in a thin layer (and I had acne everywhere, my back, arms, shoulders, chest, etc.)

It usually takes about 10 minutes to dry (it flakes off when dry and can be a big mess). When it is dry, I stand in the shower (not running) and rub the excess off. I leave whatever is left on under my clothes rather than washing it completely off. I feel like this helps.

And that is it. Sooooooo cheap and sooooo easy! It has completely stopped my acne that I have had for 14 years! I still will get a few cystic spots during my period on my face (which drives me crazy!), but have recently started using the Aztec Indian Healing Clay again as a mask and it has just about cured me of the cysts (in combination with the aspirin mask). I am a very happy girl and feel totally confident wearing a black strapless tomorrow night to a concert!

So, here are the side effects: It is messy (helps to rub off the excess in the shower and then just rinse it down the drain), It tends to dry my skin so I worry about wrinking and am considering some different moisturizers to help combat this. That's it, no other side effects! SOOOO nice!

Anyway, I know it is not for everyone, but hope it helps someone!
Hmmm, nope I haven't tried the Silkia yet. I've just started using the Purpose moisturizer in the last month along with the aspirin scrub (which as you can tell, I totally swear by lol) and it's made a huge difference in how my skin feels, and it's not breaking me out at all either.. it's just not doing anything whatsoever for my scarring. My entire face is covered in red spots and it's just a very weird texture now. I hate it SO much.

So, the Silkia oil doesn't clog your pores? Where do you get it and how often do you use it?
