Thrifty Thursdays

One of the most expensive things about being a woman is our beauty products. The creams, lotions, makeup….it never ends.  I’ve got a great mask that I tried and loved. The best part is you can make it from things in your home.  This mask is made with aspirin, lemon juice and baking soda.


  1. Mash up about 10 non coated aspirin (use the cheap stuff)
  2. Add lemon juice until you get a paste
  3. Apply to the mask to the face and let sit for 10 mins
  4. Remove the mask by dipping a cotton ball in in baking soda and water.


The aspirin acts like acetylsalicylic acid and exfoliates the skin while the lemon juice has vitamin C and repairs the skin.  It also wards off oxidation just like when you put lemon juice on apples to prevent them from turning brown. The baking soda neutralizes the lemon juice.

Use this treatment 1-2 times ta week for great looking skin.

If the mask feels too drying, just add a teaspoon of honey to the mixture.
