Here are a few question/answers that might be helpful:
Q:
What’s the benefit to doing this over some topical salicylic acid treatment that you don’t have to mix yourself?

A: Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid): decomposes to salicylic acid which increases cell exfoliation and is anti-bacterial

Lemon juice: Citric acid wards off oxidation (like the browning of an apple slice)
Baking soda: neutralizes the acidic lemon juice in the event you would get it into your eyes

Q: How often do you apply this, once a week?
A: 1-2 times a week. (Not recommended for sensitive skin. Might be too drying.)
Q: I could not find un-coated aspirin so I used coated. Will the coating harm my face?
A: Coated aspirin is fine. Just takes longer to dissolve. Un-coated is actually fairly hard to find.
Q: The paste was flaking off my face…is there something I can add to it?
A: A teaspoon of honey or **olive oil** or **aloe vera** will help bind the mixture together.
