Another thread made me remember this and I may have posted before...if so, it's been a few years at least. I take about 3 good ol' cheap aspirin in the palm of my hand. I add a few drops of water to them. Note: you cannot use any of the coated aspirins to do this! After a few seconds, I mush the drops of water into the aspirin and get a very coarse scrub. Then I scrub my face and rinse with water. The aspirin not only exfoliates, it helps clear up acne/blackhead/whiteheads/pimples and will knock down some of the shine on oily skin. I don't have oily skin now but I still use the aspirin. The salicylic acid in aspirin is one of the active ingredients of many acne medications.
