How to effectively use Aspirin to get rid of acne on the skin.

1 min


Did you know that aspirin is more than just a painkiller? Well, asides from being a highly effective painkiller, it can also help you get rid of acne on the skin.

Aspirin contains an active ingredient called acetylsalicylic acid, an ingredient that is related to the anti-acne ingredient, salicylic acid. This salicylic acid is what helps combat acne by getting rid of excess oil and dead skin cells which are one of the numerous causes of acne. As a result, not only does it clear acne, but it also stops new ones from popping up.

It is also an anti-inflammatory drug which makes it just what you need to handle your acne problems. Simply applying a paste made from aspirin powder on your face can reduce acne swelling, scars, and redness on your face. Although, since it is anti-inflammatory, it might not work on blackheads and whiteheads.

To use, crush aspirin into a powder and mix with warm water to form a paste. Apply the paste on your acne to reduce swelling or the whole face as a mask. Wash off after about 10 to 15 minutes and apply your usual moisturizer.

And there you have it, ladies, an easy to make and readily available acne treatment.
