Aspirin for acne

Submitted by Shannon

Dissolve 3 aspirin in a teaspoon of water

Then apply the water to your blemishes over night
then wash as usual in the morning.

Asprin=salicylic acid which will shrink acne and also kill the bacteria 

do this at least three times a week.

you can also use it as an all over mask just apply it let it dry for about ten minutes and then rinse.

What do i do if I need to thicken the solution after i mix it? Should I add more aspirin? I donm;t want to use too much but right now my mixture is really watery.
Chemical Burn Comments By: Anon on 2009-03-31
Did this to a small portion to my face and it work miracles but then I tried it on my face a couple of days later and it burned half of my face. It hurt so bad and it was hard to move my mouth. I got worried that it wouldn't heal until it started peeling like a sun burn but putting neosporin on the burn made me break out worse so I wouldn't recommend this.

I have mild acne but recently it made me lose my confidence it just got worse and worse. I have tried topical solutions and am currently on my fourth microderm. However I read that aspirin may b good. I have done it twice now. Leaving the mask on for about half hour and it works. My spots are far less red and not as painful. I am amazed that this could work and would urge anyone to try it. As with anything everyone is differenct but it works for me. I was so sad and was getting upset, having to wear a scarf at work. What I do is crush 4 aspirin onto a plate and had a dash of dermalogica bedtime for breakouts gel. Mix them together so they look like thick paste.Then apply to the area that is inflammed.Leave on for half hour. Then I would rub it off with my fingers ( exfoliates at the same time) Hope you get success like I am. All the best.
