Aspirin mask: With it Help Your Acne?

There are many natural remedies out there are said to cure acne and keep it away for good. Some of natural remedies include cucumbers, honey, lemon juice, and an aspirin mask. All of these ingredients can be found in either your pantry or your medicine cabinet. These ingredients are also very inexpensive compared to the many acne systems out there that claim to fight and cure acne. Some systems can run anywhere from $19.95-$200 depending on what system you think will work for your skin type. Everyone’s skin type is different, one acne product may not work on every skin type; however, with these natural remedies, they work on almost all skin types.

I have suffered from acne since middle school; it went from mild to severe after I turned 13. But since then, I have used every product that you can think of and they either made my acne worse or gave me horrible dry skin, but still I tried. If you have or currently suffer from acne, then you have probably tried everything. I am that person who has tried everything both prescribed and over the counter. I have tried everything from Nature’s Cure, Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, Proactiv, Skin ID, Murad, Olay, and finally Clearasil. There comes a time when people actually reach their breaking point and try other natural ingredients for their skin, and depending on how often they are used, they actually work. The aspirin mask, however, did not work very well on my acne, but did work on pre-existing scars. It only worked sometimes and only on pimples that have been raptured. Although it was extremely inexpensive at about $5.00 for a bottle, it was not something that worked entirely well for me, at least when it came to clearing up my pimples. I found other natural to work better for me.

Aspirin is something that we take orally to reduce internal inflammation, which then relieves us of aches, swelling, and other pains. And because acne is not something that is internal, aspirin does not have the same effect when used outside of the body. Aspirin has antibacterial properties in it which are supposed to fight pimples and clear the complexion. The aspirin mask is supposed to get rid of red marks that mar the skin and softening the skin. The results from the aspirin mask are very temporary unlike other natural acne remedies. The aspirin mask is supposed to get rid of oil that clogs the pores and therefore causing pimples. Aspirin has salicylic acid in it which is an anti-inflammatory. Because salicylic acid is present in aspirin, it is very highly recommended that sunscreen be worn before going out doors.

Instead of spending a fortune on expensive skin care products that may not even work, try something natural that you can get right out of your pantry. Aspirin is nature’s gift to you, so why not give it a try; you have nothing to lose but your acne. I personally have not had such a great running using an aspirin mask, but my skin type is different from other individuals. It dried out my skin a bit and did nothing for my flare-ups. Please be careful when using aspirin in case you may be allergic.

About Tricia M

I know about acne because I have suffered from it since I was a teenager. Acne made people ridicule me and practically ruined my life. I have tried just about every single acne medication out there. From Clean&Clear, to Neutrogina, to Strident, to Skin ID, to Murad, to Proactiv. I also tried eating healthier and washing my face three times a day, which only irritated it more and produced more acne. My dermatologist finally put me on some birth control to try and clear it. It worked and I only get a few break outs here and there. I usually treat it with some baking soda and olive oil. Fighting acne can become a losing battle, especially for those who do not know all the different types of remedies are available. There are a number of different acne medications formulated today for people who have acne. The names will vary by brand, effects, and ingredients. Everyone will know what is right for them when they try the different products. For more severe conditions, contacting a dermatoligist is very highly recommended.
