Homemade Skin Care Recipe: Aspirin Salicylic Acid Scrub

submitted by Linda Marrder, Houston, TX 77006

Tip description / details:
Aspirin is a form of salicylic acid which is used in many skin clearing and exfoliating products. What it does really well is clear pores.

Plain uncoated aspirin. Use the cheapest store brand plain, uncoated or microcoated, aspirin in jumbo economy bottles.

How to prepare:
Dissolve half dozen or more in a small cup with enough water to cover them.

How to use:
Then apply to skin and use as a gentle scrub in the shower several times per week. I do my whole upper body and parts of my face.

Results (observed by submitter):
Clears pores, eliminates blackheads and greatly reduces acne. And makes your skin really soft and smooth. Note that it can be drying and it seems to aggravate my Rosecea a little so I rarely use it on my cheeks. I use it nearly everyday on my upper body, and several times per week on the problem areas on my face: nose, forehead and jawline.

Costs involved:
