Aspirin contains beta hydroxy acid, exfoliates dead skin cells, dramatically reduces inflammation and reduces redness. Uncoated aspirin from walgreens, CVS, even the Dollar Store will work. Crush the aspirin with a spoon or dissolve 2-5 tablets in a few drops of water to make a paste. Apply with a q-tip, fingers or brush and leave on 5-20 minutes or overnight. First time users should start with a lower time to prevent irritation. Do not sleep with a full mask on your face, just spot treat. It will dry and powder off the skin, which is normal. Expect to have that powder in bed and on your pillowcase, but wake up to a dramatic decrease in cysts and inflamed pimples.
*Do not mix with lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, ect. These ingredients are too acidic for topical application and not stabalized for skin application.
