hmm...I know that taking aspirin will help with the inflammation of pimples but never heard about it being applied to the skin. I guess its worth a try.

Hi
Our daughter used Witch Hazel, its an astringent you can buy at Walmart. Her great grandmother told her about this "ancient" secret, which seemed to keep her oily skin cleared up.

She also used colgate toothpaste on a "zit" and overnight it was 90% healed.

Drink at least 2 liters of water a day for great skin!

Hope this helps!

I buy cheap aspirin (cheaper way to get BHA than the BHA gel I used to buy) and crush them with mortar or under a rolling pin into a fine powder to gring away the coating that keeps them from breaking down. Then I mix with honey which is a natural astringent and healing salve. I rub on and leave for about 10 mins or whenever I feel sticky too long and then I get in the shower and let the hot steam open my facial pores for about 5 mins before removing. Works great and the honey keeps the aspirin from drying me out too much.
