Yep, That’s right, Aspirin.
I haven’t taken aspirin for a headache, and I’m not sure why we have it on hand, but I was up Googling what “home remedies” to try for the crop of zits that has taken over the right side of my chin. Seriously, 10 zits.
So I crushed up an aspirin with the back of a spoon(I felt so Sid and Nancy) and made a paste. I put the paste on that family of zits and let it dry.
I rubbed it a little for gentle exfoliation to remove it and then…….
…..It was as if the pimple fairy came and just sucked all the yuck out of those Pimpletons and told them to move the hell outta town. GONE. Immediate gratification. Sayonara.
I did a little more reading, and seems you should only reserve this method for emergencies, because, transdermally, you could “take” a little too much aspirin. But we’re not talking about chronic acne, we are talking about that “morning-of-the-wedding-oh-shit-I-have-a-zit” zit.
Don’t crush 10 aspirin and put it all over your face like a mask, you junkie.
Spot treat a zit and walk away. It’s MIRACULOUS.<—I apologize for the caps, but it’s that good.
Now go wash your face, put down those french fries, and go to bed.
