Most of the medicine cabinets are full of aspirin, the common medicine for treating headaches, fevers, acne, pain and inflammations. But, these pills have a beauty purpose as well.
The aspirin is really good for many beauty purposes and life hacks too, like everyday tricks. The aspirin is highly underestimated, so check out the alternative uses for it and be surprised.
Firstly, you can use it as a good quality homemade lip scrub. Mix 4 crushed tablets with 2 tsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 vitamin E capsule and heal those peeling and chaffed lips. Aspirin is good for exfoliating because it has a good ingredient that activates for removing dead cells.
Also, it can be used to make a good facial mask treatment, so just crush a few UNCOATED tablets and mix them with warm water or apple cider vinegar and get a pasty mix. Then, apply this paste on clean washed face and remove fine lines and acne.
Bug bites are also healed by this mix of aspirin; because aspirin contains acetylsalicylic acid, it acts as an anti-inflammation agent and soothes the itchy bug bites.
Make a pasty mix by taking few crushed pills and warm water, then apply this on the skin that is bitten by bugs only.
When we talk about ingrown hairs, aspirin again can help. This paste should be put only on those areas of problematic ingrown hairs, but also if the skin is just irritated, you can broaden the paste for application on that area.
If you have dandruff, again take some aspirin. The active ingredient in aspirin is the same as used in special expensive shampoos. Again, mix crushed tablets in the shampoo bottle, shake the bottle and use it as you normally do. If you want it separately, mix aspirin with water and massage on clean scalp for 10 minutes, and rinse off.
Apart from dandruff removal, aspirin is also great for repairing damaged hair from pools and chlorine water. Take 6-8 tablets and put them in warm water and lace this on the hair and scalp afterwards; leave it that way for 15 minutes and then rinse gently.
