Aspirin for acne-prone skin

Aspirin has been around for a long time and its health benefits are wide and varied. Aspirin, or acetylsalicylic acid is a salicylate drug, often used as an analgesic to relieve minor aches and pains, as an antipyretic to reduce fever, and as an anti-inflammatory medication. Aspirin’s greatest benefit is reducing cardiovascular events including heart attacks and strokes.
But aspirin is also remarkable for your skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties, capability of sloughing off dead skin cells thus preventing the clogging of pores makes it a terrific product in the treatment of acne and other skin inflammations.
