Aspirin is commonly used to treat pain, ache, and fever. However, these are not the only uses aspirin has to offer. Namely, it’s known to reduce the risk of cancer and Alzheimer’s and it can also prevent heart attacks. Aspirin has numerous other benefits for the skin. This is because aspirin contains salicylic acid and it can treat acne, blemishes, surplus oil, and exfoliate dead skin cells. Aspirin is also known to lower swelling and redness and to alleviate rosacea symptoms and itching. Moreover, it can make the skin younger by lowering the occurrence of wrinkles.
