Aspirin contains salicylic acid, a substance which exfoliates and soothes the skin, especially after shaving. Let’s see how you use it.
After shaving irritation appear mostly in sensitive areas like the axilla or inguinal area. You can use aspirin to calm and relive irritation at home.
Crush one or two aspirins and dissolve them in a cup with a quarter part water. Add a few drops of glycerine, so this composition will have a thicker consistency which will not leak. Soak a cotton pad in this solution and apply on the affected waxed or shaved area. Leave it to enter the skin, and then use a moisturizing cream.
Salicylic acid is very good for your skin and is found in many cosmetics. Removes dead skin cells, releases the pores and kills bacteria that attack the hair follicle. Thus, reduces redness and inflammation. Before you use this lotion, talk to your doctor and make sure you’re not allergic to this substance.
