You guessed it. Aspirin saves the day again for the DIY’ers.
First things first. Nothing will help if you continue to pick them. Picking only makes things worse! Here is what you can do to help:
Aspirin (I linked you to the bulk bottle to cut cost per treatment. At CVS.com they ship FREE with $49 purchase) comes from the same source as salicylic acid which is a great chemical exfoliant. Keratosis Pilaris (those little chicken skin bumps on the back of your arms and thighs) need to be exfoliated. Loofas sometimes just aren’t enough. Aspirin can be greatly reduce the bumps by crushing several tablets up and making a paste with water. Scrub scrub scrub! Let the medicine do its thing, and rinse clean.
If you want a quicker cleaner version of this treatment, get Image Skin Care Clear Cell Salicylic Clarifying Pads and simply wipe them down every night. I LOVE THESE THINGS. *you can also use these to spot treat pimples, or on the whole face for acne prone skin to prevent breakouts. **cut the pads in half and it lasts longer!
