How To Get Rid Of Keratosis Pilaris With An Aspirin Mask

How To Get Rid Of Keratosis Pilaris With An Aspirin MaskWhile there are many ways to treat keratosis pilaris (KP), not every method works for people afflicted with this skin condition. It is no exaggeration to say that persistence is needed to find one or more treatments that provide relief for the KP sufferer.

One of the more known ways many afflicted with keratosis pilaris have had success with is exfoliation. This technique removes keratin-filled dead skin cells from the outermost surface of the skin, allowing it to feel fresher and smoother.

What Is An Aspirin Mask?

While there are several ways to exfoliate, one inexpensive keratosis pilaris home treatment not commonly known is what is known as an “aspirin mask.”

Aspirin is effective for keratosis pilaris because it contains salicylic acid, which helps to slough off dead skin cells and smooth the skin. Additionally, aspirin has anti-inflammatory properties that heal the skin and prevent it from causing itchiness and irritation.

How To Make An Aspirin Mask

How to get rid of keratosis pilaris with an aspirin mask only involves a few simple steps. There are two possible preparation methods, both of which work equally well:

Method 1
  1. Place 10 to 12 aspirin in a bowl
  2. Crush the aspirin into a fine powder using a large spoon
  3. Add two to three tablespoons of water to create a paste
Method 2
  1. Place 10 to 12 aspirin in a bowl
  2. Add warm water to cover the pills so that they dissolve and create a paste

Next, apply the paste to the affected areas using your fingers or a cotton ball.

Finally, rinse the mask off with warm water after 10 to 15 minutes (some people apply the mask before taking a shower).

How To Get Rid Of Keratosis Pilaris With Exfoliation

For long-lasting results, be sure to exfoliate your skin every day to remove the dead skin cells, whether with aspirin masks or other exfoliants like dry-skin brushing and sugar scrubs. Failing to maintain this regimen may result in an increase of KP bumps.
