The benefits of aspirin far exceed temporary relief from fever, aches, and pains. Most people know that it can protect you from a heart attack or stroke, if taken properly. Research suggests that it can reduce the risk of some cancers and Alzheimer’s disease. But aspirin has many other potential health, beauty, and personal benefits. Discover some of the amazing things that bottle in your medicine cabinet can do for you.
Use as garden aid
Aspirin is not only a first-aid essential for you, but for your garden as well. Some gardeners grind it up for use as a rooting agent, or mix it with water to treat fungus conditions in the soil. But be careful when using aspirin around plants; too much of it can cause burns or other damage to your greenery. When treating soil, the typical dosage should be a half or a full aspirin tablet in 1 quart (1 liter) water.
Remove egg stains from clothes
Did you drop some raw egg on your clothing while cooking or eating? First, scrape off as much of the egg as you can, and then try to sponge out the rest with lukewarm water. Don’t use hot water — it will set the egg. If that doesn’t completely remove the stain, mix water and cream of tartar into a paste and add a crushed aspirin. Spread the paste on the stain and leave it for 30 minutes. Rinse well in warm water and the egg will be gone.
Aspirin Face Pack for Acne-prone Dry Skin:
If you think that only oily skinned people have acne and pimples, then you must think twice. Dry skin people also suffer from regular acne and breakouts. Aspirin – Honey face pack will not only moisturize your skin, but also cure acne at the same time.
Honey is a natural humectant, which moistures and nourishes the skin. Due to its anti-bacterial properties, it prevents the formation of acne, reduces breakouts and heals the skin
Aspirin Face Pack for Sun Damaged Skin:
In this face pack, I used curd which is known for its healing properties and curing sunburn. Lemon juice minimizes the sun damage and slows down the oxidation process of free radicals on the skin. Both the ingredients lighten and smooths the uneven skin tone. Aspirin acts as a chemical peel which increases the cell exfoliation.
- Into the paste of 5-6 aspirins, add 1 teaspoon of curd and lemon juice.
- Mix well to form a pack by adding few drops of olive oil.
- Apply this pack over the affected area and keep for 20 minutes.
- Rinse off the pack with cool water. For best results, use this pack twice a week.
