by Ann Mapleridge

If you get razor bumps while shaving a regular household aspirin may be all you need to make them start to go away. Aspirin is a form of salicylic acid, which is one of the very same ingredients expensive skin care product makers put in their lotions and potions to help you treat your skin. With this home remedy you can save your cash and say goodbye to unsightly bumps in just a few minutes.

Items you will need

  • Glycerin
  • Water
  • 2 uncoated aspirin
  • Bowl
  • Cotton Ball
Step 1

Mix together 3 drops of glycerin, 1/4 cup of warm water and 2 uncoated aspirin in a bowl.

Step 2

Stir the mixture until the aspirin completely dissolves in the glycerin and water.

Step 3

Dip your cotton ball in the mixture to moisten it.

Step 4

Apply the cotton ball gently to your razor bumps, allowing the mixture to be absorbed by your skin.

Step 5

Apply lotion or another moisturizer to the area once the aspirin mixture has dried and been completely absorbed into your skin.
