Unnoticed Beauty: DIY Aspirin and Lemon Cream for Wrinkle Reduction and Spot Removal

Despite your diligent efforts, sometimes the effects of a homemade remedy may go unnoticed by others. However, the benefits of combining aspirin and lemon in a homemade skin cream are certainly worth exploring. Aspirin, with its anti-inflammatory and exfoliating properties, can help diminish fine lines and imperfections, while lemon, rich in citric acid and vitamin C, can lighten skin tone and fade dark spots. Here’s how to make and use this DIY cream:


  • 3 aspirin pills
  • Juice from 1 lemon


  1. Crush the aspirin pills into a fine powder using a pestle and mortar or the back of a spoon.
  2. Combine the crushed aspirin with the lemon juice, mixing until a smooth paste forms without any lumps.


  1. Begin by washing your face with warm water to open up the pores, then pat it dry with a clean towel.
  2. Apply the cream to your face using your fingertips, using light circular motions to enhance absorption. Avoid getting the cream in your eyes.
  3. Leave the cream on your skin for about 10 minutes to allow it to work its magic. Due to the potential drying and irritating effects of lemon juice, it’s essential not to leave it on for too long.
  4. Rinse off the cream with cool water and pat your skin dry with a towel to close your pores.
  5. Follow up with a moisturizer to replenish any lost moisture, as both aspirin and lemon can be drying.

Safety Measures:

  • Perform a patch test on a small area of skin before applying the cream all over your face, especially if you have sensitive skin.
  • If you have an aspirin allergy, facial cuts or open wounds, or if your skin reacts negatively to acidic substances like lemon juice, avoid using this cream.
  • Lemon juice can increase skin sensitivity to sunlight, so apply sunscreen during the day and use this cream at night if you have sun-sensitive skin.

Remember, if you experience persistent skin issues or adverse reactions after using this homemade cream, it’s best to consult a dermatologist. While the effects of DIY skincare treatments may not always be immediately noticeable to others, the benefits to your skin’s health and appearance are undeniable.
