I Made It Myself and No One Believed Me, This Mask Helps You Eliminate Wrinkles and Spots.

Making a DIY skin cream with aspirin and lemon can provide various benefits owing to the advantageous properties of these ingredients. Scientifically known as acetylsalicylic acid, aspirin boasts anti-inflammatory properties and serves as an exfoliant, diminishing the visibility of wrinkles, crow’s feet, and blemishes. On the other hand, lemon contains vitamin C and citric acid, contributing to skin brightening and the reduction of dark spots. Nevertheless, exercising caution is crucial when using such homemade remedies, particularly on sensitive skin or in sunlight, as lemon may increase skin sensitivity to UV rays.

Here’s a more comprehensive guide to creating and applying this homemade aspirin and lemon cream:


  • 3 aspirin tablets
  • Juice of 1 lemon


  1. Prepare the aspirin: Crush the aspirin tablets into a fine powder using a mortar and pestle or the back of a spoon.
  2. Mix with Lemon Juice: Squeeze the lemon to extract its juice. Combine the lemon juice with the crushed aspirin until you achieve a consistent paste, ensuring the mixture is smooth and free of lumps.
  3. Application: Before applying the mixture, thoroughly cleanse your face with warm water to open the pores. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
  4. Apply the cream: Use your fingertips to apply the cream to your face, avoiding the eye area. Gently massage the mixture onto your skin in circular motions to enhance absorption.
  5. Leave On: Allow the mixture to sit on your skin for approximately 10 minutes. Due to lemon juice’s potential drying and irritating effects, avoid leaving it on for an extended period of time.
  6. Rinse Off: Rinse the mixture off with cool water to close the pores. Pat your skin dry with a towel.
  7. Moisturize: Follow up with a gentle moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated, as both aspirin and lemon can be drying.


  • Patch Test: Always conduct a patch test on a small skin area before applying the mixture to your entire face, especially if you have sensitive skin.
  • Sun Sensitivity: Lemon juice can increase skin sensitivity to sunlight, heightening the risk of sunburn. Use this cream at night and apply sunscreen during the day.
  • Not for Everyone: Avoid this remedy if you are allergic to aspirin, have cuts or open wounds on your face, or if your skin reacts poorly to acidic substances like lemon juice.

While this homemade cream presents a cost-effective approach to address specific skin concerns, consulting with a dermatologist is advisable for persistent issues or adverse reactions.
