A TikTok User Says Aspirin Face Masks Got Rid of Her Acne—But How Safe Is This? - Health.com

Now there's a new TikTok trend you need to know about: Using an aspirin face mask to get rid of acne.

The advice comes from TikTok user Mallory Le (username @tellyourdogisayhello), as she shows a video of herself making and using the mask.

In the video, Le shows herself making the mask by taking two uncoated aspirin tablets and dissolving them with some water.

The video's gotten 1.3 million views and 84.7 thousand likes on TikTok after being on the site for only two days—but the popularity of the trick has us wondering: Is it safe to use an aspirin face mask for acne.

Going further, aspirin contains acetylsalicylic acid, a synthetic derivative of salicylic acid, which is a popular topical medication for acne. “It is created by a chemical reaction between salicylic acid and acetic acid,” she explains.

However, it is important to note that aspirin or acetylsalicylic acid are not the same as salicylic acid, and vice versa.

And while the acetylsalicylic acid can reduce inflammation, it shouldn't be used on your face.

“The aspirin is not treating the acne, it is merely treating the inflammation response.

Whiteheads and blackheads, for example, are often treated via a retinoid or benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid, or salicylic acid
