I suppose it might help ... aspirin is an anti-inflammatory as well. But I suspect that Advil is more effective than aspirin .... and I find Aleve more effective than Advil.
I'm taking it again this week, and it is DEFINITELY working. I started as soon as the first tiny zits popped up, and 24 hours later they'd all gone down again.
BTW, I take EFAs daily ... they are definitely great for my skin, and I see a huge difference when I'm taking them. But I would still get the PMS pimples if it weren't for Aleve.

This is the 4th ovulation cycle I have tried this and month I only had one small jawline pimple.
Thank you so much for sharing this information.

Don't you love it when something so simple works so well?

Reminder to self: for maximum effectiveness, I have to use Aleve TWICE a day during PMS week.
If I only use it once (at night), I get the tiny zits popping up during the day.
Must remember to take one in the AM as well.

I just feel that the only downside to this is that your body may get de-sensitized from all that "unnecessary" aspirin intake. To the point where it takes more than an Aleve to alleviate a headache. no pun intended.
doesn't mean i'm not going to try this when the chance come around...

I don't see how taking 2 Aleve tablets per day for a few days each month could have such an effect.

Aleve is just Naproxin (sp?) I am sure they sell that in Canada. I used to live in Buffalo, NY so I know for sure they had it in Ontario.

2 per day during PMS still works great for me ....

I decided to pin this topic ... it's too good to lose and I don't always remember to bump it!
