Need to reduce inflammation

Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone know how I could reduce inflammation. My problem now is not acne, althought it is still there, it isn't particularly bad - except when you see the inflammation! I don't seem to get just normal spots, they seem to be very inflamed and really stand out a lot! Is there anything I can do to get rid of this inflammation? I'm thinking about try Aspirin mask, but I don't think you can buy those big bottles in the U.K, I'll have a look later on.

Thanks

For aspirin in the UK, pop on down to 'Superdrug' and get some of their cheap ones in the white and yellow boxes. Make sure they're not the water soluble ones, they don't work nearly as well.

I'd recommend Borage Oil and/or Evening Primrose Oil. I take Borage Oil and it is stated to be very beneficial to the skin due to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Omega 3 fatty acids are also sound choices...
