Crush up some aspirins, Mix well with lukewarm water until it forms a chunky paste and place it onto the problem areas for five to ten minutes. And wash off again with warm warter. One of the ingredients that helps remove the dead skin cells and kills bacteria is salicylic acid. And it also helps clean out the pores as well.
