painkillers 4 acne?!

hey, i have heard that if you make a paste with water and a crushed advil pill and put it on ur pimple it would make it better. i was wondering 2 things:

1) could i use ibuprofin for it instead cause i dont have advil and ibuprofin is very close to advil.

2)how does it accually work/help the acne?

I have that same question too and am still waiting for an answer. Will crushed Acetaminophen work with water on a zit?

An aspirin mask is usually used as it has salicylic acid in it; that's exfoliating and the reason most people use an aspirin mask.

Ibuprofen would serve better taken internally though some people have mentioned success with anti-inflammation when applying a topical ibuprofen gel. Don't take anything internally or apply externally if you've ever had a reaction to it.
