Ibuprofen (Topical) And Acne

Recommended Posts

In the last couple of days I've started doing a new spot treatment. I would usually do the ziit method and it would normally work ok. But last week I felt a huge pimple forming in my nose and I said to myself that in no freakin' way it would erupt. I do the regimen but only once per day because I don't like my face getting red. And the other time of the day I would normally wash my face with my normal clenaser and apply some witchazel or use the moisturizer on its own (depending on how much irritation I have), but when I feel a pimple forming I do the following:

Step 1 : wash your face normally

Optional: use a toner like witchazel or salcylic acid.

Step 2: Puncture an ibuprofen pill and apply on the affected area (wait about 30 mins for your skin to absorb it)

Step 3 : apply a thick layer of bp into the affected area.

I've done this three times applied to different pimples and the swelling has gone and the area doesn't leave a hyperpigmentation. I don't know if this would work on everyone but I certainly reccommend giving it a try.
