First, a pimple should be white, and it should come to a head. Once the whitehead is above the skin, you should get a needle, sanitizing it with hot water and alcohol.
Lance the zit by puncturing the whitehead all the way across, parallel to the skin’s surface. Pull the needle straight up to break the surface. Wash your hands and then squeeze out the contents of your zit. Wrap your fingers in tissue and gently squeeze.
Finally, come back in with salicylic acid to clean and disinfect the area.
