Pour a very small amount of water into your container.
Mix in about four spoonfuls of baking soda; enough to make a pasty consistency.
This is the pasty texture you want to achieve.
Use your finger to apply the paste to your problem areas. For best results, open the pore before application by popping the pimple.
After about an hour or two, the paste should be dry enough to just peel off. While its drying, be sure to minimize movement of the problem area or the mixture can flake off.
NOTE: the mixture may cause some tingling/stinging/tickling sensations. Do not fret, my kittens! It's okay. The solution is sucking out the juices from the zit. If it's a large one, you might feel it.
BONUS: this also works great to relieve bug-bite itch, makes a good weekly face mask, and can help to remove splinters!
