I just wanted a thread with pus in the title.

I'm mostly hoping mixmaster_mo will post those recipes for opening up the pores on your face. They involved boiling water and other things that smell nice. mo, could you, please?

I was really hoping for something like calcuhater's giant pussing bug bite.

I was curious about the steaming pore cleanser things as well. But how in the world do you do them without scalding your face off?

I do not have pimples, but I do have blackheads around the base of my nose. A facial is great for taking care of this, but since I don't have a great aesthetician here, I have found that those little adhesive strips to be great for extracting those pesky blackheads.

I take a nice hot shower, then stick this little strip around the sides of my nose, wait five minutes, then tear it off. It's like magic!

If your skin is delicate, then this might not work for you, but I like it a lot.

Quagga, what strips are you using? The only ones I've ever looked at are made by companies that test on animals. If you're finding some vegan ones in Chico I'd love to find out where you got them!

I just get some no-name strips for $0.99 for a pack of 3 from the Grocery Outlet. They're not P&G, so I'm not too worried about the animal-testing part, but if you're majorly concerned, I suppose you can do some research. It's basically like gentle scotch tape for your face.

eta: fixed typo.

I love stories like that. The more pus, the better.
I'm gross.

I'd love to get those recipes again too.

Since reading the last thread I've started washing my face with warm water and rinsing with cold water, to open and close my pores. I haven't broken out nearly as much since I started that.

I would do some research before I started messing with my skin because pore size can be determined by your genetics. Keep your skin clean and try a good exfoliator. You can break the capillaries in your face really easily. /killjoy.

It's been way too long since I've seen anything that could be described as a pus volcano.

At first glance I read this as "involved boiling water and things like mice..."
