Just plain ignoring it works well, and is free, too. Smiley

White glue is made out of PVA and some other stuff.

I, too, join the ranks of crafters who find it fun to pop zits, peel sunburnt skin, and peel glue off their hands.  As soon as I started reading the first post, I remembered the feel of peeling skin off my hand and wondered if I was one of the only ones who did that... after reading through 14 pages of confessions, I feel better about my secret school habits! :p

One thing I always did enjoy was peeling hardened glue off solid surfaces, just to watch the colour of the glue change to light as it peeled off.  I used to cover the top of my pencil case (a 'Spacemaker' brand, it had little round bumps all over the top of it that made for interesting textures) and then peel the glue off. 

There were also the white-out fingernails... though we got into some big trouble for those!

I'm not sure if this skin-care remedy will work for my skin, but it's worth a shot.  I've got some face-mask-peely stuff already, but it's got the consistency of jam and feels weird to put it on my face; plus it takes waay too long to dry!

Great job on the posting. Smiley Even if it's a total flop, it's still an entertaining method and seems to work for some.

I heard that you can also use a bobby pin



I just tried this and it totally worked! I steamed open my pores, then went to work on those little suckers. Now, I'm blackhead free!
Note: do not do this before going out. My face got all red.

To use the bobby pin method
1. Sterilize a bobby pin with rubbing alcohol
2. Steam open your pores
3. Drag the loop at the end of the bobby pin over blocked pores or blackheads. You might have to push kinda hard. If there's something in the pore, it'll squoosh out.
4. Use a tissue to wipe the yucky stuff from inside the little bend
5. Repeat where necessary, et voila! You're done!

I just put the glue on my nose, so we'll see. I'm gonna kill someone if it makes me look like Rudolph after taking it off. lol

I hope it works, because I have serious blackhead problems...

I'll update how did it go.

EDIT: Well it didn't do much for me Undecided Maybe my blackheads are too deep?  Huh But the skin on and around my nose is definitely smoother  Wink (and hairless, haha)
