I don't have severe acne, but just the occasional pimple. I'll tell you what I do.

Step 1
Grind up 4 aspirin, and 1 vitamin C pill (or use lemon juice later)

Step 2
Add a couple drops of water until you have a real thick paste. (Or use lemon juice) Add 1 - 2 drops of ammonia (windex, glass cleaner, etc)
Mix well! The aspirin and juice/citric acid will form salycitic acid.

It needs to be thickened... Add a tiny amount of neosporin, hemmorhoid ointment/cream (anti-inflammatory, gets rid of redness) and toothpaste (very drying, good for whiteheads) you should end up with a paste that sticks to the skin very well.

Put a small amount on the zit- Moisten your finger with some water, and you'll be able to smooth it on the skin better. Be prepared- It might burn a tiny bit. (I'm a 28 year old man and it burns a little...)

Let it dry on the skin. When it's dry enough that it falls off, wash with spearmint hand soap and reapply.

Sounds like something that either burns your skin to hell, physically scars you for life, or releases deadly, toxic fumes when mixed together. NOT TRYING THIS!
