You're not going to get rid of the mark, but you can reduce its size.

First of all DO NOT USE TOOTHPASTE. There are ingredients in it not meant for your skin, and the only reason it works is because of the alcohol and/or baking soda in it. So just use alcohol and/or baking soda.

If it has formed a head (the white spot) you can drain it by poking it with a sterilized sewing needle and gently squeezing it from below to get the pus out. If blood starts coming out, stop, because you've gotten all the pus out. Clean the spot and surrounding skin with an alcohol pad, clean the needle, and you're done.

as in baking soda with water?

Put a little baking soda in a cup and dripping rubbing alcohol into it to form a paste. Mix, pat on the blemish, and leave for a few minutes - maybe 10, but not until it dries. Then wash your face in plain water and put a good hypoallergenic lotion on your face to moisturize, and sleep.

You need to go get an overnight pimple reducing cream such as Zapzyt, Clean & Clear, or Burt's Bees. This cream should contain 10% Benzoyl peroxide, and will reduce your pimple over night. Don't touch the zit!

Gently rub some salt water on it, rinse and then put a little bit of alcohol on it. Let it dry. If you have aspirin in the house, mix one pill with a few drop of water, and put the aspirin paste on your pimple. This works well to reduce the size and redness.

you can't get rid of a zit over night. You could pop the white tip off but don't squeeze the rest unless you want it to get real red, and you could apply a little make up to hide it

Take w washcloth, soak it in warm water. Leave in on your face. On 15 minutes, off 5. It will reduce redness and swelling. Don't pop it, peel your skin like you mentioned, or squeeze from both sides. If it does turn white and come to a head, you can push from one side to drain it.
