Skin Care Tip: Toothpaste for acne

submitted by Rebekah B, Philadelphia, PA usa

Tip description / details:
Sometimes before bed I apply a dab of toothpaste to an emerging pimple - this seems to stunt its development overnight, which is when I find that most pimples develop into zits. This should be done to emerging pimples - does not work as well on whiteheads.

I've tried this with a variety of toothpastes - most typical drugstore brands. Colgate, crest, etc.

How to prepare:

How to use:

Results (observed by submitter):
This has been very effective - I wake up with fewer whiteheads! I think that I would recommend this to almost anybody. I have a lot of acne and I find that if I apply toothpaste to the red emerging pimples they hardly develop into larger lesions. This has been much more effective for me than drugstore antiacne remedies, even expensive ones!

Costs involved:
