I have friends that swear by the toothpaste method. With the additional use of a good acne scrub/method.
A girl I work with (one of my friends who swears by it) came in to work a couple hours in the morning, went home, used the tooth paste, came back a few hours later and the swelling of her pimples had gone drastically!
I'm trying it for the first time tonight, but after having the aquafresh on for a few minutes and then washing it off my face ALREADY looks much clearer. and I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin. I tried using proactiv and that chemically burned my skin. Please, never use.
Get some good neutrogena oil free acne scrub and a tube of tooth paste : )
