Toothpaste for acne and zits

Any over the counter toothpaste can be a good remedy for acne and zits. Dab a small amount of paste, just enough to cover the zit. Allow it to dry and then wipe off with luke warm water, then apply again. Do this before bed and you'll will find that the zit has lost it's glow (you'll also smell sweet peppermint dreams!)

It Works Wonders Comments By: Alycia on 2010-11-10
Well I tried it last night and woke up with little pimples on my face! CAUTION: IF YOU NO YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, PLEASE DON'T USE TOOTHPASTE! I don't know how much more I can stress that. Anyways,If you are using the toothpaste face mask, DON"T KEEP IT ON OVERNIGHT! It will dry up the pimple and make it smaller, BUT It could dry up that area!!! Try putting a little at a time to see how it works for you! Also, to keep your face smooth and soft add a moisturizer or lotion and see how it helps! Good luck

Warning: Results my vary! =]

Works like a dream Comments By: Fabgirl on 2010-11-19
It works only with any white Toothpaste, best results with Colgate Total. First soak cotton wool in warm salt water and place in the zit for 3 minutes, then pop the zit gently using tissue to get the pus out, then put honey on it for 15 minutes. Rinse then put a small amount if toothpaste only on the zit. Leave overnight. Exfoliate your face and apply alot of moisturizer. Repeat and the zit will be gone.

Toothpaste Works Fine for Me Comments By: Gentri on 2010-12-06
I just put enough toothpaste on to cover the zit after washing my face good and go to sleep with it on. The first few minutes it really stings, but when the toothpaste is dry is doesn't burn at all. I did notice that certain kinds do sting more than others at first, but they all have the same effect. When I wake up it's usually not completely gone, but it's hardly visible and after two nights, it's gone.
 
Color of your skin Comments By: Bill MCdougal on 2010-12-14
If your black the dark spots that are left behind after "burning" the pimple off just blends with your skin

Bad Idea.. Comments By: Mia on 2010-12-21
I have normal skin, not oily but not dry and I put it on for about 10 minutes and it burned SO BAD. If it works for you, GREAT. But for me it burned and my face was a little red. It causes irritation.
But that's just what works for me.
But if you have normal skin, DON'T use. Or at least don't use Colgate Total. (That's what I used.)

Works in moderation. Comments By: brandon on 2011-01-03
Toothe paste does in fact work, but you can't put too much of it on there.. I put a little bit of toothe paste on a zit one night and the next day it was smaller... And i was going to see a girl the next day so i decided since it worked i would slather my whole face in it to make sure i was completely pimple free.... this is a bad idea lol i got up the next morning with what felt like a 1st degree burn. The toothe paste takes all the moisture out of your face so do not slather it on there.. just use a little bit on the spot

Hello all. Yes it is true, toothpaste can help clear up acne. Please keep in mind that you want to use a white toothpaste. Please do not use toothpaste a whitening toothpaste. These whitening toothpastes have agents in them that burn skin and cause irration. Try a plain white toothpaste and it should do the trick. However, this is not recommended for individuals with sensitive skin...you should see a professional.
