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 has worked for me for years! Comments By: anon on 2007-08-20
I have been doing this for YEARS and it has always worked. My suggestion would be to only use the paste, not the gel. I've never been burned by the paste itslef.

IT REALLY DOES WORK!!!!! Comments By: anon on 2007-09-03
This is going to sound really weird but my brothers friend used the toothpaste and it worked for him! Me and my brother now use it and it worked like a charm!

1.Before bed put the toothpaste on the zit.

2.Put a piece of gauze over the toothpaste and the zit.

3.The next morning take the gauze off.

4. wash the toothpaste off with an acne wash.

Use over until the zit is gone!

Works great Comments By: Moriah on 2007-09-06

serious stuff pleassee use caution Comments By: tomorrows big shot on 2007-09-08
i tried it,.
of course i used crest
and it really did burn my skin,
i mena i FELT burning.

i kept it on for not even 10 seconds,
yeah im a wimp but it hurt so bad.

i have sensitive skin,

it left a horrible red rash on my skin.

but i have mad eit way lighter.

PLEASE, if you try this.
only put in a small section,
like your forehead just on the zit where your hair covers it anyways..
if it leaves a rash DO NOT and i mean DO NOT PUT IT ON ANYMORE.

if you end up with a red rash, immediatley was your face with warm water,

then put some COLD water on a towel and hold it over the rash until it goes away i just attempted this before reading this board....
i still have the damp towel on my face but the rash is getting lighter and keeping it from drying up.

IN THE PROCESS Comments By: Kiley-n-Drew on 2007-09-10
I heard this works and I put it onearlier and washed it off and it looked smaller. I have it on right now almost asleep and it tingles but it feels good... plus, I have a side snack... just kidding I am in the process of using crest whiting plus scope... It tingles but really doesnt burn.. maybe for the first minute but thats it....... Plus... if u want it gone this is the way to go. Also peeps... just a heads up
all the guys will notice and say ewwww u look like an alien or whatever just please peeps DO NOT POP THEM.

seems to do something... Comments By: davey on 2007-09-25

colgate for me :)

What you might have done wrong!! Comments By: Pamela on 2007-09-27
If you wash your face before you put the toothpaste, that might dry your fach so maybe you should take a towel (not to hard) and get any oil (of if your face is Really oily. Hope this helps and i think gel paste dont work.

Toothpaste Dries Spots Fast! Really Works! Comments By: Larraine on 2007-10-01
Just dab a small amount of the white toothpaste, leave it overnight and it reduces the size of the spot. I have a sensitive skin but it worked for me.
trying it for the first time Comments By: darla on 2007-10-05
ok, my friend told me that toothpaste helps zits and i thought it was a trick to make idiots put toothpaste on their face, so today i was looking in the mirror at my sorta big zit like "thats gotta go" and i started wondering about this. so i looked it up on the internet and it said it works! so i put on the most regular non-fancy toothpaste i could find in my bathroom which happened to be crest cavity protection. it only had a sort of good tingley feeling, and i wanted to see if it worked for other people and found this website. everyone said crest was bad and aquafresh was good, so i had it on for and hour and a half, but took it off and looked in the mirror, and it looked and felt way smaller! but i dabbed on a thin layer of aquafresh and ive had it on for 10 minutes. no good tingley feeling :( but ill live. it smells really good. in a couple hours ill repost with the result of auafresh.
works amazingly well Comments By: me on 2007-10-27
i heard about it so i applied a thin layer (really thin) on my whole face. i left it for about 10 mins, then took a shower. it was great. the spots had become noticably smaller and my skin felt amazing. also, i wud recommend giving up smoking, drinking plenty of water and exercising. worked well for me :D
