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!)

Wow... toothpaste DOES work. Comments By: Lyn on 2008-04-24
I put toothpaste(white) on my pimple in the morning for a whole day and washed it off the next morning. That pimple was GONE. Beware if you put toothpaste on a popped pimple/zit, you will be left with a black mark on that area. Again..
DO NOT PUT TOOTHPASTE ON A POPPED PIMPLE/ZIT! Oh ya, leaving toothpaste on over night will NOT get you a black hole in your skin.. geez thats IMPOSSIBLE,
I wonder what idiot said that.

It works! Comments By: Sara on 2008-04-27
I use toothpaste on my zits, but i put a thin layer ALL over my face, wait 10 minutes, and wash it off with warm water. It will make your face burn, but it works. It may turn your face red, but it will only last for a few minutes. If you tend to have dry skin, only do it every few days. Moisturize after you rinse it off.

The biggest mistake of your life Comments By: Anon on 2008-05-10
unless you want to die in shame walking around looking like a loser with a burnt/blistered face.. Then you can do this. I left a blob ony pimple overnight and this morning much to my horror I had an angry dark red splotch staring at me.. My party is this coming Friday and now all I can do is hope and pray that the mark goes away.. Any suggestions how I can speeden up this process??? I am no one to tell you wat to do but please rily think 10 times before doing this... No amount of crying can reverse the burn if it occurs.. Atleast try it on an unobtrusive part of your face first.. And definitely- DO NOT LEAVE IT OVERNIGHT!!!
I wish you success in getting rid of those nasty zits.. And I'd rily appreciate some advice on how to get rid of my burn asap. Thanks!!!

So Comments By: Me on 2008-05-18
I was completely shocked when some one told me they put toothpaste on their face for acne so i was like i guess ill try it i have pretty healthy skin just an occasional zit here or there so tonights my second night using it im not sure if i noticed any thing the first time i used it but i like how it feels i use acne free face wash as often as i remember which works but i found the best solution is to avoid stressful situation thats the best cure. But hey try it out if it feels uncomfortable wash it off simple as that.
LOL ? Comments By: JJ on 2008-05-19
I put it on my neck for about 6 minutes and then when I took it off I had a white dot puffing out of my skin. BUT THEN it feels refreshing ;). I don't really know if you should try it or not. I used crest =\. DON'T USE CREST!

crest ftw Comments By: xmaddiehatesmeat on 2008-06-30
i don't know. i personally like the burn. it reminds me that my zits are getting terminated. like arnold. the mint kind works the best and it makes me smell gooddddd. i guess my skin isn't sensitive, because i don't get the physical burns that you guys are talking about. oh well. i like this idea.
works but not on popped zits Comments By: Anon on 2008-07-02
Definitely works on most zits. however for the really serious ones that are really hard to pop and you pop it do NOT put toothpaste on it. you get a big white lump there. takes days to clear up. but for the ones where they like pop really really really easily <-- more common you can put toothpaste on. anywyas yeah that was kind of graphic and pretty gross. but just apply to zits, dont put it on your whole face (unless you have a lot of acne).
