Toothpaste for pimples

Submitted by marylou q

Use toothpaste to get rid of zits or pimples apply a little over night or if you already took your bath apply to the pimple.

Please people, what is with all of the miss-spelled words and abbreviations? No slang or jargon is to be written on websites!

Many of you do not follow PRECISE DIRECTIONS!

  1. Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, or water.
     
  2. Make sure you have PASTE not GEL. Apply to the acne and surrounding areas.
     
  3. Leave the treatment on for 30-60 minutes depending on your skin type.(if you feel severe burning STOP! and DO NOT leave in over night!)
     
  4. Wash your face with lukewarm water. Make sure that you remove all traces of acne for if you miss some it could burn your skin!
     
  5. Pat your skin dry. DO NOT RUB!!!
     
  6. Get a moisturizer and apply in a circular or left-to-right motion to your ENTIRE face.
     
  7. Make sure you get at least 7-8 hours of sleep and in the morning, your acne will be reduced (NOT CURED!)

Good Luck! :D

Not badd Comments By: Victoriaaaa on 2010-07-17
Okay. I have this HUGE zit right under my nose, you can see from like really far away, its gross.
I've had it on for about 30 minutes now, and it burns a little. But I looked in the mirror and its not some huge big fat THING anymore. Thank gosh.
It was nastyyy. Anyways Im going to take it off in like 5 minutes and I'll review again.

Nothing really happened..
I took it off and it was smaller, barely, but still.

 
So you got burned from toothpaste? Comments By: Anon on 2010-07-19
After you take off toothpaste mask and the pimple is popped or the toothpaste burned or scabbed the skin, the pimple is no longer a pimple but an open wound, and what do we put on open wounds? Neosporin!! With a q-tip apply neosporian to the area, do NOT apply anywhere that isn't infected because neosporin is a greasy healer and may break out other areas of your face. Also, the greasy healing power of neosporin is perfect for the burns or scabs left from the toothpaste!

Toothpaste works perfectly fine! The buring means it's killing bacteria which is a GOOD thing...many people i know use it. This seems to be the only solution i can use at this point.

My Result Comments By: StDaRa on 2010-07-28
Well, I have about one big clump of pimples on my left cheek that's about 5 big red ones and small ones on my forehead and right cheek & I decided to try the toothpaste method. I put on some colgate toothpaste about 40 min back & removed about 10 min ago. Only kept it for 30 min & I have oily skin which is not sensitive. It burned for about 10 min & stopped soon after. When I went to remove it, my acne was slightly less red and slightly smaller. I was expecting the pimpled to get worse, but luckily, it did not :) It burned after I took it off and went to get me an egg. I separated the egg white from the egg yolk and threw away the yolk. I then got the egg white and put it on my face for about 10 minutes. It cooled down my face from the burn which was good. Well, I rinsed it off with cold water and my skin felt good, but the acne was still the same. It's your choice if you want to try it and for hor how long. It made no difference to me so I'm just going to use it to clean my teeth. I recommend trying Hydrogen Peroxide, it worked wonders for me the first week. It would've probably worked better if I didn't use it continuously as it said on the page I saw it on. Only rinse your face with warm water, then soak a cotten ball or q-tip with hydrogen peroxide and place on the only the acne. It will sting a bit and it'll seem as though you got whiteheads, but that's just the HP working on your skin. You can leave it on or wash it off after 30 min, your choice. That's about it & I hope I helped.
 
Read the Directions Comments By: Kylee on 2010-08-08
Those of you who said it made it worse, you left it on overnight, and he/she specifically says to rinse it off in 30-60 minutes, and not to leave it on overnight.

I haven't tried this, but I'm kind of excited to now (;

 
It burns!!! Comments By: braelyn on 2010-08-25
Ok so when i have a pimple i put a dab of toothpaste over it and it works fine.. but now i tried the toothpaste facial mask and it made my skin burn and when i took it off cause of the burning it was all red.. so i dont think you should try it unless you know for sure you dont have sesitive skin. :(

Toothpaste on pimples - Stannous Fluoride Comments By: thediesel1976 on 2010-09-16
I have a friend that is microbioligst with a Health Care company. She informed me that the active ingredient that has very good anti-microbial properties is Stannous Fluoride. This is the active ingredient found in some toothpastes. If you have a pimple, putting toothpaste on it that contains Stannous Fluoride should work.

OMG Comments By: Amber on 2010-09-26
It worked for me, I have clear pimple free skin. If it didnt work for u it is probably because:
- Ur skin may react differnetly to everyone elses
- DO NOT LEAVE IT ON OVER NITE!
IF it doesnt work too bad look for another way
