Its a home remedy than I tried once upon a time, my brother to a longer extent, and it never helped much. I heard someone post that it depends on the type of toothpaste you use. As for the right brands... I have no clue.

Good luck!

I've only tried it once or twice with no real results, but I've seen other people post that there's a risk of the toothpaste burning you skin.

It works if you've got a huge pimple, but I wouldn't recommned putting it all over your skin, because it can cause red marks.
