i've heard from a somewhat reliable source that toothpaste on pimples is the way to go. its supposed to remove redness and shrink the zit at the site.
has anyone ever tried this and had awesome results?
The reason toothpaste sometimes works is because it dries out the skin, but you should never use it. It has a lot of acids in it that can actually leave a red mark for a long period of time. I would stick to creams that are made to fight acne.
