Post Toothpaste the solution?

Hey, i have heard that toothpaste can help acne or just the occasional pimple. I've tried it and left it on for about 30-40 minutes and i've seen a change in the size of the pimple, of course it doesnt get rid of them but i think it makes them look minimal. When I wash it off it kind of burns but nothing to cry about. Has anyone ever tried this?

I have! Toothpaste saved my life... once. It's only worked once for me. So I don't do it regularly.

I personally, wouldnt use that stuff...I have and I regreted it. It makes your zit or spot that you are putting it on, much redder.....and sometimes if you put it on a zit that is still growing, it will make it even more enflammed.

Nope, it's not. In fact, the flouride and whitening agents in toothpaste can actually make acne WORSE. Also, it will burn the skin and leave the skin around the pimple very red, dry, and flaky.

Have you tried Queen Helene Mint Julep mask instead?
