How to Use Toothpaste on Pimples Properly
You must have heard of the arguments out there about the effectiveness of toothpaste in curing pimples. There are two opposite sides who either vote for it or against it. I would not like to take part in the fierce argument here because you will not know the answer until you try it yourself. There are arguments because the results may vary from person to person. But I know you would like not to use it on your pimples until you are absolutely sure about that. So in order to reduce the risks to the least extent, you should surely be able to give positive answers to three questions before you do it.
Do you have to deal with your skin problem immediately?
If you are not sure about the answer to this question, then I would recommend that you should postpone this treatment. That is because you are not suffering acute pains or you can still stand the discomfort that the pimples have caused you. Toothpaste can not get rid of the pimples completely. But it can help alleviate the pain, size and inflammation. So don’t bother treating it this way if your situation is totally under control.
Will your skin respond to the toothpaste positively?
This is a critical question that you need to answer after you have answered yes to the first question. But how would you know if your skin responds to toothpaste well or not before you use it personally? In order to prevent any serious damage to your skin which is usually a worry when the pimple grows on the face, it recommended to the one that has the lowest content of fluoride. Or if you are a person who would like to adventure like me, then you can just try anything available in your washroom out and wash it away immediately when you see that your skin is vulnerable to the effect of the toothpaste.
How to use toothpaste on pimples properly?
There are three systematic steps that need to be taken when it comes to use paste on pimples. The first step is to wash your face or the skin where the pimples are with lukewarm water and baby soap, and then dab your skin dry.
Do it gently to avoid hurting yourself and scraping your skin. The second step is to dab a small amount of toothpaste on the pimple or pimples, covering the top skin, and wait for it to get dry. Normally, you will experience some cool and refreshing feeling. After some short period of time, if you feel burning or painful, then wash it away from your skin with warm water immediately. The third step is to wash the dried toothpaste away and dab dry. I would not recommend wearing it overnight because I did that and would rather not do that again. The skin became dark, which is not something that I had expected. Neither will you.
So ask yourself the three questions before you take the toothpaste as a weapon again your skin condition. Only in this way can you make sure that it works for, not against, you.
