Toothpaste on Pimples? Think Twice About It

Toothpaste on Pimples? Think Twice About It

Putting toothpaste on pimples gets a lot of hype today as one of the best acne remedies…

But does it work?

In certain instances it does-but its’ NOT something you use to much. I understand why people want to use it–it’s free–and it’s something everyone has in their home.

But it’s extremely HARSH

But in many instances it causes ski irritation–and can sometimes make your acne WORSE. And remember-with all the brands out there it’s just impossible to say if your brand will work for not-because MOST do not.

If you do decide to use it, make sure to leave it on no more than 30 minutes before washing off. You should DEFINITELY not keep it on all night long like most recommend.


This is a harsh and often times ineffective remedy… and most brands use very unnatural ingredients. The bottom line-I would recommend you avoid putting toothpaste on pimples.

So how SHOULD you do to get rid of acne? Here are 3 ways to get rid of it in 3 days:

#1) Don’t eat at night

This just bogs down the system, and the body wastes all its’ energy digesting food-INSTEAD of eliminating toxins like it should have been doing. This is why many people wake up after eating a huge meal the night before to find a huge zit.

#2) Avoid dairy products

It’s becoming a more accepted fact-even in the medical world-that dairy can cause acne. You want to especially avoid milk-eggs and certain cheeses are acceptable in limited quantities. but if you eliminated it altogether you’d be none the worse for it.

The bottom line

Stay away from putting toothpaste on pimples-instead focus on these 2 tips and you should see results shortly.
