Toothpaste - The Miracle Paste??
Okay, I tried to find a better picture of toothpaste online but, they were all kinda disappointing so my apologies on this boring picture. Anyways, I can scarcely contain my enthusiasm here! I have always heard that toothpaste can be a great acne treatment but, I never really experimented with that theory because I have not had many break outs in my life...until coming back from the Dominican sweat country. I don't know what happened to me; maybe it was the food or the constant sweat drenched face that I lived with...or maybe it was the pillows, but I broke out bad, worse than I have ever experienced before in my life and it depressed me big time upon coming home. I dont' like trying weird stuff on my skin because I have super sensitive skin so I was just ignoring the break out and washing it with a light cleanser once a day and it just got worse and worse. I couldn't take it anymore and one night out of desperation I rinsed my face with water, dried it off and dabbed a thick layer of toothpaste on each individual break out. I let it sit on my skin for 30 minutes. It burns, but personally I like it! I rinsed it off after that and seriously, no freaking joke, the tight, red pimples deflated completely and began healing the next morning. I have since done it one more time and have had the same exact result!! It's sooooo amazing I just had to share. Call me weird if you want, but don't knock it until you try it. Let me know how it works for you. :-)
