I looked up alot of places and I guess that putting toothpaste on your face can really help clear up your acne, so I have decided to try it. Everynight Im going to put toothpaste on my face. Wish me luck. Has anyone tried it?

Hi! I never knew that toothpaste could reduce acne! What a great tip! Even if you have toothpaste on your face, at least you put it there intentionally. I don't how many times I've looked down just to find toothpaste that fell down onto my shirt! How embarrassing! :-)

I don't know a bout your whole face but I have applied toothpaste to those big ugly zits that seem to pop up overnight and it reduces them drastically in minutes. I first headr about this at pioneerthinking.com in the beauty secrets of the world section its really great, you should check it out.

I have never tried that, but toothpaste can do more than keep your teeth clean, that is for sure. I have heard of using toothpaste for acne. I just don't really know if it works or not. I guess it cant hurt to try it out.

Hey dont try it if u r to sensitive but grading a clover with little water and applying over a acne burns the acne from the root,but initially it gives a lot of burning sensation.u may try it over just one pimple,but be ready for the borning sensation.plzzzzzzzzz dont apply all over the face at once.

i think thats really an unusual treatment and i swear i havent heard taht toothpaste can treat acne, i had severe acne problem last year and my doctor suggested for an antibacterial cream, regular washing of my hair and a medicated soap, since the oily gland were the root cause of my acne, i think its important to find the root cause of acne problem, but just let me know in case your acne get treated my this unusual treatment and best of luck

Actually I have heard of this method once before and its supposed to work good. There is something found in toothpaste (a certain chemical) that can do some good. Toothpaste is also good for cleaning off acratched discs. That proves that it could be a useful cleaner.

Wow where did you exactly get that tips that toothpaste can help you clear the acne? I wish you all the best, though. I've never tried it. Usually I just put the acne cream, or use the cleanser to clean my face, and that's it.
