    Default Tooth paste for your skin?

    Hi There,
    Im not sure how true this is but i have heard that if you have pretty oily and spotty skin tooth paste is really good.

    I have never tried it but if any of you have - what do you think?

    Using toothpaste to get rid of pimples works according to some of my friends. It's a myth for me though. I tried it and it didn't work, haha. If you have oily skin, make sure to buy a facial cleanser, toner, and moisturizer that is made for oily skin. There are many different products for oily skin these days. Also carry oil blotter sheets to dab away at excess shine during the day. I hope this helps.

    Interesting thread.....I've heard of a lot of remedies for wrinkles, but never any for acne. Great post, I will keep that in mind.

    My girlfriend used that remedy.. I just couldn't put toothpaste on my skin.. I have tried but it seemed unnatural lol

    If it worked all the time, one of the toothpaste companies could make a dual toothpaste

    Toothpastes are considered a 'home-remedy' for pimples. This is beacuse they contain an acne fighting ingredient called Triclosan. The concentration of Triclosan obviously differs from toothpaste to toothpaste and then different type of skin also respond differently. That is what makes it work for some and not for others.

    Smile Toothpaste for Acne

    Maybe it depends on the type of toothpaste? I rarely have acne but when I do, I use toothpaste to treat it. I think it's an old models remedy. It seems to help dry the acne within 1 - 2 days for me. Now, I don't have a lot of acne. I do have oily skin and probably everyone has a different response depending on their skin type, skin sensitivity and the type of toothpaste!
