TOOTHPASTE PIMPLE SHRINKER

TOOTHPASTE PIMPLE SHRINKER
"Dehydrates the pimple and absorbs the oil." It works for me and may work for you. Beware if you have sensitive skin though; some people report increased redness and irritation.

Instructions: Before going to bed, wash and moisturize your face as usual. Apply enough toothpaste on the pimple to cover it completely. You may experience a temporary burning sensation. Do not rinse off until the morning. I have better results with creamy toothpaste over the gel versions. If I'm going out on the town, sometimes I do this treatment for about 10 minutes, and then wash it off with water.

Additional notes: "Be careful not to use a whitening toothpaste because they tend to have high levels of hydrogen peroxide that may irritate or burn the skin."

TOOTHPASTE FOR A BURN
Use toothpaste to get the sting out of a burn.Leave the toothpaste on until it dries and you can wash off and continue to use it until the sting is completely gone.
