A tip from supermodels who use this to control breakouts. It really works well for my daughter. Buy plain mint toothpaste, *not* gel or the ones formulated for tartar control.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • mint toothpaste, we like Pepsodent, Colgate
  • water
  • soap bar


  1. After washing your face, apply a dab of toothpaste over each pimple. Be sure the dab of toothpaste is enough to cover each pimple completely.
  2. Allow the toothpaste to dry. You can leave it on overnight.
  3. Gently wash your face with mild soap and warm water.

I told my teenage son about this and he tried it. The next morning he was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked. Thanks for the recipe.
