    I put toothpaste on a spot the other day and it burnt a big hole in my face that took a week to go away. I had a big round red patch and it was much worse than the spot had been. I think it was because I'd been sunbathing and my skin was extra sensitive.

    So no I wouldn't recommend toothpaste!

    Maybe you are feeling stressed? Try and drink more water or do a mini detox. Make-up clogs up pores and does not allow your skin to breathe. Hope it clears up soon then =0)

    Try not to touch your face either; hands have bacteria on them and you just increase the chances of more spots developing by touching your face.

    lol use toothpaste as it dries out the moisture of the spots, but dont use it if you want to go out or have been going out to sunbathe as it makes your skin more photosensitive - one of the ingredients in toothpaste is found in many spot creams and oral medication, when using toothpaste wait over night and if you decide to squeeze them make sure you have a little antiseptic to clean the wound and it will sting a little at first but it usually does the trick - good luck xoxo
