I have a few spots and want to get rid of them (as you would!), is it worth putting toothpaste on them? Any suggestions?

Thanks

The ol' Jade from BB3 trick. I've done it. Not sure it works though.

Think it just reduces redness so makes them less noticeable...

I do this sometimes when im desperate, the toothpaste dries the spot out so it goes faster..in theory it should work but im not sure it does, might as well try

nooo I tried it once and my spot was ten times worse in the morning, it was seriously the biggest spot i've ever had! That might not have been the toothpastes fault though

Try sunlight. In this weather you should notice your spots going away

Never worked for me either, actually it made my spots worse and my skin really dry!

If you have acne then Clinique is your friend
I had awful spots but their anti blemish soap has cleared mine up a treat! You'll need to use it for a few months before you see a difference though! (well, I did anyway!)

Oxy on the spot is the best stuff in the world. if you stick it on overnight you can really notice the difference the next day, the redness and size is reduced and they clear up pretty quickly.

Definitely just get a lot of sun, I swear it's the best spot remedy around.

But if you get a lot of sun...you'll just get wrinkles a whole lot earlier...

Toothpaste didn't work for me...although that could be cos I left it overnight, then it wouldn't come off so i had to rub at it, so it made the spot flare up again!
I just ignore them and hope they go away when I get spots now!

LOL I posted a thread on this just the other day!

It worked wonders for me, leaving it on a spot for about an hour.

Washing it off with cool water.

Takes up to 3 days to get rid of one spot completely.

tooth paste kinda dries them out so their not as red and noticeable. Its not very good for your skin though i dont think

Leaves your pillow minty fresh in the morning though
