Is this true? Is it effective?
Also, I heard using toothpaste for acne might cause scars , true?
I tried it for whiteheads but it wasn't that great. Drinking lots of water was more beneficial for me. I have no idea on acne though.
No it doesn't. Try exfoliating and a good toner.
I've tried it and it personally just burned me and left my face red! (But I have quite sensitive skin). I've been trying a tea tree spot stick recently though and my spots have gone down quite significantly.
Toothpaste will irritate the skin, and the pimple will probably eventually disappear along with the irritation, but toothpaste is in no way a primary treatment for acne. Over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid work great to clear acne -- and help prevent it, as well.
There is a misconception that toothpaste can cure acne. Toothpaste contains[font=Arial, serif] triclosan which not only makes the skin dry but can leave a scarbehind. They can even cause redness and burns on the delicate skin.Methanol present in the toothpaste causes irritation andinflammation. Consult a good dermatologist and take appropriatetreatment.
