For those of you with mild/moderate acne, the toothepast mask really does work. I have heard on tv that j.Lo does it and it works for her, and I have seen people who say that it doesn't work at all and that it is a myth. But, i'll tell ya it works for me. Just take toothepaste, a white paste, not the blue gel, and put it on your pimples, or problem areas, or even your whole face, at night before you go to bed. Wash it off in the morning and go about your business and repeat every night. It helped me a lot. Of course, it burns the first couple of times and you will peel every once in a while. It exfoliates your skin and this is why you peel.
I'm not promising anything, but if you have tried everything else, it wouldn't hurt.
If you have dry skin, I don't know how it will affect you, as mine is very oily. Hope this helps someone.
I've heard about this and have yet to actually try it on more than a spot. I also have heard that it mostly works because of the baking soda in it. So if you somehow made a baking soda paste it would have pretty much the same effects. Again I havn't tested any of this. Gl to anyone who does. I don't want that crap all over my pillows. I wouldn't want to wash them every day.
"i also have heard that it mostly works because of the baking soda in it."
yes... It would work just as well. In fact baking soda paste is safer because different toothpastes can have ingredients that can burn and really irritate your skin. Baking soda is also good for exfoliation (mixed with a gentle cleanser).
