  • yes it can do if you leave it on to dry supposedly it can help!
  • Some people think so. "Toothpaste as a home remedy for acne is nothing new. But the question is, does it work? Some people swear by the unconventional treatment, saying that a dab of fluoride paste significantly reduces the size and redness of pimples by drying them out." Source and more here: http://acne.about.com/od/acnemedications/a/Acnetoothpaste.htm Also: "The best preventative measure is to wash your face twice daily with a gentle soap or cleanser. Also try to avoid unnecessary stress. Refrain from touching your face frequently and always cleanse your face after exercising to prevent sweat from clogging your pores."

  • No, but it can help tone down the redness.
  • Yes it can, but im 17 and just coming out of my "achne time" I still get spots as a matter of fact I have a few just now that iv just sqeezed. I put toothpaste on because it tones down the redness.
  • I've heard that toothpaste does help dry out zits. My relatives swear by it, but it has to be "paste"... the gel types of 'toothpaste' won't do the trick.
  • I do it and it can help dry them out faster. I put it on after I wash my face at night and when I wake up, it's not as big. So get rid of zits..no, but it will help in drying it out faster. But ONLY the toothpaste kind works not the gel.
  • Ive never heard of that, but toothpaste takes a lot of stains from clothing and sneakers.
  • I've heard that. I know that antiperspirant does for sure tho. It dries them out.
  • Nothing I know of works better at drying them out than benzoyl peroxide (10%) solution.
