As I've gotten older my acne outbreaks are few and far between, but last week when I was on vacation I noticed a large pimple starting right next to my lower lip. Because I hardly ever have a problem I didn't bother to bring any treatment medicine. What to do?
I vaguely remembered reading that toothpaste could be effective in drying pimples up. Figuring that I didn't have much to lose I put a tiny dab standard white-colored toothpaste on the spot right before I went to bed.
When I woke up the offending area was much clearer. I don't think I'd rely on toothpaste to clear up my skin on a regular basis, but it sure saved the day this time!
