Does toothpaste work on spots? The simple answer is yes, toothpaste does work on spots, here is why…

Using Toothpaste to Remove Blackheads

You know the black spots on the nose and cheeks (blackheads) – are nothing more than the clogged pores, and are the cause of most acne problem. Clogged pores are clinically called comedones, or blackheads (open comedones). The black because they collect dust on them, the remains of cosmetics  or sometimes pieces of epidermis


Stages of acne. (A) Normal follicle; (B) open comedo (blackhead); (C) closed comedo (whitehead); (D)papule; (E) pustule

By themselves, these black spots, have no harmful effect. Problems arise when they get inflamed, or when they start an infection.

That’s why blackheads should be eliminated on time and regularly, preferably using non-aggressive methods that dont irritate skin.

We suggest a method for painlessly removing blackheads, which will help reduce pores on the face, and prevent the occurrence of acne. Anti-bacterial properties will make a very noticeable difference to the inflamed redness that accompanies spots. The characteristics of toothpaste that help it to treat spots besides anti-bacterial and cleaning properties are its ability to absorb oil

Before beginning the procedure of cleansing the pores, boil toothbrush in water for 5 minutes.

  • Steam your face first (you can use chamomile, St. John’s wort or mint). This excellent aromatherapy will affect the face and being well-being of your general condition.
  • Small amount of toothpaste, apply to problem areas of the skin. Leave it on your face for 5 minutes.
  • Then, a light massaging motion, brush massage your skin.
  • Rinse off the paste with warm water, wipe the face tonic.

It is important to bear in mind that the procedure for cleaning the epidermis does not correspond to any of toothpaste. Choose a product that does not contain large abrasive particles  or menthol in large quantities. Not bad, if the composition of the paste are herbs such as sage, chamomile, etc.

Repeat the cleaning procedure 1-2 times a week, depending on the condition of the skin.

Toothpaste is not a long term solution but it should temporarily work, but DO NOT pick your spots. That is probably one of the worst things you can do, it will only increase swelling and you would probably find a bigget zit the next day. Avoid using this method if you have dry skin or as a whole face treatment
