Toothpaste Treats Your Pimples? Answer- Aloe Vera


toothpaste is a popular pimple treatment myth by peachpurple



My teenager daughter was complaining of her pimples on her sweet chubby face.

There were quite a few of them, red shiny dots popping up here and there every month.


She wanted to squeeze them out but she knew that it will leave ugly scars when the squeezed skin dried up.

“Toothpaste!!” she exclaimed in delight.

“My BFF said that toothpaste could treat pimples super fast!”


Did it really worked out for her BFF?

Or this is just another pimple myth that people are spreading across the Internet?


If it really did worked out, I guess that all those branded companies which had been producing and manufacturing

pimple gels, cream and facial wash should pack up their bags and change their product soon.


Come to think of it, it is true that toothpaste contains some ingredients that might help to ease the pimples from popping

up further and dry them out.


However, Baking soda and menthol also irritate sensitive skin very much.

There is a higher chance that your smooth skin might end up with red skin and dry peeling surface instead of killing off those pimples.


Maybe, your pimples might clear up soon but it will leave skin redness due to the contents penetrates into your skin pores.


There are several home remedies treatment for pimples on the net.

Hence, I decided to ask my daughter to become the “guinea pig” for this homemade remedy.


Aloe vera. I had planted 2 flower pots of aloe vera in the backyard.

She said alright, give it a shot since she needn’t spend any money on the skin care products.


Here are the results of the home remedies for pimples which were tested out .
