Everyone wants a quick fix and a two-in-one product. We're happy to say in toothpaste, you might just have found your miracle product... if you like dry skin that is!

Toothpaste does have the ability to dry up skin, which can clear up pimples. But what it leaves behind will have your scratching your skin and possibly worsening the condition of your face. It can irritate, dry out, and even burn skin around the application area.

Rather than using toothpaste, combat pimples with over the counter pimple meds that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. When used in proper doses, these will clear up pimples but won't dry out your skin.
