Tips & Tricks Tuesdays: Sudden Breakouts

The simplest way to nip breakouts in the bud? White toothpaste. You can apply just a dab of white toothpaste on the breakout site to reduce redness, calm inflammation, and dry it out faster. It also works well if you feel a breakout coming on and you want to keep it from going any further. I've found it works best to wear the toothpaste overnight after you wash your face . It gives the product enough time to do its thing. So next time you break out don't run for the tweezers, grab your toothpaste instead.

Note: this is just for spot treatments. Toothpaste was made for teeth, not skin. If you try this method regularly or as an all-over treatment it can over dry the skin causing redness and peeling. Be careful and be smart.
