Hey, I heard that if you put toothpaste on your zits they'll go away, is that true?
And can someone please give me ideas because I have the most biggest zit on my nose

Yeah, it's not magic, but it will help dry them out

Potato also helps to dry them up. Just take a normal white potato and cut a piece out of it and rub it on the infected spot. There is something in the potato juice that helps! Put the rest of the potato in a baggie in the fridge for next time. I've tried so I know it helps. Not a magical potion but it can't hurt.

Thanks a bunch
! So am I suppose to use any particular toothpaste? And Im sorry for this stupid question but, what is visine? Also, do I just put the tooth paste on my zits and then wash it off right away or should I wait a bit? I want to make sure I do everything as instructed, eek, do you think any of this might cause a reverse reaction ????

No problem!
visine are eye drops - they take the red out of your eyes if you get irritation or allergies... it helps shrink blood vessles so they don't look so bloodshot - but it also works on skin to help fade away some of the red.

As far as the toothpaste I would suggest using the paste kind not the gel. As for brand I don't think that it matters.

so the paste doesn't come off w/ the potato

the toothpaste should be left on the zit overnight. clearasil ultra is also very good for spot treatment,( 10% benzoil peroxide), but it is about $8.
