#favFriday: How to get rid of…

“ATTENTION I AM NOT A LICENSED DERMATOLOGIST OR BEAUTY GURU. WHAT I DO FOR MY SKIN WAS EXPERIMENTAL BUT IT WORKS FOR ME SO I’M OPEN TO SHARE MY TIPS WITH YOU.”

Hey everyone!!! This #favFriday continues my talk with you all about skin care. My focus today is to help you get rid of pimples FAST! We all get those pop up pimples especially when a special event is about to happen. I want to share with you how I’ve been getting rid of mine fast. This remedy isn’t a permeant fix to cure your ance problem, it’s to help with those few random pimples. So you still need to continue to use your regular face wash method.

Here are the two things I use for my pimple remedy:   Clinique exfoliating scrub and toothpaste. Yes you read it right. It’s toothpaste. 

I started using toothpaste years ago after I watched an episode of “The Brothers Garcia”(1999) when the daughter got her first pimple and her mom said put toothpaste on it and it worked for her so I tried it. Lol. 

The active ingredients in toothpaste to help dry out pimples are baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and triclosen which is in the white part of the toothpaste. For more help on picking which toothpaste to use check out this link. The reason why I decided to add an exfoliating scrub because the scrub helps to open up my pores and I wanted the active ingredients to work on my pimples faster. I don’t think you have to use the Clinique brand but I already owned it. 

How to apply my remedy: 

First massage to exfoliating scrub onto the area.   

Then massage the toothpaste afterwards.  

Once applied you will feel a cool tingling sensation. That means it’s working! I usually keep it on for an hour more depending on how much time I have. It takes about 2-3 days to clear up depending how bad your acne is. 

All you need is warm water to massage it off and a towel dry. Here’s a before and after of using my remedy. 

 
This is after having my remedy on for an hour an a half and you can already see a difference. So tomorrow I’ll be applying it on my face again. The only time I breakout like this is my time of the month. It’s my mission to get rid of these pimples so that’s why I do this monthly.

So why don’t I just use the acne products that get rid of pimples fast such as Clean & Clear? Other products like that doesn’t work for me and I was tired of wasting money so I just kept using toothpaste. It’s not like I’m going out of my way to buy these products. I’ve already been using Clinique and I need toothpaste to brush my teeth so I’ll always have these products on hand. 

I’ll continue to update you all so you can see the final results. Until then I’ll like to know what home remedies you use at home to clear up your pop up pimples. Comment below. 

Sincerely, Courtney Renee
