Spot Treatment

While I have been blessed to be from a long line of women who look nowhere near their age, this delay in developing fine lines and wrinkles doesn't come without a price. At near 30, I still get spots and pimples every so often. I don't have any magic solution or  elixir that will rid you of spots forever  or take them away instantly, but I do have and tried and true trick I learned in the sixth grade for drying out pimples and helping them heal faster.

Gross pimple photos ahead...I think you can handle it.

Firstly, you will need toothpaste (any is fine) and some sort of toner/cleaner. I've been using Clean & Clear since I was like 11, but you can use whatever works for you.

 Obviously you should clean your face and get all of your make-up off using whatever method your normally do. Give it a once over with your toner.
 Now....apply the toothpaste! Leave it on overnight or at least several hours. It may sting a bit, but you're tough. You can handle it.
 Cleanse off the next morning either in the shower or with a warm wash cloth/flannel. It doesn't erase the pimples instantly, but they sure are a lot drier and on their way to healing up.
