I heard that if you put tooth paste on a pimple before you go to bed that helps. I heard that toothpaste absorbs bacteria and kill it. Or something like that. But i also heard that your not supposed to put it on unaffected skin because if you do you'll wake up with a giant bump on your face
After washing your face, mix about a teaspoon of water and enough baking soda together to make a thick-ish paste. Using a cue tip or something similar, dab the paste on your worst zits and leave on for around 5 minutes. After it's crusted, wash off with steamy water then use the rest to cover your face completely, then rinse that off. It'll feel like it's burning your face a bit when you leave it on at first, but it helps sooooo much. Trust me.
I have oily skin, and for a I use Clean And Clear oil absorber on my face, and put a lot on where I have acne. Tooth-paste works, the best kind to use is a white paste, not gel. The water and baking soda works as well :)
