Before applying toothpaste on your skin, you should be careful about a couple of things. Don’t use the teeth whitening toothpaste for your skin. These types of toothpastes contain artificial bleach, which can actually burn the skin when applied and as a result dark patches can appear. Toothpastes usually contain fluoride, to remove dental plaque and gum disease. Though healthy for your mouth, such toothpastes are harmful for your skin. So if you choose to apply toothpaste to deal with skin issues, be careful to choose toothpaste with lower fluoride level. This will eliminate skin irritation. But what are the usages of toothpaste for your beauty and skin care? Scroll down below as this post talks about the beauty benefits of toothpaste.

Toothpaste for Skin Whitening

Using toothpaste is one of the best remedies that can be used for skin whitening. Mix 1 tbsp of toothpaste with a few drops of lemon juice and apply this as a face pack on your skin. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash off. Regular use will surely improve your skin tone.

Toothpaste for Acne

Acne is the most dreaded skin problem for most of us. Dab some non-whitening, non-gel toothpaste on the acne and let it stay overnight. Toothpaste will absorb the oil from acne and will dehydrate it and as a result the acne will dry up next morning.
