Have you ever been in those binds where you have a beauty dilemma, and the only cure to your problems is no where to be found?! Well, it’s pretty insane how many things can actually help when you least expect it!! One thing I have used when I travel is toothpaste! It’s almost like a cure-all!! Here are my top 3 ways to use tooth paste for your beauty emergency!
- Acne Buster: Toothpaste has been famously beautified as one of the best ways to get rid of acne, but here’s the deal, not all tooth paste will do that! Some will actually make it worse! Using the general white Crest pastey tooth paste is the best, where as using a gel based one can cause irritation. Make sure you leave it on for 30 minutes then rinse, don’t sleep with it on!
- Nail Brightener: This might sound crazy, but using a whitening toothpaste on your finger nails can make your nails SERIOUSLY brighter! It’s actually really simple! Just apply it to your finger nails, rubbing it in well, then leave it on for 20-30 minutes before washing it off. You can repeat this once a week!
- Help Healing: Toothpaste actually has some crazy healing properties! The high amounts of antibacterial ingredients make it great to heal everything from acne scars to smaller irriations! Just apply some on and leave it for 1-2 hours before wiping off!
