I still remember putting toothpaste on the acne I had all over my face as a teenager. I struggled with acne during this time and discovered quite a lot of things too. I never thought a simple toothpaste could actually dry out the acne without leaving any scars. This was just one of the many benefits I have known about a toothpaste!
Toothpaste is only known for cleaning our teeth. Have you ever thought that the ingredients which can make your teeth white and your breath fresh can be useful in many other ways too?
I will be discussing beauty hacks of a toothpaste which would make you wonder why you haven’t used it for multiple purposes other than teeth brushing.
Beauty Hacks of a Toothpaste
As I have already mentioned above that a toothpaste can actually dry out the acne without leaving any marks. The face becomes fresh and free of acne in no time. Just apply a pea sized amount of the toothpaste over the acne and let it dry. Wash off with warm water. Repeat it at least three times a week and see the results. I would also like to mention here that I am talking about tooth paste and not a gel here.
There is a difference between a toothpaste and a gel and all these beauty hacks are based on a toothpaste and not the gel.
2. Anti Aging Mask
I discussed a few anti aging masks in my post Learn to Make Top 5 Anti Aging Masks at Home Recipes that made use of food items like eggs, honey, olive oil, and yogurt etc. But here I would discuss a new mask that uses toothpaste instead!
I just recently discovered such an amazing mask which I now am using for some time. This mask would remove the early signs of aging and would give your skin the glow it needs.
You need to mix a table spoon of baking soda with a teaspoon of toothpaste and make a paste with water.
This mixture needs to be of a thick consistency so that it can easily be applied on your face. Leave it on until it completely dries out. Apply this mask at least thrice a week and you will notice a remarkable difference in a week’s time.
3. Skin Whitening Treatment
A toothpaste can whiten your teeth so it can also whiten your skin. This mask will not only lighten your skin tone but it will also remove any sun tan. If you want to give your skin a refreshed look after long exposure to the sun, this mask is absolutely brilliant.
Take a tablespoon of a toothpaste and mix it with a teaspoon of tomato juice or pulp.
Apply this for at least 15 minutes. You will notice instantly that your skin becomes brighter and glowing.
4. Blackheads Removal
I often get very annoyed when I see blackheads popping on my face. Despite getting regular facials I still get them. At times you need a simple hack which would make your life easy. I found out a very useful blackhead remover mask. This mask will remove all the black heads from the nose and the chin or anywhere else.
Mix a tablespoon of toothpaste with a tablespoon of salt and a teaspoon of rose water.
Apply this mixture on the effected area. Scrub this for at least three minutes and wash off. The result is for you to see yourself.
Leave this scrub on your skin for 10 minutes after scrubbing to get instant results. After 10 minutes, wash your skin with warm water.
5. Unwanted Hair Removal
Every girl I am sure must have tried various ways to get rid of unwanted hair. The most simple way I will tell you here will not only remove unwanted hair but would make your skin smooth too.
Take a tablespoon of toothpaste and mix it with a tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of lemon juice.
Rub this scrub in the opposite direction of the hair you wish to remove. Keep rubbing for at least three minutes and you will notice that your hair become weak and get removed slowly.
These beauty hacks of a toothpaste are tried and tested which give amazing results. I would recommend that you should try at least one of them. To gain good results in less time, you need to be consistent for at least a month.
