Amanda’s bathroom remedy is super popular, but the experts tell us it could have some scary side effects for your skin!

We’ve all heard that toothpaste helps get rid of that nasty red zit—put some on at bedtime and wake up to a fresh, clear face!  Amanda Seyfried, 25, is a big fan of using toothpaste on her face, but we want to know if there are any real results. We can’t just be putting anything on our faces!

“Toothpaste is satisfying,” says Amanda to People. “You can actually feel the burn.” So can this cooling sensation really be helping your skin? Dr. Lauren Zeifman, founder of Park Avenue Skin Solutions, tells us that Amanda’s remedy can work, but you have to be careful. “If you have dry or sensitive skin, it can cause irritation.”  Toothpaste helps dry out a pimple if you need a quick fix, she says, but it’s definitely not something to use as a regular skincare regime.

Celebrity dermatologist Dr. David J. Goldberg tells us that the cooling sensation doesn’t help acne, it just dries it out. “Because it tends to get rid of bacteria in the mouth, people assume that it gets rid of bacteria in acne — not true.”

And the fluoride in toothpaste might even do more damage than good! Dermatologist Dr. Joel Schlessinger warns us, “While teeth are hard, your skin isn’t, and toothpaste can end up leaving severely irritated skin or an eventual allergic reaction.” Maybe not the best option, Amanda!
