You would be super surprised at what this old wives tale can do to your skin. We’re pretty sure we have all been there when we are dead broke and we don’t have the money to get our facial products and then boom, a spot appears from nowhere.

But the one trick we always resort back to is good old toothpaste. Other zit eliminating methods come and go but toothpaste stars eternal. The thing is though, does it really work?
