Does toothpaste get rid of spots?

Does it actually work or is it just another old wives’ tale?

It does…kind of. 

Of course, it won’t remove a spot completely, but it can reduce its ugliness rather rapidly.

Toothpastes dehydrate pimples/spots and absorb oil, effectively drying them out.

A number of chemicals are present in toothpaste that can dry out spots, including baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, triclosan, alcohol and essential oils.

Menthol can soothe irritation, while the antibacterial properties of paste can reduce inflammation and fight infection.

While applying toothpaste won’t get rid of the spot, it should reduce swelling and redness, making the spot less noticeable.
