Skin Fact or Fiction: Does Toothpaste Cure Acne?

Sarah Eggenberger, beauty and lifestyle expert visited with Val Warner, co-host of the popular “Windy City Live” television program to discuss what does and does not work for getting rid of acne – and to share her favorite acne product that gets amazing results.

Val Warner hosted a recent segment of Windy City Live, the popular daytime TV show that airs on ABC Chicago, with guest and beauty expert Sarah Eggenberger, for a little fun with beauty facts and myths.  Sarah tested Val’s beauty knowledge with a question that comes up quite often around the internet.  

The question: “Dabbing toothpaste on a breakout will make it disappear, Fact or Myth?”  

Val took a quick poll of the audience and noted that they were split down the middle.  Some thought it was a fact while others believed it was a myth.

Sarah set the record straight – “It’s a myth!”  She explained to the audience that “It’s not true because what is going to happen is two things; first of all, the tooth paste is very drying, so it’s going to dry out the surrounding area, so now it is like a bull’s eye, instead of just a breakout, so it’s even worse.”  Sarah continued, “Then the tartar control ingredients and the flouride actually is going to irritate the skin.  So now it’s dry and it’s irritated, and it’s a zit, so it’s like ‘there it is!'”

“So what do you recommend?” asked Val.

Sarah explained “What your going to want to use a clarifying system.”  What’s her favorite product for clearing up acne fast?
