Did you grow up hearing about all sorts of home remedies from “the old country?” I’ll bet, like me, you rolled your eyes, never giving them much credence. Perhaps we should have paid more attention to our elderly relatives. It seems they were often on to something according to an article I recently came across.

One home remedy that I’d never heard of before was to use toothpaste for facial blemishes. The article said that when a pimple rears its ugly head, reach for the toothpaste. Apply a dab over the pimple and let the toothpaste set. Once set, rinse off the toothpaste. This handy trick helps quickly dry up the pimple. Who knew?
