6. Toothpaste

I’ve been using this DIY treatment since high school. All I do it take a small amount of regular toothpaste and apply it directly on the pimple. I leave the toothpaste on for 10 minutes or overnight. It just depends on how big the pimple is and how long it had been around.

7. Ice

This is something new that I've discovered so I'm a little late to the party. Ice is helpful for shrinking pimples because it helps to reduce blood flow to it which in turn can help reduce swelling and thereby the size of the pimple. Using ice also helps to shrink pores which also assists in shrinking the pimple.

All I do is take a clean ice cube straight from the ice maker and rub it on my pimple for a couple of minutes or as long as I can stand. Another way to do this is to wrap the ice cube in a thin washcloth and place the washcloth on the pimple and leave it there for a few minutes.

What DIY treatments have you used to get rid of pimples/breakouts?
