Myth Busters: Ice and Lipstick

Cause of Acne: Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation
I have terrible chin acne 🙁 and I really do not want to use OTC products.. seasalt works well only if your pimple has errupted already.

So I tried 2 of the “acne busting” myth that I’ve been hearing about since I was a kid.

Ice, and lipstick.

For the ice part, any block of ice would do (clean please) and for lipsticks, I heard that the regular kind works well. (not those with complicated formulas). So I used my NYX in strawberry milk so my chin wouldnt look so red.

ICE – place ice on inflamed skin for 15-20 minutes.

Did it work? Sadly no, it just made the aching pain go away. Nothing happened the following day as the redness and inflammation still exists.
Lipstick – Apply lipstick just like any spot treatment and leave overnight. 

Did it work? Much as I wouldnt like to admit it, but surprisingly it did! I did this for 2 consecutive nights though. 1st day, they were swollen, about to pop out. 2nd day, they popped out and dried completely. Now my chin acne has some redness but it is “dead” so we say

    Wow, I've never heard of the lipstick one.

    In response to the comment above, you should avoid getting toothpaste on your skin. Fluoride is a huge skin irritant and can aggravate acne. The same can be said of the SLS found in most toothpastes. And the high amounts of hydrogen peroxide in whitening toothpastes can irritate or burn your skin, plus hydrogen peroxide actually kills healthy skin cells and delays healing.

    So, you should be extremely careful not to get toothpaste on your skin when brushing your teeth. If you have persistent acne around your mouth or on your chin, you may want to look into switching to a new toothpaste.

    Sorry, not trying to sound like an encyclopedia. But I constantly have acne on my chin, so I've looked into possible causes.
