Okay, so the internet is a very strange place. We know this. It's full of odd tips and tricks about literally everything. The latest hack floating around the web that's gone viral involves toothpaste and boobs. And no, this is not a joke. We've all grown up with the idea that toothpaste is essential for our pearly whites. But Metro UK reports that YouTubers are claiming it's also an essential way to "tighten" saggy boobs. Not kidding, a blogger by the name of Naturalbeauty556 said that after applying toothpaste on her boobs, they were tightened and got bigger in five days. She's currently getting slandered in her comments for this hack.
A good DIY trick will always grab our attention, but this one sounds super suspect. The blogger said that she slathered a concoction of toothpaste, plain flour, egg whites, and grated cucumber on her chest, which apparently tightened them in a few days. And things get even more extreme. Metro UK also reports that another YouTuber, Susana Home Remedies, encourages her followers to apply toothpaste and vaseline on their nipples to make them grow bigger. She's also under fire with crazy comments.
You're probably wondering the same thing everyone else is: Is this even safe? Teen Vogue interviewed Susan Bard, a dermatologist at Manhattan Dermatology Specialists, and other experts for the verdict. In short, absolutely not.
"This is preposterous," Bard told Teen Vogue. "None of the ingredients in these concoctions have the capacity to increase breast tissue or tighten loose skin. Applying these mixtures are not without risk as they can cause contact dermatitis," says Bard. Metro talked to Christopher Inglefield, medical director of the London Bridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Clinic, who called this viral hack "pure online quackery."
Lesson of the day: Don't trust everything you read on the internet, ladies and gentlemen. Below are amazing skincare products for your boobs that are safe and dermatologist-approved. Stick with these and not toothpaste.
Treat your boobs to these.
