Erm This YouTuber Has Everyone Putting Toothpaste On Their Boobs
All in the name of stopping them sagging.
We have tried every beauty hack on the planet, and we’re down for going full-on DIY in our attempts to hit a good glow up, but toothpaste will not make your boobs grow.
And this latest trend circling the web isn’t just plain bizarre, but apparently harmful.
A YouTuber called Naturalbeauty556 posted a video that’s gone viral, titled ‘Tighten Sagging Breast In Just 5 Days Using Toothpaste No Jokes.’ And it looks legit, but does it really work?
According to Teen Vogue, and their interview with Dr. Susan Bard (a doctor in dermatology), the answer is no.
"This is preposterous. None of the ingredients in these concoctions have the capacity to increase breast tissue or tighten loose skin,” Dr. Susan Bard told Teen Vogue.
And the ingredients she’s referring to are toothpaste, flour, egg whites and grated cucumber, all of which Naturalbeauty556 claimed would tighten breast tissue and reduce sagging.
She went on to say that: “Applying these mixtures are not without risk as they can cause contact dermatitis.” So instead of tightening your breast tissue this hack could lead to inflammation of the skin. Not the effect anyone was hoping for.
With just under 8 million views on the YouTube video, too many people could have taken it seriously, so let’s nip this in the bud right here.
You could definitely feel a ‘tightening’ sensation when applying the mixture to your breasts/chest, but that’s because toothpaste is drying, and tightens when it does so.
You’d get the same sensation putting toothpaste anywhere on your body.
Toothpaste is meant for brushing your teeth, well, that and reducing spots (a beauty trick that actually works), so put the Colgate down, look in the mirror and pay yourself a mint compliment. So punny.
Let us know if you gave this hack a try @MTVUK!
