When it comes to DIY beauty tips not all of them are winners. And some just make you stop and think “who would even try this?”
That’s definitely the case with this latest “beauty tip” craze.
And she’s not the only one.

Another video from Susana Home Remedies says a combination of toothpaste on your nipples and Vaseline on breasts will help them grow larger.
So do these wild beauty tips actually work?

In her video Naturalbeauty556 whips up a bizarre mixture toothpaste, plain flour, egg whites, and grated cucumber which she claims will tighten up sagging breasts in just 5 days.
In fact toothpaste appears to be good for everything besides scrubbing you teeth.
But one daring beauty blogger tried the toothpaste “hack” to see if it actually worked.
It, of course, didn’t.
For 30 days MakeUpMesha used Vaseline and toothpaste on her breasts and said the mixture did nothing at all.
“It did not work. I tried it every night, like an idiot, had my boyfriend looking at me like, ‘what is she doing?'”
But viewers were at least grateful to Mesha for debunking the myth.
Best review EVER: “Don’t be like me. Don’t rub toothpaste on your nipples or Vaseline on your titty-balls because it will not grow your boobs.” https://t.co/5QAZVjKX9G

When Metro asked Christopher Inglefield, medical director of the London Bridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Clinic, he told them the truth about the toothpaste technique.
“Sadly, like a lot of guidance on the internet, the Vaseline and toothpaste method of breast augmentation is fake news and pure online quackery.”
“Your breasts may end up smelling minty fresh, but it’s highly unlikely there will be any growth.”
Who could have guessed rubbing toothpaste on your breasts wouldn’t make them larger?
Well, pretty much everyone.
Don't rub toothpaste on your tits, pals https://t.co/ah7IQIj77i
