The Weirdest Beauty Tips You've Heard
Can toothpaste really zap pimples? Experts explain whether the wacky beauty tips you've been told actually work
Once we hear advice, whether we actually heed it or not, we usually pass it on to someone else. Then, they do the same. Until suddenly, one day, everyone around you starts to believe that you have to swear off carbs to lose weight or apply toothpaste to a pimple in order for it to magically vanish overnight.
Skip ahead to see if the weirdest beauty tips you've heard actually work.
We as women hear tons of weird DIY beauty tips that have been passed down from our mothers, girlfriends or even from the woman sitting next to us at the nail salon. But, hearing so much advice leaves us beauty enthusiasts of the world wondering: Do these wacky beauty tips actually work? And even though I might have tried a tip to test its legitimacy, have I just convinced myself that I saw results because I've been told so many times that I should (much like the placebo effect)? Or is there verifiable evidence from beauty experts that confirms the effectiveness of that weird thing your Aunt Meryl told you to do to fight frizz?
To answer that last question -- yes, now there is. We compiled from our Facebook page some of the weirdest and most random beauty tips you've heard and asked beauty experts to weigh in on their legitimacy. Here they share whether these tips actually do work, or if they are totally bogus.
