A hoax going around online has fooled some women into rubbing toothpaste on their breasts in hopes of making them bigger... Yup, you read that right!
A YouTuber known as Naturalbeauty556 claims that rubbing a mixture of toothpaste, plain floor, egg whites, and grated cucumber will increase the size of your breasts in just 5 days.
It's no surprise that experts were quick to dispel the theory. Christopher Inglefield, from the London Bridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Clinic told Metro that their was no evidence to support the YouTubers claims
"This bizarre advice simply preys on the many women who are unhappy with the size of their breasts and who might resort to bizarre 'miracle fixes' to find a solution to their problem."
"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."
Unsurpisingly, those who tried it out were left feeling duped.
"I tried it every night, like an idiot, had my boyfriend looking at me like, 'what is she doing?'" one person wrote.
"The YouTube videos said it’d increase and maximise breast tissue. No – it did not do that at all! Don’t be like me."
The upside for people who may have been fooled into trying this, is that the only side effect is feeling silly for a day or two after realising it didn't work.
