Why women are now applying toothpaste on their breasts

Over the years people have come up with bizarre hacks in an attempt to change the way they look and the latest beauty trend sweeping the internet isn't any less weird.

Some women are under the impression that rubbing toothpaste onto their boobs will make them look bigger and help reduce sagging.

YouTuber NaturalBeauty556 shared a video titled 'Tighten Sagging Breasts in 6 Days Using Toothpaste No Jokes 100% Working Result In Live Demo'.

The video shows viewers how to make a paste containing toothpaste, cucumber, yoghurt, flour and egg whites, which the blogger spreads on her chest.

She claims the ingredients will tighten the skin on the breasts.

Other YouTubers, such as ZonelynTV , have revealed how they rub toothpaste on their nipples and Vaseline on their chest, in order to grow their cup size.

They recommend doing this for 30 days to see the best results.

Toothpaste has long been known as a remedy for spots, as it dries out the skin, but can it really make you look like you've had a boob job without actually going under the knife?

Christopher Inglefield, the medical director of the London Bridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Clinic, told : "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."

He added that all the hack would do is leave your breasts smelling minty fresh and that it was "highly unlikely" you'd see any growth.

Several beauty bloggers were duped by the hack and posted their own videos to debunk the myth that toothpaste makes your breasts bigger.

Makeup blogger MakeupMesha shared a video called 'What Vaseline and toothpaste did for my tits'.

In the video, she explains that she had been wanting bigger boobs for a while and thought trying the hack couldn't hurt.

Ultimately she saw no results.
