I don’t know if I’ll be able to get behind this one.
One of the good, and bad parts about Tik Tok is the viral trends it creates. Of course there are dances, and food trends, but there are also health and beauty trends that gain a lot of traction on Tik Tok too.
The latest trend to go viral on the social media app has me scratching my head.
Jules, who goes by the name @jules49of posted a Tik Tok showing her alternative way to shaving her legs… Sandpaper. Jules used 600 grit sandpaper, and apparently the sandpaper actually worked to make her legs super soft.
The clip quickly gained millions of views.
While some people in the comments were pumped to try the new hair removal hack, others were more concerned. One person commented, “Alright I’m an esthetician, this will rub your skin raw, I wouldn’t recommend.” Another commented, “You know how many small paper cut you are doing to your skin? The chance of getting an infection.”
I won’t lie, this seems like it would be absolutely horrible for your skin, so I don’t think I would try it. But either way, it’s definitely something I’ve never seen before.
