If you’re looking for a new way to curl your hair with less damage or get clearer skin, TikTok is full of beauty hacks. And now a hack that claims to make makeup “glide on smooth” is going viral on TikTok, but you’re better off steering clear of this one.

According to Newsweek lube is the newest beauty thrend. Sean Anthony, a beauty content creator on the app, suggests that his 343-thousand followers mix lube in with their foundation. In a video, he claims it will leave skin looking “flawless and fresh” and while it may give a smoother finish, it’s not great for your complexion.

This isn’t the only unconventional hack that encourages people to use non-skincare products on their faces. Hemorrhoid cream has been hotly debated as a fix for under-eye bags (I personally use it), but the thing is, these products aren’t intended for use on the face thats why could cause long-term issues. And if you’re really going for a flawless-looking complexion, it starts with a good skincare routine.
