This blogger removed arm hair with toothpaste and everyone is like... WTF?
Sorry but no.
There are multiple ways to remove hair. Some are effortless and some take a lot of time. Some are painless and some hurt like b*tch.
We all have our preferred method and that's grand. To each their own and all that.
But not one of those methods is toothpaste... because toothpaste is for your teeth and not your skin.
However, a blogger has come up with a hair removal 'hack' which involves toothpaste and turmeric powder... and we're honestly like... whaaat?

Madina Shrienzada, a beauty vlogger that bases her content on DIY hacks shared a video this week of her removing hair on her forearm by mixing the two ingredients together.
She rubbed it on her skin a little, waited for it to dry and then viola! a chunk of her hair came off.
Mona Gohara, M.D., dermatologist at Yale University told Cosmopolitan: “It may make a good paste, like how sugaring is a good paste for removing hair, but it can also be irritating and not that effective."
Yeah, we think we're going to give this one a miss.
