“hoe” tips debunked
i made a post similar to this a while go and i decided to make another one but instead of giving you tips i’ll be telling you which ones to avoid because theey are harmful/work temporarily/don’t work at all
-instagram makeup artists lie. a lot. you don’t need to buy a $70 face mask to have nice skin, and you don’t need to buy a gold elixir to have soft lips. even so, most face masks are temporary and will only make your skin clear for a day or so.
-drinking pineapple juice before sex doesn’t do anything. it takes days for the fruit to actually settle into your body.
-douching is fucking terrible for your vagina because 1) it only pushes bacteria farther into your vag 2) NOTHING IS SUPPOSED TO GO UP YOUR VAGINA IT WILL CLEAN ITSELF
-anything that smells like perfume is not meant to go on your face. scented products will irritate your skin/make it itchy. go for something unscented/naturally scented with things like aloe vera, etc.
-don’t invest too much time or money into getting rid of acne scars, they usually fade on their own, and products for fading acne scars usually aren’t that pricey. unless in your case you have extremely bad scarring that calls for laser surgery, don’t stress about it.
-coconut oil is bad. it’s bad for shaving, it’s bad as a moisturizer, it’s not supposed to go on your skin. coconut oil is supposed to go in your hair and ONLY in your hair. keep it off of your skin.
-on top of that, rubbing coconut oil on your stretchmarks doesn’t work. in fact, none of the “hoe” tips about stretchmarks actually work. if you really want to get rid of them, invest in a good fading cream.
-like i said previously, nothing is supposed to go up your vagina. not water, not perfume, soap, nothing. you can clean your vulva with a scentless soap, but don’t ever put soap up your vag. your vagina was made to clean itself, and putting things up their will tip your ph.
-layering your skin 8 types of different acne medication will not get rid of your acne.
-it doesn’t matter how much pineapples and cranberries you eat. if your diet is trash your vagina won’t taste any different.
-if you have cystic acne the twitter/tumblr skin tips aren’t going to work for you. invest in a good acne medication, see a dermatologist if possible, because i know first hand that drenching yourself in tea tree oil does not work.
-stay away from skin products that have gold in them. gold is actually and irritant and the tightening you feel when you use a gold infused product is your skin reacting to the gold.
-pore strips can be very damaging and literally rip your skin off if you use them to often
-those spinny brushes that every ig makeup artist promotes damage your skin if you use them everyday. you don’t want to exfoliate your face more than once a week or your skin will become extremely sensitive.
-ACNE IS GENETIC. IF YOU HAVE CYSTIC ACNE THE AMOUNT OF WATER YOU DRINK WON’T GIVE YOU CLEAR SKIN. it doesn’t matter if you drink 2 gallons of water every day. acne is genetic and no amount of water will change that. if you really want clear skin, talk to your doctor/dermatologist, or invest in a good face wash and/or acne cream. what works for girls with natural clear skin isn’t going to work for you.
