The Doctors love a viral beauty trend, but we must remind viewers social media is not always the best place to take advice from!
Dermatologist Dr. Azadeh Shirazi, who is known for calling out these fake beauty claims, weighs in on popular trends including using crushed aspirin, baking soda, and lemon juice on the skin. She notes using aspirin can be very irritating and a recipe for a "skin disaster." She says the claims this mixture can be used as chemical peel are to not be trusted and that people should not perform this.
What about the online claim that erection cream can be used as a lip plumper?
Dr. Shirazi says, "It doesn't belong on your lips!" She notes many of them contain a topical antiseptic or an ingredient designed to open blood vessels and could lead to painful blisters on the lips. Instead, she suggests using a lip gloss that contains natural peppermint oil.
As for the trend of using a vibrator on the face to increase circulation in the skin, our expert says this claim is buzzworthy in all the wrong ways. The dermatologist explains a traditional vibrator can be too intense for the face and lead to bruising. She suggests instead using a gentle facial vibrator and combining it with a hyaluronic acid serum to help protect your skin.
