Yes, you read that correctly. People are going nutty over this beauty secret …
Guys, there's a new weird and wonderful beauty hack that's being lauded by women all over the internet and it involves peanut butter.
We're not joking; the nutty spread is being hailed as the secret to making your pins silky smooth.
The beauty hack came to everyone's attention when journalist Maxine Builder gave it a go for Bustle. "Peanut butter was by far the most radical alternative to shaving cream I came across in my research, so I had to try it," she said.
“I figured creamy peanut butter would be better than crunchy. The result was surprisingly good, even if the process was unsurprisingly disgusting.”
However, the Twittersphere was not convinced …
Putting aside for one moment the state your bathroom would be in after using peanut butter instead of shaving cream, according to Dr Susan Mayou, a consultant dermatologist at London’s Cadogan Clinic, using the sticky stuff has its pros and cons.
She told the Daily Mail: “Peanut butter has a moisturising effect because it is oily, but even used just as a beauty product, it can be highly allergenic.”
We think we’ll be saving our jar of peanut butter for something else … like these awesome treats.
