I love pretty much all beauty stuffs. I do weird things like put food on my face, and I do more common things like not wash my hair every day. And then there are things like vampire facials that are too extreme for my tastes.
But I was thinking about common beauty practices and rituals that I do that are actually pretty gross. If you think about it, most of the beauty things we do in the sanctity of our own homes are disgusting. However, we can’t stop doing them. And you want to know why? Because they are too damn satisfying.
Check out these 8 gross, but common beauty rituals that we love:
Working With Apple Cider Vinegar
Let's be real: apple cider vinegar is pretty gross. It smells nasty and doesn't taste very good. But it's amazing for your hair, skin and insides. It literally will make you feel like a million bucks.
Pulling Hairs Out Of Places
Especially if you have long hair. Whether it's pulling a stray hair that managed to get caught in your butt or pulling a hair out from your boobs, it's weirdly satisfying. Don't lie, you know it's true.
Plucking Random Gnarly Hairs
Tweezing your eyebrows isn't gross. But how mortified are you when you find a hair pop up on your chin or on a nipple? Yeah, I know you freak out about it. But once you pluck that sucker out, you are so happy.
Dermatologists are all "NO POPPING," but I'm like, "Sorry, brah." Of course, you should not pop a zit until it's ready because that can lead to scabbing and scarring. However, popping a whitehead that's ready or getting that blackhead out that's been staring at you forever feels so good. It's the best thing since sliced bread.
Picking Your Scalp
It might just be because I have scalp psoriasis and can't really help it, but picking at your scalp is very satisfying. You know when you just have a scalp bump or too much buildup in a follicle? Picking it out feels amazing, but it's pretty gross.
I know you are not supposed to shove Q-tips into your ears. It's not good for you, but it feels amazing. It's also really gnarly to see all that earwax come out. Blech!
Omg pumice stones are disgusting, but how else are you supposed to exfoliate your feet? You're literally scraping dead skin off the bottoms of your feet, and it feels fantastic.
Filing Your Nails
Does anyone else think filing your nails is a gross concept? Where does all that nail dust go? It's just chillin' around your house. But it feels so nice!
