Oh, to be a woman...
If it's not our own peers and family, it's the media coming up with wild and strange ways to convince us that we have a problem that needs fixing.
So I want to ask the ladies: What's something that you've either been taught or recommended to do to be more "attractive" that's actually very harmful?
Or something you've been told is "good for you" when it's actually "very bad for you."
Maybe you read in a magazine that douching will keep you fresh ✨down there✨ but in reality, you're just setting yourself up for potentially major complications.
Or maybe you had a female family member tell you to use lemons to brighten your skin, but that actually leads to irritation and skin sensitivity.
Perhaps your girlfriends recommended you wear a waist trainer to make your waist smaller, but they didn't tell you about all of the adverse side effects.
Let us know in this anonymous Google form or in the comments below the wildest things you've been told as a woman to make you prettier, thinner, healthier, etc.
