This Woman Glued Her Armpit Shut While Trying to Wax It

By

A young woman tried having a "surprise" waiting for her boyfriend when he returned from a vacation and it unfortunately involved wax and a lot of regret.

The beauty industry is very, very good at separating consumers from their money by attacking our shallow need to look beautiful. While there's nothing wrong with wanting to look pretty, companies and influencers are pushing some pretty gnarly beautification methods  every day.

The sheer fact that people shave their eyebrows and tattoo new ones on them is kind of weird. But even some of the more common beauty practices, like lancing your flesh to hang metallic hoops through them or shoving your feet into high-heeled pumps, are equally bizarre and just as painful, if not more.

But out of all the common beauty trends that boggle my mind, I'd say waxing is probably the craziest.

While I understand that beauty is pain and that hair is unsightly on some parts of the body, why anyone would heat up a substance that's designed to be poured onto our flesh and then use it to tear the hair out of the follicle is beyond me.

Especially when things can go terribly wrong. And no, I'm not just talking about this hilarious scene from The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
