WATCH: Women are shaving their legs with sandpaper in bizarre TikTok trend

A new trend is taking over TikTok and we have exactly the same questions you do...

Woman shaves legs with sandpaper

A woman revealed on TikTok that she discovered a new way to remove the hair on her legs and this 'hack' is now trending. 

The TikTok user, @Jules49, revealed she came up with the idea after following accountants on TikTok. 

"I'm watching this girl, she's an accountant, and she starts talking about shaving her legs with sandpaper!" Jules explained.

"She used 600 grit sandpaper on her legs. She said to circle this way 10 times, and then do the same thing in the opposite direction 10 times."

She continued: "I did it, and oh my God, my skin is so soft. It's awesome. And it works!

"I have been using a fricking razor all this time - didn't need one! All I needed was 600 grit sandpaper. Thank you, accountants of TikTok."

As we said, we don't think this is the safest method for hair removal. Sandpaper is really rough and you could scrape your skin in the process. 

Some experts weighed in on the issue, warning the women that the sandpaper can actually remove layers from the skin and could lead to folliculitis as a result of aggravating the hair follicles.
