We’ve said it before, and no doubt we’ll say it again, but it really is uncanny how much you can learn on TikTok, However, it’s always important to remember that you shouldn’t believe everything you see on the internet.
Sadly, many men didn’t heed this warning, and have been left believing that women actually peel the skin off their faces when they’re on their period. Well, the female body has done stranger things, it must be said.
The bizarre and obviously extremely incorrect belief came from a TikTok video of model Dakota Fink peeling what we can only imagine is a face mask off her face.
“Throwback to when men didn’t know we had to peel off layers of our skin after our period,” she wrote alongside the clip. Ah, those were the days.
The clip was quickly inundated with comments from other women who shared their own (completely made up) experiences of skin shedding during that time of the month. You’ve really got to love the internet sometimes.
“This happened while I was applying makeup because I forgot and wasted so much foundation,” one TikTok user commented, while another added: “Someone has to slap me really hard (like simp hard) for it to peel off. If anyone wants to volunteer just holler.”
A third wrote: “For those asking, it’s supposed to start two to three years after your first period, usually one to three days out of your cycle. Let’s normalise talking about it.”
“Thank you so much for normalising this!! Women don’t need to be insecure about this,” a fourth added.
“So it’s true… to every girl, woman, and non binaries that have periods. I’m so sorry y’all have to go through soo much,” one extremely confused man commented.
Another added: “I’m a boy, and this is actually true?!”
