We all have our gross habits that we know we shouldn’t do, but we just can’t help it. Us ladies in particular, are notoriously bad at not admitting to them, but we know we ALL do them. Ladies…read on to see if you can find any of your embarrassing habits; fellas…you have been warned.
1- That bra you are currently wearing…when was the last time you washed it?
2- ‘Forgetting’ to shave during winter.
Once September comes around, it is practically winter, i.e time to hibernate and become a hairy wildebeest until June; winner winner. We need the extra layers of fur anyway to make sure we are nice and warm for the winter months. No one sees our legs anyway over Winter so what’s the point!
3- When you are forced to create your own sanitary towel with toilet paper…
Ladies, it happens to the best of us…sometimes you’ve just gotta work with what you’ve got. As embarrassing as it is, there is nothing we can do about not being prepared for certain situations.
4- Yep, we’re all guilty of peeing in the shower.
We like to act ladylike but when push comes to shove and we need to pee, we totally will do so in the shower. What is the point in sitting on the loo and wasting even more water with a flush when you can just wee in the shower and let it go down the drain.
5- Sneezing when on your period is not pleasant…
Boys like to pretend periods are not a thing, but the struggle is definitely real for us girls. When you sneeze on your period you actually can’t think of anything worse.
6- ‘Forgetting’ to wash your hair…
Washing your hair is a full time job, a whole night needs to be set aside for this hefty job. This is why it is also a job that we do on a rare occasion. We can’t be bothered standing in the shower washing our hair every night, so we wait 4 days at least before we wash it.
7- Does anyone actually wash their makeup brushes?
Is there anything more embarrassing than your friend asking to borrow your foundation brush and realising you haven’t washed it in MONTHS and it is rock hard? Lol sorry hun. This probably explains why our skin is so bad all of the time though, doesn’t it?
8- Using the ‘sniff test’ to decide on your outfit.
We’ve all got that pile of clothes in the corner of our room that is half clothes we have tried on and decided not to wear and half clothes we have already worn. The only logical way to decide what to wear is to sniff your way through the clothes. As gross as it sounds it does do the job nicely.
9- Avoiding using nail varnish remover…
We all know its easier and quicker to just bite it off. Or, if you don’t want to bite it off then you use your other nails to jut scrape it off. This is is an absolute disaster for our nails, but it seems so much easier doing this than getting nail varnish remover. But the real question is why isn’t all nail varnish alcohol flavoured?!
10- Dealing with your sunburned peeling skin…
‘Don’t peel it, it will scar’…but is there a more satisfying feeling in the world than peeling off your skin?! It knocks us all sick, but where on earth do we put the waste skin after it’s been peeled off? Not cute at all. But, it beats having to watch it flake off on its own. Let’s be honest – have you actually ever had a scar from picking your skin off when you’re peeling?
11- Living off this for days (maybe weeks)
I would go as far as saying this stuff is just as important as deodorant in our daily routine. I cannot remember life before Batiste. It has helped us along the way for those days that our hair is super, super greasy.
12- Rewearing your gym outfit…
It’s going to smell again after your gym session tomorrow so what’s the point in washing it today?! Anyone else of this same mentality? I don’t even think it’s a gross way of thinking – instead I think it’s fairly logical to be honest. Why get another outfit minging and sweaty when you can just make the one you wore last time even worse!
13- Admiring your blackhead strip…
There is nothing as satisfying as peeling off your blackhead strip and gazing upon your fallen soldiers for a good half hour after. So long little friends. Good bye to the minging bits on your face. But, thank god they’re gone because the alternative would be trying to pop them yourself and that never ends well.
14- Peeling off your mascara
There is nothing worse than your mascara looking like this, but it is surprisingly soothing peeling off thick clumpy mascara. Have you ever gone a little bit too far and ended up picking actual eye lashes out? I used to do this. But, it was just because we used to use about 5 different mascaras on when we were doing our eyelashes and the result was just a clumpy mess.
15- Using the excess hair in the shower to create shower art
We all shed in the shower, but putting that lost hair to good use is a guilty please of all of ours…I like to consider it a nice little exhibition for the next person to get a shower. It seems like a better place for the hair to go rather than being stuck on our hands or in the drains. The worst thing in the world is when your hair falls out in the shower and it all gets lodged in your bum… who else has had this nightmare?!
16- Cleaning the dirt from under your nails with your nails…
I don’t know how it happens but we all get that dreaded dirt layer under our nails…but using your own nails to clean out the dirt is the only way to deal with it sometimes! It is weirdly satisfying when we do something like this… even though we don’t like to admit it.
17- Fishing out crumbs from your bra
Eating that sandwich seemed like such a good idea until hours later when you have a horrendous itching coming from your bra, to find half the content of Pret lodged between your boobs! Then you have the awkward task of trying to get rid of it without anyone catching on that you have food lodged in your bra.
18- Picking your nose when no one is watching
Yes it is not lady like, but sometimes it is simply a necessity. Have you ever blown your nose on a fresh face of makeup? NIGHTMARE.
19- Playing with your ‘non existent’ tash
‘Moustache? What moustache?!’ – any girl that says they don’t have a tash is basically a liar.
20- Squeezing your spots…
I don’t care what anyone says, there is no greater feeling in the world than squeezing your spots!
