Toni Braxton’s beauty secret: use a sex toy as a ‘face tingler’
Toni Braxton must be aging backwards.
At 52, the pop-R&B singer remains youthful looking and could very well pass off as someone in her 30s. Her skin, in particular, is “#goals” to many of her followers, who have been bugging her about her skin care routine.
In a recent episode of Vogue magazine’s “Beauty Secrets” YouTube series, Toni hit the bathroom to demonstrate her regimen, and show the products she uses on her face.
But it wasn’t the cleanser or the moisturizer or the eye cream that had everyone buzzing online.
Toni’s “real beauty secret,” it turned out, isn’t some magical concoction you slather on your skin. Midway through her routine, she pulled out a purple gadget that curiously resembled a sex toy.
Well, that’s because it was. And people were shocked and fascinated all at once.
“This thing right here … OK, I’m going to be honest. It is a vibrator. It is a vibrator!” Toni said. “But I call it the face tingler. It tingles the muscles in my face and get them activated and working.”
The “Un-Break My Heart” singer especially loves working the vibrator under her eyes, “because they’re really important” and “tell your age a little bit.”
“I just take this and get the little ball here,” she said as she continued with her demo.
“Sometimes, I put it inside the freezer to get it really cold. And I just rub it and it just activates all the muscles.”
“Get them together. We’re working today, we’re going to be cute today,” said Toni, who has just released her new single, “Dance,” which will be part of her upcoming 10th studio album, “Spell My Name,” later this month.
The vibrator has three speed settings, she related. “But I wouldn’t put it on three,” she jested.
But before anyone gets any funny thoughts, Toni insisted that the vibrator touches only her face. “I haven’t used it on anything else! Honestly. FYI,” she quipped.
