Skin-trapping is the newest thirst-trap trend, and the only one worth participating in
Ya’ll think you’re slick, but I know what’s up
by Ari Bines
Every time we pack our faces down with foundation, concealer and a metric fuckton of Laura Mercier finishing powder until it passes for white face, our pores are howling in pain.
Once it's time to remove the makeup mask, we put our skin through cleansing bootcamp — but instead of keeping skincare simple, girls on Instagram are now using their routine to double as a thirst-trap, and I'm pissed at myself for not thinking of it first! Try and keep up while we go through the genius of this together:
The key is to werk that towel, hoe
make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty #quotestoliveby #longquote #quoteoftheday #quotesaboutlife #wine #drinking #drinkingwine #cigarette #toweltuesday #towel #balcony #smoke #gucci #prada #versace #brunette #caltycugar
Typically, skin-trapping consists of a natural face and a drying head of wet hair, but the real stars of the skin-trap is a towel or robe. The way in which you wear said towel or robe is entirely up to the high-maintenance hoe wearing it — but it does have to be a lil sexy.
The trap doesn't really take much work other than being fully naked underneath and leaving little to the imagination hidden behind a sheet of terry cloth. It's just enough nasty to make sure the DMs come in hot.
Skin-trapping usually occurs in the bedroom
Casual dress. It’s a casual wrap dress feeling like a fucking wrap in it . ?

A neat bedroom is necessary. If you're going to show off your clean and clear skin, then naturally your room should reflect the daily skin regimen.
Don't just rely on that body to get your follower count up. Make sure the skin-trap puts your bedroom on display. Your cleanly selfie combined with your dirty act is the juxtaposition to get the proper amount of attention you deserve.
…And obviously it works in any bathroom
Laying the skin-trap in the bathroom is where I think girls get the best angle. It's a better location to fully get into your hoetation. Your body is wet and slippery, there's steam everywhere, and you're alone without any risk of being walked in on.
And even beyond that…
The great thing about the skin thirst trap is that it's subtle…but without being subtle at all. Anyone viewing the trap knows you just got out the shower, so it doesn't look like you've just spent two to three hours in a steamy mirror taking pics. Effortless, you know?
And other skincare traps are just out of this world
There are some girls who take their skin-traps to a different level and use washcloths a loin cloth to conceal about one square inch of genitals. Some think this is regular thirst trap queen looking to get a rise out of her ex, but in reality it's really just a girl who wants people to see how well she applied her body lotion. Well, that's at least how I'd try to fool my friends anyway.
Whether you're sporting a low-cut robe or a barely-there towel, the skin-trap is bound to work. Anyone lurking on your Instagram will know that you were naked only a few minutes ago, so you're flying incognito whenever you decide to post. Happy trapping, bitches.
