There may be some truth to some of these TikTok skin trends. —Vita Daily
Slugging: Slugging involves applying petroleum jelly or a similar occlusive moisturizer all over your face before going to bed. This trend has gained popularity on TikTok because it’s an affordable and effective way to lock in moisture and help improve the skin’s barrier function.
Gua Sha: Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese practice that involves using a flat tool, typically made of jade or rose quartz, to massage and scrape the skin. TikTok users have been showcasing how to use a Gua Sha tool to contour the face and promote lymphatic drainage, which can help reduce puffiness and improve circulation.
Face cupping: Face cupping involves using small silicone cups to suction the skin on your face. This trend has gained popularity on TikTok as a way to boost circulation, promote lymphatic drainage, and temporarily plump up the skin.
DIY skin care: TikTok is full of DIY skin care hacks, from making your own face masks with honey and turmeric to using crushed aspirin as an exfoliant. While some of these hacks may not be suitable for everyone, they can be a fun and affordable way to experiment with different ingredients and find what works for your skin.
60-second face lift: This trend involves applying a layer of hydrating serum to your face, followed by a layer of setting powder, and then quickly removing the powder with a brush or tissue. The idea is that the powder creates a temporary lifting effect, and the serum helps to lock in the results. While this trend may not provide long-term benefits, it can be a fun way to give your skin a quick boost before a special event.
