Don’t try some of the beauty trends on Tik Tok!
Since the quarantine, TikTok has become one of the applications that is booming immediately.
Not only is it a place for dancing, but sometimes TikTok is also full of interesting beauty hacks and tricks to try.
But apparently, some of the hacks and tips that exist, are actually dangerous to do.
Well, here are some dangerous beauty trends on TikTok to try that you shouldn’t try:
- 15 Minutes Cleansing Oil or Balm
Some time ago, there was a viral activity of cleaning the face using cleansing oil or balm for 15 minutes.
But apparently, this is dangerous to do.
Deep cleansing using cleansing oil can trigger open pores, if not balanced with proper care, it will become an opening for bacteria to enter.
In fact, this technique is also dangerous if done by those of you who have sensitive skin, because it can cause irritation.
- Using The Ordinary Peeling Solution
The Ordinary is one of the most sought after skin care products, one of its products is The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution.
The product went viral again because of TikTok!
In fact, The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% does not have a license to circulate in Indonesia.
This is because the contents of AHA and BHA that are allowed to circulate freely are those whose content is below 10%.
In fact, there are some who experience chemical burns on their faces as a result of using this Peeling Solution.
- Vaginal Bleaching
One of the trends that I think is the most dangerous on TikTok, is vaginal bleaching using baking soda and almond oil, even lemon!
This trend went viral with the hashtag #skinbleaching on TikTok, which garnered up to 1.6 million views.
In fact, this activity is highly discouraged because it is destructive, both mentally and physically.
Besides being able to cause irritation to the vaginal part, this raises the issue of colorism again.
- Latex Paint as Face Mask
Yup, using latex paint as a face mask! It really doesn’t make sense.
But maybe people just do anything for the sake of being viral, right, without thinking about the effect on yourself?
In fact, there are those who use up to 2 layers of latex paint as a face mask because they feel the ‘mask’ is not thick enough.
The result? As you might expect, the latex paint is difficult to remove from the face, and it causes severe irritation that causes red spots on the face.
So, you shouldn’t try some of the dangerous TikTok trends above.
Even if you want to do this, you need further consultation or research on the content.
