When it comes to my pastimes, the list can be narrowed down to binge-watching Netflix shows, scrolling through TikTok, and skincare. But don’t you just love it when two of your worlds collide? Now when I scroll through TikTok, I’ve been noticing a ton of skincare trends I’ve been dying to try, so let’s look at some of the big ones.
Take pictures I wanna see your results!! Also pls watch my video about appropriation & Gua Sha. ((& how good is my friend Kahiem’s music 🥺💗))
The Gua Sha is a tool not unlike a jade or rose quartz roller. It is flat and has a curved M shape which makes it easy to use for your jawline and other curves of your face. This skincare routine, based on traditional Chinese medicine, has been trending for a while now, so I recently purchased one and will be working on a longer-form article on my results. It is important that while participating in this skincare routine, that you purchase your gua sha from a traditional Chinese practitioner or online shop (like this one) so you are respectfully taking part in this, rather than allowing big corporations to profit off of it.
This The Ordinary peeling solution has gotten so popular, especially for those who have acne and acne scars. While it seems to do the trick in helping clear these scars and promote softer and healthier skin, it has to be used in moderation. Many dermatologists on TikTok say that it is vital to use a moisturizer with the product so it does not damage your skin and that you should always spot test before using it. It is also recommended that you first start using it in short, 5-minute increments and work your way up. This one has some great results, but be sure to do the research and use it carefully.
Obsessed is an understatement for my first time using FOREO @foreo_official #UFO2 smart mask – Available at @meccabeauty
This Foreo UFO 2 is a smart face mask device. Yeah, you heard me right. You pick what mask you would like to use, clip it into the device, and then it uses thermotherapy, cryotherapy, T-Sonic pulsations, and eight LED lights to enhance the efficacy of the face mask. This highly-rated product is like bringing the spa home. While it has a hefty price tag in comparison to many of the other products on this list, the reviews on Sephora’s website and on TikTok state that it is definitely worth it.
If you haven’t seen the green water trend yet, I would be shocked. This has been everywhere with reviewers raving about how it’s given them clearer skin and even helped with weight loss. While there is no scientific proof that drinking liquid chlorophyll can do any of these things specifically, it is true that it’s an overall anti-inflammatory. Many people wonder if it’s just the increase of drinking water that’s helping people’s skin, and others suggest that eating/drinking vegetables will have the same effect, if not better.
I’ve seen so many mixed reviews about this product. While some TikTok users love it and swear that it makes their skin glow, others don’t like that it uses alcohol and fragrance. One thing we know for certain is that this recipe is not 100% clean, since alcohol and fragrance are on the ingredient list. Nevertheless, the AHA and glycolic acid in this sleeping mask are great for keeping your skin hydrated.
These Isle of Paradise self-tanning drops are great for tanning, especially for those who want to tan their face. All of the videos I have seen about these drops give rave reviews about how well they work. It’s very important to blend them in around the hairline and on the neck, or else there will be major streaks and lines. Also, don’t forget to wash your hands after using them!
