Here's your latest dangerous, idiotic, social media trend similar to when people were eating Tide Pods.
It seems that the newest trend on TikTok is covering your face in hot wax, and then peeling it off as one giant, colorful mask.
It sounds painful, and it probably is . . . but that's not the only problem. The skin on your face is sensitive, so you could cause some real problems by doing this according to dermatologists.
One dermatologist in the U.K. says, quote, "Waxing is a traumatic process for the skin, especially sensitive areas around the eyes . . . those can become inflamed and irritated, and tiny pimples or pus-filled bumps could develop as a result."
The hot wax is poured on someone’s face. It covers one’s mouth and neck and often times it's males completing this challenge. Sometimes it fills your ears and nostrils. The wax is left on one’s face before it is removed. And the claim is that it “removes unsightly hairs and leaves the skin refreshed.”
Refreshed or painful? I honestly think someone will mess this up and take off somebody's eyelashes or eyebrows as well.
Check it out for yourself.
