Hi Klevies! If you are scrolling through social media pages all the time, you must have found some interesting and convincing skincare tips or trends that you want to try. Well, before you do, make sure to double-check the trends. Speaking of DIY skincare, we will now discuss further viral skincare trends on social media!
Mosquito Repellent Lotion for Acne
If you find this hack odd, well, it is! One short video on social media encouraged its viewer to try using mosquito repellent lotion as an acne treatment. Of course, it blew up and became a hot topic for a short while. One thing that we can be sure of, is not to try this at home!
Mosquito repellent lotions contain Diethyltoluamide (DEET) as their main actives. Although it is classified as safe for the skin, it should be known that DEET should not be used on irritated skin. Acne as we know sometimes inflamed and has an open wound, which is why this ingredient is not recommended as it can aggravate skin irritation and even cause breakouts. So, instead of having to take the risk, we’d recommend you just use an actual acne treatment that has been specially formulated with ingredients like Salicylic Acid.
BB Glow Treatment
You may feel familiar with lip and brow embroidery, but have you heard about BB Glow Treatment and how it is still a debatable topic in the beauty industry? This treatment claimed to fade black spots, and brighten the face, to create a naturally smoother facial appearance without makeup. Hmm, it’s quite tempting, isn't it, Klevies?
BB glow treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses a highly effective tinted pigment, applied by using a microneedle to penetrate the skin. Not only can potentially irritate the skin, but this procedure can also increase the risk of allergies, PIE, PIH, damage to the skin barrier, and long-term risks such as cancer if it is not handled by experts. If Klevies has problems with dull skin and dark spots, the Glowing Solution Bundle is probably the best solution you’ve been searching for!
Well, this trend is one of the most popular tips of all, Klevies. The word “DIY” in the viral trend encourages people to believe that they can make skincare from ingredients that are at home raising the assumption that processed products themselves are safer from chemicals than skincare in general.
In fact, apart from the complicated process, it turns out that DIY skincare is not really that special, Klevies. One of the most problematic things about it is the preservatives, especially if you mix skincare by mixing several types of ready-made products. Did you know that preservatives are basically adapted to a certain product formulation and pH?
When you mix several types of products as one DIY skincare, the formulations in each of the ingredients can clash and even become a perfect place for reproducing bacteria. So, there is no guarantee that DIY skincare is safer than skincare that has been specially formulated by experts.
You don’t need to worry though, because all Kleveru products are made without perfume, alcohol, artificial coloring, or silicone, and are paraben-free. It is to ensure the safety of the product before it can even get into your hands. Also, Kleveru products have also been registered with BPOM and Halal MUI.
So Klevies, have you ever considered these trends before?
