SkinTok Skincare Tips That Actually Work

As if TikTok wasn’t already the most popular social media platform on the planet, the rise of its latest hashtag, #SkinTok has pioneered a newfound obsession amongst users. 

Once exclusive to catchy lyric-miming videos and carefully constructed dance routines, TikTok is now a virtual treasure trove of recommendations – on the search for your next holiday destination? TikTok’s got you covered. Need recommendations for a new restaurant in your area? Look no further. 

TikTok truly knows how to keep us hooked, one hashtag at a time and as users around the globe become obsessed with scrolling the never-ending streams of videos on the app, TikTok is positioning itself as a new type of search engine – and users are taking full advantage of it! 

As more hashtags rally up millions of views, SkinTok is rapidly taking reign of the roster. But what is SkinTok, and should we really believe the ‘facts’ we are being told?

Introducing SkinTok

In the beginning, SkinTok was merely a hashtag. However, as the query amassed more attention, SkinTok has quickly become a community; one developed unintentionally for skinfluencers, skincare gurus and fresh-faced fanatics alike.

Fuelling an unprecedented obsession for all things skincare, SkinTok has become a hub for top tricks, treatments, and trends. From product reviews to DIY dream skin, the SkinTok section of the app is seemingly the hashtag to follow for anyone wanting to level-up their skincare game and achieve that enviable glow.

Aside from attracting professionals and dermatologists, the popular hashtag has also enticed the likes of the average skincare enthusiasts who have more questions to ask in relations to the videos being shared. 

So, whether you’re a dedicated TikTok aficionado or a newcomer to the side of SkinTok and looking to join the fun, there are still some things you need to know. For example, do you remember as a child when your parents would tell you to never trust strangers (or perhaps never to talk to strangers, but still, they’re the same thing…) – it’s kind of the same on the internet. 

Just because a stranger on TikTok tells you that toothpaste belongs on your face instead of in your mouth – it doesn’t mean you should listen to them. In this guide to SkinTok, we’ll tell you what SkinTok skincare tips work, and which you should avoid. Whilst skincare can be a long and experimental trial and error period, we don’t want you to fall into the hole of SkinTok misinformation and come out the other end with irreparable skin damage.

Here’s your SkinTok cheat sheet to our top three favourite treatments.

The SkinTok Dos

Slugging

Would you guys try #slugging ? 🤭

We’ve covered slugging previously on our blog before here at Seventy Hyal 2000, however it’s a SkinTok favourite that is loved by thousands – including us!

Racking up impressive 1B views (and counting!) on TikTok alone, slugging is an innovative skincare technique that promises clear, glowy skin. The trend involves applying a heavy-duty emollient like petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on the face. A thick layer of product is applied as the last step of your night-time skincare routine, working to seal in all the skincare products that you’ve used prior, while helping to prevent moisture loss.

The technique gets its name from the shine left on the face after applying a thick, moisturising layer.

BHA’s

BHA’s have always been popular amongst skincare fanatics but if you’re a newbie to skincare – the SkinTok corner of the app has the answers you’re looking for. 

BHA’s, more formally known as beta hydroxy acids are commonly found in the likes of cleansers, gels and chemical peels amongst other skincare products and have been noted to provide amazing results for concerns such as acne and skin ageing. 

Moreover, BHAs are oil soluble, meaning they can penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers due to the natural oils and sebum that exists deep within the skin. This is why BHAs are ideal for people with oily and acne-prone skin. Salicylic acid is the most common BHA – with anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, this makes salicylic acid an effective treatment to treat acne, for example.

One of the most popular BHAs trending on SkinTok at the moment is the Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant – renowned for its ability to help alleviate skin texture, and we’re here for the hype!

Injectable skincare is the latest craze to take SkinTok by storm, especially Seventy Hyal 2000. Because injectable skincare takes a different approach to generic skincare, as more users learn of the skin-enhancing benefits of the hyaluronic acid injectables, more are opting for these treatments over six-step routines.

Seventy Hyal 2000 is a bio-stimulating, injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) skin booster that aims to improve hydration levels within the skin. Seventy Hyal also works to simultaneously stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.

As we age, we lose approximately 1% of our hyaluronic acid stores each year after the age of 30. Thus, resulting in fine lines and loss of facial volume. Seventy Hyal 2000 treats the physiological depletion of HA within the skin via infiltration back into the skin’s dermis. Ultimately, Seventy Hyal is the perfect skin rejuvenation treatment to improve skin texture and skin laxity whilst adding gentle volume for a youthful look.

Are you following the Seventy Hyal 2000 trend onSkinTok, because I know we are!
