TikTok is a social platform where people of all ages can post their recipes, skincare routines, useful tricks, skits and more. When we talk about skin, it's good to know that this topic should be approached with the utmost caution because skin is a very personal thing, so listening to online advice is not always the smartest thing to do. But you don't have to worry when it comes to these five tips we've dug up in the depths of TikTok – they're truly fantastic!
1) USING RETINOL ON THE NECK AND CHEST
In addition to being applied to the face, retinol can be applied alone to the neck and décolletage. By applying retinol to the neck, you solve the problem of lines and wrinkles that are created due to aging or excessive looking at a laptop, cell phone, etc. (the so-called tech neck), and by using it on the décolleté, you solve lines from sleeping or wearing a bra.
2) APPLYING THE FACE ROUTINE - ON THE HANDS
The skin on your hands is thin, and if it's dry or lacks tone, applying your skin care routine to your hands as well (especially SPF protection!) protects it from blemishes and premature signs of aging. No one will be able to tell your age from your hands anymore!
3) CHECK THE ORDER IN WHICH TO APPLY THE PRODUCTS TO YOUR FACE
Place a small amount of each product you use in your nighttime or morning routine on a clean surface, such as a mirror or board, in the order you would apply them to your skin. Then tilt your chosen surface and observe how the products react, that is, which product leaks the fastest and which one leaks the slowest. Apply the products that leak the fastest before the others!
4) RELAX YOUR FACE USING A FACE ROLLER OR GUA SHA STONE
This is ideal advice for those who want to tighten the skin of the face or reduce puffiness and redness. Facial roller and gua sha stone help with the first signs of aging and wake up the facial skin. Massage techniques using these tools can easily be found in videos on YouTube or, of course, on TikTok.
5) REMEMBER HOW TO USE SPF PROTECTION CORRECTLY
Many TikTok creators remind us how to apply SPF properly; You should apply SPF every two hours, especially if you are exposed to the sun. SPF is applied all year round – yes, even when it's raining. Finally, the amount of product that fits on two fingers is enough for the whole face, and two more fingers of product are needed for the ears and neck.
