TikTok over quarantine has been very helpful when it comes to ideas of stuff to do or clothes to wear. However know there is a large community putting out skincare routines and products to use. I decided to research doctors opinions and one doctor covered four different products and routines that are either not worth it or not good for your skin.

1. DIY Coffee Scrub Masks

Dr. Shah says that Coffee Scrubs are very damaging to the skin because they can cause micro tears across your skin. This is because when you make coffee scrubs from your own house you aren't able to remove certain chemicals like professionals can. Due to that he says DIY masks are bad that doesn't mean the coffee scrub from Lush is bad. The coffee mask from Lush is a better product to use instead because it has all the bad chemicals removed and it's solely the products you need to be used on your face.

2. Jade Rollers

Dr. Shah says that they do nothing for you at all, even though it has been claimed by TikTokers it can be false. These are supposedly don't work even though that are not harmful, they still don't work very well. I personally have used one before and it broke after one push up and my skin felt like it was getting suck when being rolled. Because the rollers aren't very big it doesn't create the circulation that you as a buyer would hope, which creates the false hope by this product.

3. CBD Oil

"Over promising" is the word Dr. Shah and many others have used to describe CBD Oil. Due to the fact that this is a newer product there is little to no research about how to use it on your face and when to use it. Dr. Shah claims that because it is newer the producers are over selling it to more people will buy it to create a bigger following. It also is supposedly to be very damaging the pore and your skin in general. So for now don't use it.

4. DIY Ginger Pore Masks

Just like the DIY Coffee Scrub Masks, this is just as damaging because you are putting a raw substance on your face. Just like the coffee scrub by not taking out certain chemicals it is causing the bad chemicals to create small tears in your skin, which will make your skin worse in the future. Say you by something that has a tad bit of ginger that it okay, but using raw ginger as a pore mask will be very harmful in the end to your skin.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
