Skin Experts Warn TikTokers Not To Slug


Chattanooga, Tennessee—

If you’re looking for dewy skin, the TikTok craze known as “slugging” might appeal to you…but skin experts warn that the beauty craze could actually cause acne.

Slugging, which involves covering your face with petroleum jelly before going to bed, locks in moisture overnight for a glowing complexion. However, skin experts warn that this also blocks natural oils from being released, which can result in clogged pores.

For this reason, slugging might not be suited for all skin types, particularly those with oily skin who are already acne-prone.
