Ever heard of slugging?
Yes, that was the same reaction I made when I heard of this ‘slugging’ as it relates to skincare. I thought it had something to do only with baseball.
Skincare is one of those industries that is constantly growing and it is up to skincare professionals like myself and beauty enthusiast to stay abreast on whats happening.
Slugging is the new trend taking place of the ever so popularized ‘Korean Skincare’ trend.
An example of an occlusive product would be vaseline. If you have sensitive skin or acne prone skin I would avoid putting vaseline on your face as it can clog your pores.
The actual term ‘slugging’ which is trending on TikTok, has to do with how shiny your skin is after applying your ‘slugging’ products.
Imagine a ‘dewy’ look. If this is a look that you favor here is the best way to ‘slug’.
- Washing with a gentle cleanser
- Using a hydrating serum
- Followed by a humectant-based moisturizer
- Then applying a thin layer of a retinoid
- And finally, you can use then Vaseline or occlusive moisturizer on top for oily or acne-prone skin.
So Musers, are you getting into the ‘slugging’ trend?
