Face Taping, what is the beauty craze that is popular on social media (but it would be good not to imitate)

It’s called Face Taping and it’s the beauty hack that is becoming popular on social networks. It consists of applying adhesive tape to the face to counteract the appearance of wrinkles, the only pity that it could endanger the health of the skin if it is not done by professionals.

The most popular craze on social media for some time now? That of posting tutorials and beauty hacks in the hope of going viral. Some users limit themselves to giving advice capable of simplifying daily life, others try to give birth to real fashions, it is a pity that the proposed tricks do not always prove to be 100% reliable. This is the case, for example, with the lubricant used instead of the face primer, which used regularly could damage the skin. Another “do it yourself” method has recently emerged that it would be better not to imitate. Is called Face Taping and, despite the social success, it could put your health at risk: here’s why.

What is Face Taping

Face Taping is a non-invasive aesthetic remedy that allows you to stretch the facial muscles by slowing down the effects of skin aging in a natural way. What is it about? When applying adhesive tape to certain areas of the face and neck. Thanks to this taping, which is usually used for rehabilitation and curative purposes in physiotherapy, you avoid contracting the muscles of the face (which normally happens with expressions and stress). The goal is to act on the drainage, so as to reduce swelling, bags and dark circles. The only small drawback? Do-it-yourself does not always get the desired results.

Why Face Taping is dangerous

If not done by expert hands, in fact, Face Taping risks creating injuries to the skin and releasing synthetic substances in the wrong places. Each face has its own needs and the colored patches must be applied according to very specific rules, so it would be good not to replace the professionals after simply watching the tutorials on social media. In any case, Face Taping does not promise anything miraculous: as we age we must learn to accept the signs of aging, even if it is possible to combat the appearance of wrinkles with targeted cosmetic products capable of protecting the epidermal barrier.
