Instead, people are using alternate methods or simply using water. As per experts, this trend, especially on the rise among teen boys or young men, can “cause dandruff, stunted hair growth, irritation in the scalp, and, in some extreme cases, deteriorating scalp problems”.

Go Barefoot EverywhereThe rise of the barefoot lifestyle faces medical warnings as experts open up about the dangers of walking shoeless in various public settings. The foot scene from Margot Robbie’s hit film Barbie inspired this trend and prompted people to walk barefoot. Doctors warn that there is a high chance of getting hurt when walking without shoes. This practice can cause serious wounds or infections. 5. Freckle tattoosPeople get freckle tattoos to mimic the natural appearance of the small brown spots on one’s face caused sun exposure. It is a safe cosmetic procedure if a professional performs it in a secure environment. However, some TikTokers took matters into their own hands and tried to achieve this result at home – which caused it to take a dangerous turn. While attempting this trend, some people hurt themselves and ended up in hospital with severe complications – and thousands of dollars in bills.
