Lauren Jennie wanted to try out a ‘healthy’ and ‘all natural’ face mask using ingredients she had around the house — it didn’t turn out so great.
Jennie noticed that her face had been breaking out more than usual, as she explained to her TikTok followers:
“I’d been breaking out all over my face, but mainly across my lip line, and I really don’t want to squeeze them as it’s so so sore. So me being me, I’m researching ways to get rid of it and help my skin out. And I come across this DIY turmeric face mask that I could literally go downstairs and make right now in my kitchen. So I did.”
Jennie quickly realized that the Turmeric face mask was not the best of ideas. The hand she used to apply the face mask quickly began to turn a bright orange/yellow color and by that point — she knew she had made a bad decision.
Worried, she voiced concern that she would end up “resembling the moon” once the mask was washed off. And that is precisely what happened. To make matters worse, she was supposed to go grocery shopping with her father almost immediately after trying out the face mask.
In the video, Jennie stated “I’m really hoping that make-up is going to cover this” while her sister laughed uncontrollably somewhere off-camera. Fortunately for Jennie, some of the yellow’s vibrancy started to fade after several scrubbings. But, it was still pretty yellow and she had to accept the fact that “this is the best it’s going to get.”
The hilarious video quickly went viral on social media, gaining millions of views and hundreds of comments from viewers everywhere.
