eauty trends always come and go. While some beauty trends are here to stay, other trends disappear quickly.
Everything from makeup to skincare. Korean Beauty is an example of a trend that is here to stay. Women have accepted Korean beauty products with open arms, because of the benefits they offer. The problem with beauty trends is even though they don’t stick around for too long, they sometimes end up leaving a negative impression.
The latest beauty trend is ‘Appetite Suppressant’ lollipops. Made by the company Flat Tummy Tea Co. Flat Tummy Teas have been around for years and the company sponsors women all over Instagram for promoting their teas that are guaranteed to give you the flat tummy you have been longing for.
Now Flat Tummy Tea Co. has come out with this new product and they asked none other than, Kim Kardashian to promote the new product.
Kim posted to her Instagram with a photo and a caption promoting the new product with the caption,
“You guys… @flattummyco just dropped a new product. They’re Appetite Suppressant Lollipops and they’re literally unreal. They’re giving the first 500 people on their website 15% OFF so if you want to get your hands on some… you need to do it quick! #suckit,” Unfortunately Kim took down her post not too long after being scrutinized.
The problem with this trend is the thousands of young girls and women who admire Kim Kardashian and look up to her. The women who aspire to be her and are influenced by whatever she does. Actress of The Good Place, Jameela Jamil spoke out against Kim and she had a few choice words for her,
“No. You terrible and toxic influence on young girls. I admire their mother’s branding capabilities, she is an exploitative but innovative genius, however, this family makes me feel actual despair over what women are reduced to”
Flat Tummy Tea Co. says that the lollipops contain an ingredient that will suppress your appetite for hours, making you feel full when you might feel hungry. “clinically proven safe active ingredient extracted from natural plants.”
Suppressing your appetite when you can fuel it with delicious nutrient-packed food is better than sucking on a lollipop. Why eat a candy that suppresses your appetite when you can just eat delicious food? Certain things shouldn’t be allowed within the beauty industry.
