A couple months back, everyone on TikTok started drinking chlorophyllin — better known as liquid chlorophyll supplements — which are believed to have therapeutic effects on the body. The bright-green pigment plays a crucial role in photosynthesis (remember seventh grade?) and has demonstrated anecdotal evidence that it helps those looking to boost energy levels or wash out the intestines.
That said, most people online were mainly giving the trend a try to clear up their skin. Heading into a summer where everyone’s determined to look good, chugging plant juice seemed like a low-risk skincare experiment. Only problem? There isn’t any data (yet, at least) to back the hype; according to most dermatologists, drinking chlorophyll isn’t going to vanquish your acne.
