Not only does putting so much makeup on your face clog up pores and could make your face break out. Putting 100 layers of shirts or jackets on can be overwhelming for your body. You could overheat, or not be able to take them off. There have even been some cases of people having to get them cut off. So if you do feel like you want to do this challenge, make sure someone if in just in case something goes wrong. 

This challenge is harder for a lot of people to do. It involves knowing people or finding people that speak different languages or have a certain accent. The whole point is for one person to pick a random word and everyone goes around saying that word in the language they speak. It is really interesting to listen to how different or similar each word is pronounced. You can go around multiple times with different words. 

The try not to laugh challenge has been around for so many years yet, it is still a thing today. The whole purpose is very easy. You are shown videos that are supposedly funny and make others laugh.You have to sit there and watch these videos but not show any sign of finding it funny. Sometimes it is impossible to stop yourself from laughing.

You might be thinking about when you did this at your friends house in middle school late at night, or you might be thinking about watching all your favorite youtubers doing it. Well either way, it is still one of the most trending challenges to be made. As many of you might know what it is here is a brief explanation for those who don’t. The yoga challenge is when you find/look up yoga poses for how many people you want (typically it is 1-3 people). You then try and recreate them on your own. This challenge has been shown to be hard considering the people who are demonstrating the poses are professionals and flexible. Most people will set up a timer or video of them and their friends doing them just in case they get it and so they have something to laugh at when they fall. One thing to remember is to stretch before because you don’t want to get hurt.
