Teens Have Invented The Best Form Of Self Care And It's Slime

Teens Have Invented The Best Form Of Self Care And It's Slime

Remember seeing commercials for Floam when you were a kid? It and other kinds of slimes are back in a big way with teens—but this time, it's all homemade, and colored like Tumblr aesthetic in a jar, and used for anxiety relief and ASMR. Basically, it's the most Generation Z thing I've ever seen, and I love it.

Something about perfectly manicured hands mixing bead- and glitter-filled, squishy slime has the same calming effect on me as other weird internet trends like ASMR videos (or, if you're more disgusting than me—no shame in that—pimple popping videos).

But more than those videos, you just kind of want to reach through the screen and start playing. It's like the first time you saw a fidget spinner—even if intellectually you know the whole thing was stupid, you definitely wanted to try one, right?

Recipes for slime are also all over the internet, and it's pretty easy to make—your basic recipe just calls for glue, borax, water, and food coloring.

Finally. Cooking I can get behind.
