The Kylie Jenner Challenge: A Big Mistake

Don’t be foolish and cause permanent damage to your face!

A new trend is sweeping world, causing lip deformities, swelling, bleeding, and sending teens to emergency rooms all over the world. The Kylie Jenner Challenge.

If you don’t know what The Kylie Jenner challenge is, it’s when you take a shot glass, pill bottle, yogurt container, or anything similar, and you stick your lips in and suck on it for several minutes to an hour. You then pull out and it’s supposed to make your lips pump like kylie Jenner. However, the consequences to this challenge are horrific.

It can cause bleeding, swelling, deformities, stitches, bruising, or scars. In some extreme cases, the shot glass has shattered under pressure, causing a girl to end up in the hospital with several stitches.

Doctors have warned teens against this challenge, “Not only can significant pain, swelling, and bruising result from these suction techniques, but there is potential risk for scarring and permanent disfigurement with repeated attempts.” says a dermatologic surgeon told the Washington Post.

Even though being warned against it, young girls-even younger than Kylie Jenner and some men still continually try this challenge, posting there attempts on social media, such as twitter and facebook with, #KylieJennerChallenge.

People who want plumper lips usually turn to some types of lipstick or liner that naturally do it, or plastic surgery.  “I am against young women — who aren’t fully developed (physically or mentally) — making uninformed decisions that could change their looks forever. If you’re looking to try this big-lip trend, I recommend doing so by overlining your mouth with lip liner (that’s what Kylie claims she does!).” a woman who prefers a lip liner called Candylipz, told Washington Post.

The Kylie Jenner Challenge may seem cool or fun, but the results are terrible, most of the time all attempts end badly. Taking the challenge is a bad idea, and it will make you rethink your decision.
