Ever since the hashtag : #kyliejennerchallenge went viral, many young adults are jumping on the bandwagon and doing the challenge themselves. In this disturbing new trend teenagers aspire to have the same plump lips as Kylie Jenner from Keeping Up With the Kardashians. To accomplish the same lip “plumpness” kids are putting their lips inside a small container and sucking as hard as possible for a prolong period of time.
The sucking temporarily causes lip swelling and in many cases bruising around the mouth area, as you can judge by the images below. Clearly, medical experts advice against this practice and hope that it will stop soon rather than later.
