Sexy lips anyone?
Well yeah, everyone adores Angelina Jolie and Kylie Jenner for their sexy lips but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to be all dumb about it!
Last week Twitter fans went all nuts (including my daughter!) about sucking glasses and bottles for the #kyliejennerchallenge. If you think of doing the same thing, well you better check this out first!
This is what they did: They locked the glass/bottle over their mouth and sucked it for a good 2 minutes. What it does is create an airlock over the mouth, which increases the blood flow and causes the lips to swell, similar to the way certain sex toy pumps work.
A cosmetic surgeon warns people against trying it, as the lips may turn blue from infection and lead to the loss of sensation.
An example case where sexy lips went wrong:
Yrja Ás Baldvinsdottir, 18, and her sister, Birgitta Ás, from the Icelandic capital Reykjavik, were left with swollen and blue bruised lips after testing the trick at home. Writing on Facebook, Yrja As said: ‘I wanted to warn people against do-it-yourself lip expansion but was really surprised and shocked that it ended up being something that loads of people were copying.’
Speaking about the method, which involves sucking into the lid of a bottle, she said: ‘I just wanted to try it and see what they would look like, I’ve never done it before, and I won’t be doing it again. It was very, very painful. My lips turned blue. But after we put our photo on the popular BeautyTips Facebook page we’ve seen a number of girls copying us.’
Cosmetic surgeon Pordiis Kjartansdottir said she had never heard of the DIY method before, but ‘I can definitely say that this would be dangerous even just to try it, and especially if somebody does it more than once,’ she said. The lips turned blue because blood fills up and they could easily become infected and lose all sensation.
But they were still going for it. Most of them ended up with bursting lips. Creepy? Yes.
It can also affect one’s speech and for some, it just left them with regretful blubbering. Girls please, don’t act like you didn’t know this was going to happen!
Sexy ain’t about how you look (or how annoyingly thick your lips are).
Sexy is all about how you carry yourself. Yup! Nothing beats a sexy personality 🙂
Still keen on trying?
