Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge



Print page

Teen girls are artificially plumping there lips to look more like the seventeen year old reality television star the daughter of Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner.

Like the Ice Bucket Challenge, taking the Kylie Jenner Challenge is a thing that people do and people are being warned against.These young girls place their lips into the shot glass, then suck the air out of the glass, creating friction. The glass isn’t flexible which means the shot glass can break under all the pressure, causing serious injuries.

Many doctors are concerned with this epidemic.

“The new trend in trying to DIY lip plumping is quite concerning,” Dendy Engelman, a dermatologic surgeon, told Seventeen. “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.”


In my opinion, I don’t think that these young girls should be hurting themselves just to have lips like Kylie Jenner. I feel like there is more behind this challenge than we know. She is born to a family with billions of dollars.  I don’t think she is sucking a a shot glass to make her lips look the way they do. I hate the way the media and the social sites have an impact on the way that these young girls appearances should look.

The core democratic values in this article was life and truth.  Basically every teen girl has an image in their head about the way they should look , and if they don’t look that certain way then they call themself “ugly’,”fat”…any negative you can imagine.  Why cant they just accept themselves as they are ?
