Question: hey everybody. I’m a guy and I was snapchatting my gf and she dared me to do the Kylie Jenner lip challenge. Now I knew it was bad but a few websites said that a Pringles can will make your lips puff up without bruises or anything and no permanent damage. So I grabbed a Pringles can and sucked. Well my face looked hilarious but it’s like not going away. What should I do to make my lips go back to normal? And I don’t want any bs saying that its irreversible. I just want some advice. I can’t go to school tomorrow looking like this. Thanks
Use a cold, wet tissue or toilet paper or something and put it on your lips and apply firm pressure evenly over your lips for 10-20 minutes. After that, use cover up or foundation or concealer to cover up any red marks. For absolute fails, use plenty of cover up and follow the above rules but add ice inside the tissue. Use germoline on the red areas before you follow these steps for best results. After cover up has been applied, use lip balm to sooth your lips and most of the swelling will have gone down by the time you wake up. I just used this method and it worked perfectly (and I have extremely fair skin!!!)…….. And never do this challenge again!!
Answer 2:The science behind Kylie Jenner lip challenge is horrifying.
Once you’ve made the unwise decision to load that shot glass onto your lips and suck, you’re inducing negative pressure from the suctioning. This causes “vessel engorgement,” meaning your blood vessels fill with blood, setting off an inflammatory cascade of chemicals (think histamine and leukotrienes.) These chemicals then flood your soft tissue, and voila! You’re swollen. If you suck hard enough, you’ll break the fragile blood vessels around that area, and that’s what results in bruising. If you’re fair skinned, you’re even more sensitive.
There really is not much you can do, but dont worry, over time it will go down and back to normal. This may take a few days to a week. If nothing has changed in a week you may have and a reaction, so see a doctor (but this is VERY unlikely). I suggests you suck in your lips for school tomorrow – or fake sick… But you should see a change in your lips by morning. Best of luck
