Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge: Worth the Risk?

Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge: Worth the Risk?

Regan Russell, Staff Reporter

For several months now, a new fad has swept over the internet called the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge. Videos of this challenge have taken over YouTube and Vine, and pictures of the trials have been posted across the internet. The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge is an attempt for people to try to replicate the luscious lips of model Kylie Jenner. While it can be very amusing, this challenge has been revealed to have some serious risks. The question remains: Is the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge REALLY worth it?

There have been many  previous challenges on the internet that people have done; like the Ice Bucket Challenge, the Cinnamon Challenge, the Salt and Ice challenge, the Saltine Challenge, and many more. But none of these have resulted in the harm that the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge has. This challenge has resulted in bruised and cut lips, and can even cause a person’s lips to lose all sensation, causing it to become infected due to the amount of blood filling up in the lips. Doctors have said that the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge is in fact dangerous and should be avoided.

While this fun and entertaining challenge is a common activity that many teens have been attempting lately, the facts have proven that it is dangerous and can cause some serious injuries. So, is it worth the risk?

In my opinion, I can see why this would be a fun thing to do and try. I like to try the new and popular things just as much as the next person. However, this is one I haven’t tried, and have no desire to try. From the beginning, it just didn’t sound fun to me and I knew there had been cases where people were injured, which of course I wanted to avoid.

Considering all of the risks, the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge isn’t worth the risk. While it might be fun and amusing, it can still cause harm. If you do try it, be smart and safe and remember the risks it entails.
