"The lip glue challenge", the new beauty challenge of social networks that worries dermatologists
Enthusiastic followers of social networks, teenagers sometimes let themselves go to challenges that have something to give us cold sweats. After the challenge of the thigh gap which was to starve in order to slim thighs so that they do not touch each other, there was rib cage where the idea was to lose weight enough so to show the bones of the ribcage as some models do on Instagram. The last one was no less frightening, the famous Kylie Jenner lips challenge was meant to to suck lips by sucking using a glass to look like the reality TV star. After four years of more or less innocent beauty challenges, the Internet is back on the heels of crazy and dangerous challenges with the "lip glue challenge".
This new fad mainly affects fervent teenagers worshiping the application Tik Tok (musical application where one films itself to dance or playback) and consists of giving an inflated appearance to the lips to believe in injections. The idea? Spread from the superglue above the upper lip and stick to it so that the latter seems more fleshy. Quickly made aware of this latest fad, dermatologists were quick to sound the alarm in the United States where the challenge is already widespread. Indeed, the glue contains very toxic agents who have absolutely nothing to do on the skin at the risk of declaring very violent allergic reactions. In addition, this product is intended to stick solid materials such as metal or plastic ... We can only imagine the damage of its use on the skin so fragile!
