14 Beauty Trends That Are Downright Dangerous

Reader's Digest Logo By Jenn Sinrich of Reader's Digest | Slide 1 of 14: When Kylie Jenner, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, denied the use of lip fillers to achieve her ever-expanding pout, and instead attributed her look to the use of suction cup-like devices, the social media world went haywire. Seemingly overnight, impressionable young teens eager to get lips like Kylie started the #KylieJennerChallenge, which involved artificially plumping their lips with the use of a shot glass or 2-liter soda bottleneck. While this method can, indeed, make the lips appear even twice the size, it's seriously dangerous, according to experts. 'The process can cause permanent tissue damage, broken blood vessels, and even numbness or loss of function around the mouth,' warns Melanie D. Palm, MD, San Diego-based dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon. 'It may seem like a silly and fun prank, but it can have permanent and blatantly visible side effects on your face.' Find out if lip-plumping products actually work.
