Sucking creates negative pressure and fills your blood vessels. This creates decidedly non-sexy swelling, and can also break the vessels and produce bruising. If you only suck for 30 seconds, the effects should be minor, but if your sucking drags on for over a minute, you could suffer gross discoloration for a couple of weeks, or even long-term damage in the form of pigmentation and scarring. And you don't end up looking like Kylie Jenner, no matter how well it goes.
There are plenty of safe and affordable ways to plump up your lips if you feel the need to look like you've been stung by bees, but in a sexy way. Shot glasses, meanwhile, should only be used to pound back whiskey and mutter about what a day you've had to your disinterested cat, the way the manufacturers intended.
Charcoal Masks Hurt Like Hell And Irritate Your Skin More Than They Help
Most facial creams and masks wash or peel off with about as much resistance as wet cardboard.

Yes, gluing charcoal to your face and then ripping it off does remove dirt, blackheads, and other gunk. But you're also taking off a layer of protective skin and hair, leaving you vulnerable to irritation, discoloring, hypopigmentation, permanently enlarged pores, and scarring. Despite Instagram-friendly motivational slogans, if you're feeling pain in your beauty regimen, it's not because you're giving 210 percent to create the best you; you're just doing it wrong. Some people have even ripped their damn eyebrows off.
