TikTok is an absolute gold mine when it comes to makeup and skincare hacks. Many of these hacks involve viral products TikTok users tried and loved. The best part about this treasure trove of discoveries is that they require very little effort on your part. Whether that’s a lip-plumping gloss here or a DIY scrub there, these clever little tricks are easy and most importantly, don’t cost a fortune.

However, not all hacks are created equal and definitely, not all hacks are worth trying. A similar hack is also going viral on social media and endorsed by the non-other than ‘The party girl’ Dananeer. While her fans might be in awe of how genius and easy this DIY hack looks.

The concoction is a mixture of vaseline, cinnamon powder and chilli powder. While vaseline and cinnamon don’t pose any undesirable effects – the same can not be said about chilli powder.

Meanwhile, the same desirable effects can take a turn for the worst if someone starts getting an allergic reaction. In such instances, there can be excessive swelling on the lips, formation of blisters, irritation and burning sensation.

While this hack might be appropriate for people with a high tolerance for spicy foods. It is extremely dangerous and the consequences can be grave.
