On social networks, a funny accessory seems to be gaining ground among beauty addicts across the Atlantic. We’ll explain it to you.

We know it well: in many areas, the United States is often one step ahead of the rest of the world. If France has no equal when it comes to skin care, the country of Uncle Sam holds the prize for innovation and gadgets of all kinds. Proof of this is with the new fad that is panicking social networks in recent weeks. On the TikTok platform, many American women film themselves drinking their favorite drink using a hook-shaped straw. Different from traditional circular straws, the latter would minimize the contraction of the muscles of the mouth and thus avoid the formation of wrinkles.

Anti-wrinkle straws: effective?

Sold by different companies who seem to want to ride this strange trend, the anti-wrinkle straw is not unanimous among experts. While some claim that it really helps reduce lip pursing, and therefore slow down the appearance of fine lines, others don’t really see the point of this new gadget. “There is no scientific evidence as to whether anti-wrinkle straws are an effective method for preventing perioral wrinkles. In addition, a slight pursing of the lips is still involved even with these straws,” explains doctor Leah Totton to the “Telegraph”. The simplest tip to delay the effects of time on the skin? Adopt a healthy lifestyle, a calibrated skincare routine and drink directly from the glass.
