There´s no need to undergo surgery to have full lips (or at least to look like you do). We bring you 4 tips that can help you change that.
There are many women who want to have full and sensual lips in a natural way. If you want to add volume to your lips, but do not want fillers or injections, you can use several alternatives. From scrub to a homemade plumping product to cosmetic tricks, you can learn how to plump your lips naturally.
1. Exfoliate your lips with a sugar and honey scrub
Mix a tablespoon of sugar with a teaspoon of honey or coconut oil and stir. Gently rub the mixture on your lips for 2-3 minutes and rinse with water. Granulated white sugar will be more exfoliating, while brown sugar will be gentler and suitable for sensitive skin. This will help remove dead skin that builds up over time by stimulating circulation on the lips.
2. Brush your lips with your toothbrush
After you've finished brushing your teeth, rub the brush across your lips. Brush your lips lightly in small circular motions to improve blood flow. This will temporarily thicken them. Don't combine this with lip scrub with sugar. It's possibly too much and it can further chap your lips.
3. Condition your lips with a lip balm
Keeping your lips moisturized is a great way to enhance the natural shape of your lips because they will appear thicker than dry ones. Always carry a lip balm and apply a generous amount each time your lips feel dry. Always apply your lip balm every time you finish exfoliating your lips. For best results, use an unflavored lip balm. If it's flavored, you may feel an urge to lick your lips more often, which will lead to more chapping.
4. Take water and vitamins
It is a great way to naturally plump your lips. Drink at least 8 to 12 glasses of water a day and take a vitamin complex daily. Better health will give you a natural glow, even on your lips. Each glass should hold approximately 8 oz. (240 ml). Don't consume too many vitamins. In this case, more is not always better. When in doubt, check with your doctor to see how many you should take. Wait for the water and vitamins to take effect. You may not see results right away, especially with vitamins.
