Ever wonder, "How do I get bigger lips?" Here’s what you need to know about plumping your lips, without resorting to injectables.
I, like every other woman, know that fuller lips are a definite sign of youth, so sometimes I wonder, "How can I get fuller lips without surgery?"
Doctor Stacie McClane of Chicago has the answers. According to McClane, you can get fuller lips with just three easy steps, at home or at the doctor’s office.
Three Steps to Beautiful Lips
- Lip Exfoliator
- Lip Plumping Mask
- Lip Plumping Balm
So How Do I Get Bigger Lips?
1. The Lip Exfoliator
It’s important to use a lip exfoliator at the beginning of any lip plumping treatment to get rid of all those skin cells that build up during daily wear and tear and aging. In fact, letting those skin cells just sit there is what contributes to the wrinkly skin on and around your mouth. Dr. McClane uses a lip exfoliator made of citric components like orange and pineapple and an exfoliating device at her office that uses vibrations to remove the dead skin cells, but you can exfoliate your lips at home as well, by using just a toothbrush and a homemade sugar scrub.
2. The Lip Plumping Mask
The mask that Dr. McClane uses for her lip plumping treatment is great because it contains peptides that stimulate collagen in your lips. But, just in case you want to try a mask at home there are some collagen masks that you can buy from the store, or you can even make a lip plumping mask yourself using just a little bit of cinnamon and vaseline.
3. The Lip Plumping Balm
The balm is the final step to a lip plumping treatment because it hydrates the lips and keeps them looking healthy. Dr. McClane’s Lip Plumping Balm contains elements of citrus, just like her exfoliator, because they are naturally occurring which makes the lips and skin feel really great. If you’re looking to find a good lip balm for an at home treatment to make lips fuller, some of the things you can look for in a balm are sunscreen for protection and a petroleum base if you’re looking for shine.
As you can see, it's pretty easy to get fuller, beautiful lips, without diving into lip injectables right away. Whether you want to head to the doctor’s office for a professional lip plumping treatment, or try some do-it-yourself lip plumping methods first, you definitely have some options if you aren't ready for collagen treatments quite yet.
