Whether you are trend driven or simply want to experiment with bigger lips, attaining naturally plump lips is not as hard on your bank account as you think. Kylie Jenner’s transformative lip job became a signature part of her look and business. Our very own Bollywood princess, Priyanka Chopra, faced backlash in her early days to a lip job. However, today we see every girl dreaming of fuller plumper lips. Don’t want to make a commitment to fillers or a lip job? Here is your guide to the faux filler.
Often suffering from dry or peeling lips? The first step to healthy plump lips is to exfoliate. But, too much of a good thing can do more harm sometimes. So I exfoliate my lips with a lip scrub or a natural mixture of brown sugar and honey once a week only. (P.S. you can get a discount on all Dot & Key products with my code – ANI10.)
Hydration is key! Stop licking your lips, it dries them. Apply a non-irritating lip balm with SPF 30, natural aloe vera and drink lots of water regularly to get hydrated and fuller lips. I also dab some cold pressed castor oil on my lips every other night to lock in the moisture.
Collagen has been proven to improve elasticity and help reduce lines on lips. As you age, your body produces lesser collagen. Hence, utilising a collagen based lip cream or mask at night is significant in achieving plump lips.
Lip Care Secret: Matte lipsticks last long as they are drying. Use them sparingly and instead opt for tinted lip balms or sticks with Vitamin E or natural oils for hydrated plump lips.
A good lip gloss has the power to make your lips look plumper. The shine (without the sparkle) accentuates the fuller part of your lips, making them appear larger. I was recently gifted the Dior Lip Maximiser and it has changed my life.
