Who doesn’t want luscious lips? Obviously we pay attention to our lips, but just using lipstick, lip gloss, lip balms isn’t enough to get beautiful lips. Many women desire lips that are full and luscious, yet few are knowledgeable about the things they can do to get what they want.
However, the lips you want can be yours with little effort or money. Below are tips that may help you get beautiful lips.
Get a good baby brush with very soft bristles and exfoliate your lips gently every day. Remove those dead cells of the extra peeling layer. Don’t use your regular brush. It is very harsh on the super sensitive skin of your lips. It may injure you too. It is one of the important steps that most women don’t do at all. You can use your regular toothpaste and brush to exfoliate but it will dry your lips. Don’t forget to moisturize after exfoliating the dead cells.
But if you are not comfortable with this method, you can use a smooth napkin or just a cotton cloth instead of a brush. Just wet the cloth and gently wipe your lips with it daily. Ensure that the cloth isn’t rough on your skin and if you wish you can use toothpaste also. Simply rub the toothpaste with the cloth or the napkin.
Exfoliation not only works to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother lips, it also helps to stimulate blood flow and circulation. This in turn leads to fuller and plumper lips. A simple scrub can be made at home using household ingredients. Mix sugar and water until it creates a paste. Rub the mixture on the lips and rinse to get lips that are naturally smoother and bigger. You can also go for homemade scrubs. Just take some sugar, add few drops of lemon or honey and gently scrub your lips with it. Sugar scrub is the best for your lips. Don’t forget to do it regularly.
Choose a good lip balm to moisturize your lips. Don’t let them dry at all. See that it has enough SPF protection so that it can protect you from the harmful sun rays and their side effects, that is, pigmentation. Apply after brushing your teeth and before going to bed. Always carry a lip balm with you. Some lipsticks dry and chap the lips. So it is always advisable to use a good lip balm underneath your lipstick.
You can use coconut oil, olive oil, Vitamin E, coco butter before going to bed. This will supple your lips.
Get rid of pigmentation:
Pigmentation is quite common these days. There are many ways to get rid of it, the simplest method is to mix few drops of lemon juice with honey and apply it on the lips. Leave it for a few minutes and wash off. You can add some sugar to it and use it as a scrub too.
Always choose your products wisely. Get lip liner and lipstick of the same shade that lasts long and doesn’t transfer when you eat or drink.
First of all, use a good lip balm with enough SPF in it. Wait for few minutes to let the lips absorb it properly. Now use a lip liner. Take the foundation on your finger tip and apply to your lips. Then apply a layer of lipstick with a lip brush. A brush can help you apply the lipstick with uniformity. Sprinkle some talcum powder on your lips to make the layer settle. This will help the lipstick stay longer.
Now apply another layer of lipstick. Swipe more times if required but do not apply a thick layer. A thick layer will easily fade but thin multiple layers last long. Now take the tissue and remove the excess lipstick from your lips by gently dabbing. Now if required, use a good lip gloss whose shade should be almost close to that of your lipstick.
Lip liner helps define the lip area. When aiming for a fuller looking lip, apply the liner a little above your natural lip line and then fill it in with your desired colour. This will give the effect that your lips are larger.
Believe it or not a simple smile can work wonders for your lips and it is probably the easiest method, requiring the least amount of thought. Watch a funny programme in order to get your laughs in or just smile a few times throughout the day when you think of it. This will work to strengthen your lip muscles so they don’t sag and help create fuller lips.
Kissing is not only exciting, it can create those luscious lips you want. Pucker up for a few seconds and repeat 10 times or just kiss someone you love multiple times a day. Either way, you are working those lip muscles in order to get a larger pout.
Before resorting to drastic steps such as fillers or plastic surgery, try a few of these suggestions mentioned above. You may not get lips like Angelina Jolie, but you will notice a difference that may just save you the pain and cost of more significant measures. It isn’t difficult to get luscious lips if you take care of them regularly.
