Having plumped up lips is a look that many of us desire. Plump lips have been in fashion for a long time now. Years ago the easiest way to achieve this was with a lip liner and lipstick. Nowadays there are lots of cosmetic lip augmentation treatments like dermal filler injections. However, at Nakin we believe in looking as good as we can using natural methods, like our award-winning natural anti-ageing skincare range. So, we thought we would share our tips for achieving beautiful plump lips completely naturally. We have to be honest and say that these natural methods will probably not achieve the bee stung lip look that fillers can. However, lips will look natural and it is completely safe and kind to lips. We know it is a personal choice, but if you are not keen on using cosmetic lip procedures, then read on to help plump your lips naturally.
We are all born with different lips and some of us will naturally have thinner lips than others. As we age lips also start to lose their fullness, this is because there is less collagen and elastin in them, which makes lips lose volume and become thinner. It happens gradually as the years pass and as well as lips getting thinner, they also lose some of their shape. They are not as full and strong, plus the V shape in the upper lip flattens and the outer edge of the lips start to downturn. The best way to combat this naturally is with regular natural therapy like mouth facial exercises, along with using best lip balm. A healthy diet and lifestyle will also help to keep lips as full as possible and sun protection for lips is essential to prevent premature lip ageing.
Lips can be toned like any other part of the body. Exercising the lip and mouth area will strengthen the muscles around the mouth, plus stimulate and increase the blood flow to the lips which helps to make them more plump and full. Before starting lip and mouth exercises apply a good lip product to the lips, like our award-winning Lip Treatment Balm. This will keep lips super conditioned and hydrated during the movements, as otherwise lips may crack and become sore. Once our natural lip balm has been applied find somewhere comfy and sit down for 5 minutes in front of a mirror. These exercises have been taken from Howcast and the first one is simply to blow an exaggerated kiss and repeat this 20 times. Make sure that during all the lip exercises to keep the rest of the face soft and relaxed, with no tension or wrinkling in areas like the forehead. Check this in the mirror and place your hand on the tense areas to relax them if needed. Next say very pronounced long O and repeat this 20 times. The last exercise is to open the mouth as fully as you can, which also gives the whole face a boost. Repeat this for 20 times as well. Follow the exercise routine every 2 to 3 days.
Lips like the rest of skin and our body benefit from a healthy lifestyle with lots of nutrients, hydration and sun protection. Lips often get forgotten about when applying sun protection, but sun damage is a big cause of collagen loss in the lips. Damage from sun causes premature ageing and more lines on the lips, it affects the collagen in the lips and their fullness. So, for naturally plump lips make sure that lips are protected with a high-quality lip sunscreen. To help with past lip damage and lines using a good anti-ageing lip balm. Using a 100% natural lip balm like Nakin’s means that lips receive intense goodness to condition and nourish them.
