When someone says, “I want plumper lips”, the first thing that comes to your mind is… botox! But, what if we tell you that you could achieve a full pout without going under the needle? Yes, you read that right! Botox is not the only solution for plumper lips. In fact, you’ll be surprised to know that two natural ingredients from your kitchen can come to your rescue and help you flaunt voluptuous lips. We’re talking about cinnamon and peppermint! This DIY lip plumper is not only the cheapest but also the safest alternative for anyone who wants thicker, fuller lips.
Cinnamon contains cassia oil which acts as a calming agent, and therefore, does not harm your skin even when used topically. However, it does irritate your mucous membrane when applied to the lips. Hence, the blood circulation to your lips increases, leaving you with a bee-stung pout. Peppermint, on the other hand, has cooling effects on the skin that is revitalizing and leaves your lips soft, smooth and kissable. Here’s what you need to do:
Step 01: Exfoliate your lips to slough off dead skin. You can either make your own lip scrub at home or simply use a damp toothbrush and brush your lips with it.
Step 02: Now, take a bottle of clear lip gloss and add one tablespoon of cinnamon essential oil and six drops of peppermint essential oil into it.
Step 03: Shake the bottle and stir with the help of the applicator wand to ensure that the ingredients are mixed well.
Step 04: Apply the DIY lip plumper onto your lips daily for effective results.
But instead of concocting a serum, you could simply use the Lakme Absolute Forever Silk Lip Liner and draw plumper lips. This little trick works wonders to give you a fuller pout in just a few seconds.
