From Angelina Jolie to the youngest in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, they all have one thing in common. Luscious lips! If you have minimalist lips and have been dreaming of getting those full lips, there are two ways to go about getting them. One, you could get lip injections, which could mean you spend quite a bit. Two, you could apply lip plumpers that help make your lips look fuller. Interested? Here is everything you need to know about lip plumpers.
How are they made?
Lip plumpers are made pretty much like any other lipstick, with one difference. They additionally have ingredients like capsaicin or peppermint, which give you that tingly sensation and swell up your lips. They also have hydrating agents that give your lips a smooth look while making them look fuller.
Just what is there in lip plumpers?
Lip plumpers have active ingredients that cause a tingling sensation in the skin on your lips. This causes a very mild and temporary irritation in the skin and causes it to swell up. Capsaicin, which is found in peppers, peppermint and ginger are generally used to achieve this effect.
Are there any cons of using lip plumpers?
Absolutely none! They are formulated to be gentle on your lips. Although there is a tingling sensation, it wears off quickly. Using a lip plumper from a good brand will give you the lips you have been wanting! We suggest you keep away from DIY versions of lip plumpers as not knowing the exact concentration to use the active ingredients in can be a bit of a risk!
