The past few months have been all about the holidays and family. Now that that’s over, we can concentrate on the more important things, like romance! February brings to mind candy hearts, flowers, and lots of kisses from your special someone – but what if this emphasis on kissing has made you feel like your lips may be lacking? Read on for some lip tips for luscious lips!
At-Home Lip Tips
There are some things you can do at home to make lips look healthy and beautiful:
- Wear sunscreen. When you are putting on sunscreen before heading outside, you might not think to put it on your lips – but the sun can cause damage to your lips just like the rest of your skin. Use a lip product with an SPF of 15 or higher, and make sure to reapply it every 2 hours (especially after eating and drinking).
- Drink plenty of water. Water makes you feel good and look good, and it can make your lips look more full. And don’t lick your lips, which dries out lips and will undo the benefits of drinking lots of water!
- Use the right products on lips. Avoid lip products with camphor or other ingredients that may dry them out. Instead, opt for products containing aloe vera, beeswax, jojoba, coconut oil, or vitamin E.
- Use the right products around lips. Try a skincare product with retinol in it to reduce the fine lines around the mouth.
Unfortunately, though, sometimes at-home tips can only do so much. If you feel like your lips are thin, uneven, or just don’t look like they used to in their younger days, lip augmentation may be for you. The process of lip augmentation involves the injection of a dermal filler, such as JUVÉDERM®, into strategic locations in and around the lips to make them look youthful, pouty, healthy, and moisturized.
There is little doubt that your loved one loves your lips and loves having extra excuses to kiss them because of Valentine’s Day. However, if you aren’t happy with your lips, Revitalize! CNY in Fayetteville, New York, can help with a dermal filler. Call (315) 251-1234 today!
