How to Achieve More Beautiful Lips

Got thin, dry, wrinkled lips? Then try these simple tips for more beautiful lips.

Plump and hydrated puckers are a sign of youth and beauty, so what can we do to hider their aging process?

Try to find an anti-aging cream or spa treatment for your mouth, and you probably won’t find one that isn’t some type of chap stick.

Here are a few tips to get your lips closer to perfection:

  • Exfoliate lips daily. Some people use their toothbrush and do this before bed. I prefer to mix some sugar and oil together in a container at home. An over-the-counter option is Sugar Lip Polish by Fresh. Make sure to close the lids tightly so it doesn’t attract bugs.
  • After exfoliation, follow up with a hydrating lip oil or super moisturizing oil based lip balm such as Fresh’s Sugar Advanced therapy lip treatment or Josie Maran’s lip balm. Lip oil is much more effective but harder to find as it is a relatively new invention. Hourglass has an anti-aging one called No. 28 which also contains vitamins. The tip is covered in 24K gold, which they claim fights bacteria and creates a smoother application.
  • Use tinted lip balms instead of lipstick. Glosses are okay as long as they aren’t water based. Look for ones that have oils and moisturize. Fresh and Korres have hydrating balms in a plethora of colors.
  • Try not to reduce licking/biting your lips or consuming too much of anything dehydrating or acidic. Alcohol, sodas, and anything overly salty or sugary are a no no. Be sure to get your 8 glasses of water per day.
  • To plump the lips without drying them out, try Peter Thomas Roth’s Un-Wrinkle Volumizing Lip treatment. It applies like a gloss and has a hint of color. For a natural volumizer, try dabbing on a little bit of spicy ingredients, ginger, or cinnamon.
  • To battle lip wrinkles, look for serums like Bioxidea’s Anti-Wrinkles Eye and lip serum. Serums normally absorb better than creams, especially if you exfoliate before hand. Mary Kay’s Age-fighting Lip Primer is great with or without lipstick in hiding lip wrinkles and feathering.

Professional Options

  • Restalyne or collagen injections. If your thin lips are bugging you that badly, go for it if you can afford it. There are many types of fillers on the market, but Restalyne still seems to be a favorite (among doctors) for the lip area because it uses smaller particles and is thinner and easier to work with in the mouth area. Just make sure to have an experienced and licensed doctor preform the injections, and don’t be a guinea pig for a new type of filler.
  • When at the spa, see if they can extend your facial treatment to your lips, or at least to the outer edges, as well. If you are getting a gentle peel or microdermabrasion treatment, it should be okay to use on the lips as well as long as you don’t ingest it.

Remember, having beautiful lips doesn't mean you need to have a huge trout pout. Keep them hydrated and smooth for an attractive overall appearance.
