How to Get Sexy, Plump Lips in 30 Days

Full lips are scientifically linked to how sexually attractive we appear to potential mates. One way to take years off your looks is to create the appearance of rounder, plumper lips. They communicate youth, vitality, and sexual maturity. And incredible lips are achievable without painful, expensive and unnerving injections of botulism. You too can have lips as luscious as Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian in less than one month. Achieving that starlet pout is one part skin care, one part choosing the right products, and one part optical illusion. Let's look at your way to round, pouty, gorgeous lips in four weeks or less.

Step #1: Exfoliate and Moisturize

The first strategy in achieving amazing lips is to moisturize and exfoliate your lips regularly. Just like the rest of the skin on your face, your lips require just as much attention. Apply a high quality lip balm at least three times a day. By moisturizing your lips, you will prevent the appearance cracks, lines, peeling and other signs of deterioration. Cracks and lines are where your lip liner, lipsticks, and glosses settle and collect which actually emphasizes them and inadvertently makes you appear older. Exfoliating your lips once a week will also help eliminate unsightly cracks and peeling on your lips.

Bioelements' Lip Buff is an excellent two-in-one lip moisturizer and exfoliant. Lips are moisturized using Shea butter as well as olive, soybean, and jojoba oils. Sugar cane crystals gently buff away cracks and peeling to improve the texture and smoothness of lips and promote their natural color.

Step #2: Use the Right Plumping Products

The next secret to achieving a smoldering pout within a month is to use the right lip-plumping products. The market has seen many come and go over the last five years, but there are some that will help achieve the look of full, sexy lips. DermaQuest Skin Therapy's C-Lipoic Lip Enhancer is one product with some definite plumping power. This vitamin C lip treatment contains Alpha Lipoic Acid and Palmitoyl Oligopeptide. Alpha Lipoic Acid is a potent anti-inflammatory and 400 times stronger than regular vitamin C, a known anti-oxidant. Palmitoyl Oligopeptide stimulates collagen production resulting in fuller, more gorgeous lips. Restoring a fresh, youthful look to your lips is also made easy with Freeze 24·7's Plump Lips. The main ingredient is GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid), a natural muscle relaxant which diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The Plump Lips formula increases circulation throughout the lips without the burning and tingling sensation other products are known to cause.

Step #3: Apply Your Lips Correctly

The final step to getting those to-die-for lips is mastering your makeup application. Hollywood's glamour girls use these secrets for every red carpet appearance they make. First, use a lip liner similar to your natural lip color. Anything darker will actually make your lips appear smaller once your other lip color wears away. Define the shape of your lips by tracing the outside and correcting any asymmetries. Then, apply some lip gloss. The moist look of lip gloss is the key to really making your lips look younger and sexier. Finally, apply some white shimmer to the center of both your upper and lower lip, being careful not smudge lips from side to side afterwards. The white shimmer is an optical illusion, drawing the eye to the center of your lips and making them appear rounder and fuller.
