Most women love the idea of having plump full lips and there are definitely a variety of cosmetic injections that we offer here at Pinewood naturopathic treatment in Toronto that can assist you with the plumping up of your pout. We offer hyaluronic acid injections which provide a safe temporary solution towards improving this aesthetic dilemma.

However before you consider getting lip injections to address the thinning of the lip tissue that sometimes comes with aging, hormonal changes in the body or cosmetic dental work, there are some things you can do to plump up your lips naturally.

Exfoliate Your Lips Daily

Exfoliating your lips daily will make them smooth, hydrated and bring the blood to the surface of the tissue and plump them up. One of the easiest plumping treatments to concoct yourself at home is a simple scrub made with olive oil and sugar. Simply scrub your lips with this mixture every morning before you put on your lipstick.

Some people use a toothbrush, dedicated to lip brushing, for this purpose. Even if you scrub without the sugar and olive oil mix, you will still get results. For a less messy scrub you can also use coconut oil, instead of the coconut oil.

Fake Out Lip Size With Lip Liner

Find a neutral shade of lip liner that is a similar shade to your lip colour and outline your entire lip line outside the line to give the illusion of larger lips. Then follow the line with your regular lipstick colour.

If you want to exaggerate your pout even further, line the middle bottom part of your lip with a darker shade of liner and highlight your cupid’s bow at the top with a bit of white pencil or white gloss.

Smoothing lip gloss in light pinks, peaches and nude shades is recommended as that creates the illusion of larger lips.Make a Natural Lip Plumper

Cinnamon and/or is a common ingredient in many lip plumpers and you can make your own by adding just one drop of cinnamon oil to a small pot of gloss and smearing it over your lips. It works by increasing the circulation of blood flow to your lips.Whistle a Happy Tune

You can tone your lips and make the stronger by whisting for three to four minutes a day. This builds up the surrounding muscles in your pout.
