It’s time to retire the mistletoe and prepare for the real deal–Valentine’s Day! You can take several steps to make your lips more kissable ahead of time to get ready for V-Day. Whether you’re going on a first date, are in a new relationship, or have been committed for years, you can get plump and kissable lips when you follow these five steps.
How to Get Kissable Lips: A Step-By-Step Guide
You can take a series of steps to achieve the perfectly plump lips of your dreams.
Step 1: Exfoliate Your Lips
We have found that Healthline.com has some great lip exfoliating recipes you can make and try at home. Exfoliating your lips will remove any dead skin on the surface of your lips which will make them smooth. Lips are not very efficient at retaining moisture, so they dry out easier than other areas. We advise exfoliating no more than twice a week; if you exfoliate too much, you could start to remove healthy skin.
Step 2: Keep Your Lips Hydrated
Dry, cracked lips are not kissable lips, so be sure to keep your lips hydrated. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using products that contain (to name a few) shea butter, mineral oil, and sun-protecting ingredients like zinc oxide to maximize hydration. Keeping the skin on your lips moisturized not only makes your lips look shiny, but it also ensures the health of your lip skin.
Step 3: Use a Temporary Lip-Plumping Gloss
Many women use lip-plumping agents like glosses, lipsticks, and chapsticks—but these last only a few hours, if that. They are a reasonable temporary solution, but there are side effects, like dryness and irritation, depending on the brand you use. Overusing a plumping product is not recommended. If you truly want the most kissable lips to last you a long time, visit our Injxcellence Medical Spa for lip fillers.
Step 4: Getting Lip Filler
If you want to add volume to your lips and reduce natural lines and wrinkles, then getting lip filler is for you. This is a non-surgical procedure we provide at Injxcellence, and the results are beautiful. The filler we use can stimulate natural collagen production, and the water-based gel we use in our filler is safe for your body. Patients trust us because, when it comes to lip fillers, we don’t compromise on quality.
- The Breslow Center uses only high-quality products containing hyaluronic acid, which blends naturally with the tissue under the skin for lip filler procedures. We use JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC for our lip fillers, providing the most natural outcome.
- Our licensed medical aestheticians are experts in using lip fillers to achieve natural-looking fuller lips.
- Lip fillers are a form of dermal filler, which are injected under the skin to fill out wrinkles and creases.
- Your lip filler will last between six and 12 months before you need to make another appointment
When you get your lip filler treatment, you’ll want to wait a couple of days before kissing. You can experience slight bruising and soreness for 24 to 48 hours after your procedure.
Step 5: Consider Laser Skin Resurfacing For Lips
Don’t forget to pay attention to the area around the lips too! Combating a few wrinkles or treating some acne around your mouth will do wonders. This can all be done with skin resurfacing. Here, we use the best skin resurfacing technology on the market, which not only diminishes the visibility of scars and wrinkles but also promotes the body’s collagen production for a period of up to six months, enhancing the skin’s inherent firmness and elasticity. This will definitely up your game!
Bonus: Showcase Those Lips with Permanent Lip Makeup
Micropigmentation or permanent lip liner and tinting will enhance your lips and their natural contour. This procedure will bring just the right amount of attention to your mouth in a subtle and natural-looking way. Lip makeup is meant to showcase your natural lips and does not provide volume or a change in their shape.
