Lately, the traditional tube of lipstick has given way to small shiny bottles of lip gloss and stain. Sometimes they come in one package with a juicy, shiny color and applicator wand. Other times, you have stain in one bottle and a separate tube of clear, colored, shiny or matte gloss.
Just looking at the colors and the ads, you know these products will make your thinning lips look plump and younger. But when you put the gloss on, you notice that the color sinks into every crevice and small line in your lips. They look older, thinner, not attractive, and certainly not kissable. How are you going to get a more precious pout?
Are You Getting Enough To Drink?
The first thing you should check is whether you’re getting enough water to drink. Even mild dehydration can leave your lips scaly and shriveled. Increase your daily water intake to help your lips, among other things.
The moisturizer you use on your face is not what you should be using on your lips. For your lips, you need something that will not only lock in moisture but also protect from an excess of it. You could go the traditional route with a stick of protectant or you could use a natural moisturizer like shea butter, coconut oil or aloe gel. It may take a little while to find what works best for you, but once you find it, stock up!
If you aren’t dehydrated and have a great moisturizer, but still struggle with thinning, lined lips, contact Kalos Plastic Surgery to find out how Dr. Stong can help you have a fuller, plumper smile.
