Natural ways to plump your lips and be more kissable

Pucker Up

Nothing says “kiss me” more than a set of luscious lips. Full, moist lips with a perfectly defined Cupid’s bow (yes, that’s the real name for those little lines from your nose to the points of your top lip!) scream youth and beauty but after a cold winter, it’s hard to get them in good shape.

So, what can you do to keep your lips looking beautiful and soft for Valentine’s Day and beyond? Some people swear by fillers, but not everyone wants to spend hundreds of dollars at a plastic surgeon plumping their lips. Instead here are some natural ways to get that kiss me glow.

  1. Stay Hydrated – The skin on your lips is more sensitive to dehydration than other parts of your face, and if you are dehydrated, it will show. While there isn’t a predetermined amount of water each person should drink, the more water you do drink, the less chapped your lips will get. The water you choose is important, too! Try to pick something with a high pH, as this will be absorbed by your body quicker and easier.
  2. Protect With Sunscreen – Use sunscreen to protect your sensitive lips from sun damage that can age them prematurely. There are many lip glosses that contain SPF to protect your precious pout. Try to find a lip gloss that has an SPF of 30 or higher and reapply several times per day. Even if you work inside, wear a good SPF as the sun can damage your lips even through a window or driving in your car.
  3. Use Hyaluronic Acid – Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that adds moisture, volume, and shine to your lips. There are several lip gloss brands that contain HA, and regular use of these products can actually increase the volume in your lips. You might have a slight tingle from the product at first, and after a few days will have full, hydrat- ed lips. It’s best to have an a.m. and p.m. formulation so that you get plump- ing at night with sun protection during the day.
  4. Exfoliate – Just like your face, it’s important to exfoliate your lips on a weekly basis with a gentle natu- ral exfoliant, like a sugar scrub. This will remove dull, dead skin on the surface and encourage the production of new skin. Getting rid of the dry surface skin also allows products to penetrate easier.

Farhan Taghizadeh, MD.

We pride ourselves on offering the latest cosmetic technologies and procedures. I am constantly in contact with some of the biggest aesthetic companies in the country to find out what new devices are coming out so that we can help you look your best. I have extensive cosmetic surgery training, and I have performed over 3,500 facelifts. My goal is to meet you where you are - whether you are noticing sun damage or are tired of looking 15 years older than you feel-together we can find a way to bring that spark back to your life!

I completed my ENT training at the University of Rochester in 2004. To further deepen my understanding of the face, I did a facial plastic surgery fellowship in Switzerland (where I also developed a love of chocolate!). These experiences gave me an in-depth understanding of head and neck structures, an understanding that I use and refine every day to help you achieve the outcome you seek.

"Whether you have a serious medical condition or are interested in rejuvenating your look, I look forward to getting to know you and making you feel great!"
