Plump, pouty lips have always been attractive. Luscious lips make a woman look sexier,  and this is the reason why many desire the gorgeous pouts of celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johannson.

One of the effects of aging, however, is thinning lips.  Over the years, the lips lose its natural plumpness, making it appear significantly thinner.  Fortunately for those whose lips are thinning with age, you can still have plump, pouty lips with the help of cosmetic products and lip fillers.  Try these ways to getting plump, pouty lips for a more youthful appearance.


1. Exfoliate.  If you want to make your lips appear fuller, make it a point to exfoliate your upper and lower lip regularly to remove any flakiness or dullness.  Gentle exfoliation scrubs such as sugar with olive can scrub away dead skin cells and boosts circulation, adding color and creating the illusion of plumper lips.

2. Use lip plumpers. Lip plumpers are cosmetic products that contain ingredients that produce temporary vasodilation (widening of blood vessels).  When lip plumpers are applied to the lips, the blood vessels widen and circulation is increased, leading to enhanced shape and volume. If you want to learn which lip plumpers are safe and effective to use, you can ask your skin specialist Singapore for recommendations.

3. Use makeup to define your lips. A lot of women seem to have naturally pouty lips but did you know that you can achieve the same effect with makeup?  Using a lip liner, you can define your lips to make it appear bigger and fuller. Use  a lip pencil in a color very close to your natural lip color to line the outer edges of your lips. Next, fill your lip area completely before applying lipstick in a similar shade. To enhance the effect, use a glossy  lipcolor or one with a light sheen to it because it will help make your lips look full.

4. Consider lip fillers. Filler injections are cosmetic procedures that are highly popular and safe among those who want to achieve a desirable pout. Those who have thinning lips due to aging or are simply not blessed with full lips can visit certified skin doctor Singapore to inquire about fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm.

Lip fillers are dermal fillers that are injected into the lips to create bigger and plump lips.  Most fillers use hyaluronic acid, a substance that’s also naturally produced by the human body, to restore the lips’ lost volume.  And because it naturally occurs in the body, you’ll less likely to experience side effects and allergic reactions. Lip fillers are considered lunchtime procedures and require minimal to zero downtime.  Minimal pain is also expected as your skin specialist will apply numbing cream to your lips before injecting the filler.

Restylane, Perlane, and Juvederm are non-surgical dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient. Perlane differs from other dermal fillers because its particles are larger. Juvederm, on the other hand, is smoother in consistency and is injected into the dermis to produce lip enhancing effects that could last up to 12 months. Another type of dermal filler, Restylane, is similar to Juvederm except that is has a firmer and somewhat granulated consistency. Restylane is used in aesthetic clinics Singapore for clients who need more shape and structure in their lips in addition to volume restoration.

If you are looking to have fuller and more defined lips, you may be a likely candidate for lip fillers.
