Some home remedies that help plump your lips include exfoliation and using peppermint oil, capsicum and beeswax, notes AOL. In addition to making your lips plumper and fuller, these remedies also help to treat cracked lips and make them smoother and healthier. These methods are also safer than lip injection procedures.
Peppermint oil gives your lips more fullness and also has a soothing effect on your nerves. The substance irritates lips enough to cause them to swell without causing serious harm. Capsicum, which is essentially the component of red peppers that gives them their spice, also comes in the form of an oil. Using capsicum oil improves blood flow in your lips and makes them look fuller and plumper. Applying beeswax to your lips also allows your lips to become fuller, explains AOL.
Exfoliating your lips with a mixture of brown sugar and coconut oil increases circulation and gives them a rosy glow. Other home remedies to make your lips plumper involve using clove oil and cinnamon oil, reports LA Healthy Living. Apply clove oil on your lips, and leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing it off with water. Cinnamon oil irritates the lip membrane and reduces the appearance of fine lines around the mouth.
