Actress Angelina Jolie probably has the most recognizable big lips in Hollywood. Maybe, too full.
If you're looking to plump up your lips, and want to forget the stinging needles of collagen in your dermatologist's office, you can try this:
Plump up your lips the natural way.
And all you need is one ingredient you can find in your grocery store aisle or natural food store.
You have a choice:
1. Peppermint oil
2. Cinnamon leaf oil
Each small bottle of oil will cost you about $5-$6.
In fact, if you look at some of the over-the-counter lip plumpers available, you will see the ingredients often list peppermint oil or cinnamon leaf oil. Both natural products set off a small allergic reaction that causes temporary swelling.
Even derms like David Bank of Mount Kisco, NY, advise women to "dab your pout with peppermint oil" for a natural way to plump lips.
But we would like to exercise some caution here. First, make sure you are not allergic to peppermint or cinnamon to begin with. And secondly, a tiny amount goes a long-ggggg way.
And be prepared for the burn!! We advice you to add the peppermint oil or cinnamon leaf oil to your favorite lip gloss or lip balm.
Do not add the oil directly to your naked lips, or you will feel the pain.
And it's as simple as that---plumper, fuller, sexier lips, at least temporarily.
