I love the quote ‘ A smile is the most beautiful curve on a woman’s body’, but how do you perfect yours without overloading your lips with toxins.
One way to keep your lips looking gorgeously fresh and plump is to exfoliate them regularly.
Homemade lip scrub
A fan of homemade facial scrubs, here’s a fabulously easy recipe to keep your pout looking beautifully soft and smooth.
- 1 tbsp of runny honey
- 1 tbsp of brown sugar
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Simply mix ingredients together, apply to the lips with finger and gently rub in a circular motion, then rinse and pat dry with a soft towel.
Organic and natural lip gloss
To plump your lips, whilst adding a touch of shimmer to your pout, look out for an organic lip gloss that will add natural luminosity without the chemical nasties.
One product I can recommend is EnvyDerm Lip Volumizing and Conditioning Plumper.
Developed to condition, gloss and plump your lips, up to 37% within 45 minutes, Envyderm’s Paraben, Sulfate and Phthalate-free Volumnizing Lip gloss delivers a sheer, non-sticky, long-lasting colour which, with it’s cool, tingling sensation, made my lips look fuller and fresher after just one application.
Vegan friendly, dermatoligist safety tested and containing over 15 organic moisturizing oils including Argan, Jojoba oils and organic botanicals such as Gogi and Acai Berry, pomegranate and grape seed oils, EnvyDerm soothes, softens and conditions the lips giving them a more youthful appearance.
Peptides and tripeptides which give the gloss it’s lovely tingling sensation (these boost microcirculation in the lips enhancing their volume and smoothing their contour) couples well with the fresh minty ‘taste’ of the gloss – making it really pleasurable to apply, wear and reapply.
As well as looking plumper during initial use, with continued use over 80% of women felt Envyderm had left their lips feeling fuller and plumper after 28 days. With a further 73% stating that their lips appeared more youthful after the same time.
Available in 10 different colours, including Peachy Pink, Cinnamon Beige, Clear and Blackberry plum (which I reviewed) at £13 a tube, this is a great mid range product that I’d definitely recommend adding to your green beauty makeup bag.
