Having bigger lips has become an increasing trend. The duck face phenomenon and the Kylie Jenner Challenge set the trend in motion. Women have been trying to make their lips look fuller ever since. The Kylie Jenner Challenge can be dangerous. Instead, you can try the following natural plumping ways for that ultimate look.

Here Are Some Ways For You To Achieve Bigger Lips

Peppermint oil has a variety of uses. One of the benefits of the oil is that it acts as a lip plumper by increasing the fullness and color of your lips. Peppermint oil will irritate a little but in such a way that makes them plump up. This slight irritation creates fullness without causing them to swell.

Vapor Rub or Toothpaste

Place a small amount of vapor rub or toothpaste (but not both) on your lips. Both act as lip plumpers and are alternatives to peppermint oil. Keep it on for up to (but no more than) 10 seconds.


You can exfoliate your lips using a scrub made from sugar and coconut oil by rubbing gently. The exfoliation brings more blood which will give the appearance of plumpness. They will feel softer and have a rosy color to them. Don’t do it too often. If you do, you can crack your lips and damage them. Once a week is enough to increase your overall mouth health.

Natural Moisturizers

One of the keys to making your lips fuller is hydration. Since your mouth doesn’t have sweat glands, it doesn’t have a way of staying hydrated. Saliva dries out lips even more so it’s important to keep as hydrated as possible. A dab of honey or olive oil can keep your lips moisturized and soft.

Lip Exercises

You might have to wait up to a month before you can see the difference. If you find that you have the patience for a few quick exercises, you may also find yourself with better looking lips.

You should try to do these exercises 1 to 2 times per day. It only takes a few minutes each time. Although it is a bit controversial as to whether these exercises actually help, it is worth giving a shot. Even if it doesn’t work, your muscles around your mouth will be stronger.

· Duck Face Against Your Hand

This may be the only time a duck face is acceptable. Extend your lips as if you were kissing someone. Press them against the palm of your hand and create a little resistance. Hold for several seconds then release. Repeat 5-10 times.

· Blow A Kiss Then Smile About It

Smile as if it was your birthday, you just one the lottery, and Ryan Reynolds just arrived to take you on a date. Keep that smile for 15 seconds. Then prepare to kiss Ryan Reynolds. Pucker your lips as far as they’ll go. He’s right there, now’s your chance! Hold it for 30 seconds. Relax. Imagine Ryan has kissed you and your back to grinning from ear to ear. Repeat this whole process 10 times.

· Inverted Smile

Fold your lips inward and smile, they should be touching your teeth. Hold for 10 seconds then relax. Do this 10 times.

· Pretend to Rinse

Imagine you are swishing mouthwash in your mouth. Puff your cheeks and move the air from one side of your mouth to the other. Or you could take the time to go swish actual mouth wash. Bonus points for fresh breathe.
