How to Give the Perfect Valentine’s Kiss

shutterstock_128268989As February 14th is getting closer, you will be preparing for chocolates, flowers, and kisses. With the lips being one of the most sensitive and alluring parts of the body, it only makes sense that they receive tender loving care so you can dish out luscious kisses this Valentine?s Day. Here are some helpful tips to ensure that your lips are plump and ready for action:


Dryness is something that your lips are constantly fighting against. Gently rubbing a scrub on the lips will remove dead skin cells and promote the growth of healthier cells. While facial scrubs can be used, a mixture of sugar and olive oil will also work as a less expensive alternative.


Making sure your lips are well hydrated is also important to delivering the perfect kiss this Valentine?s Day. Generic lip balms are usually effective, but to get ready for the perfect kiss use one that contains shea butter or vitamin E as a primary ingredient.

Plump Up the Volume

Luscious lips aren?t complete without a certain degree of plumpness. If you have thin lips or just wish to add more volume to your Valentine lip smacking, apply lip liner that is darker than your actual lipstick. The contrast of light and dark colors will make your lips look larger.


Protecting your lips against the environmental elements (sun exposure, wind, etc.) is important for improving their overall appearance. Wearing a lip balm that contains an SPF of 15 or higher will help prevent wrinkles and fine lines from developing.

While these tips will help prevent future aging in the lips, cosmetic treatment through fat transfer can immediately improve the volume of the lips and provide long-lasting results.
