#HauteHack: A Natural Lip Plumper That’s Super Effective
I don’t remember a single time when luscious lips weren’t in vogue. Kylie Jenner’s pucker might have created mass hysteria in 2015 thanks to the #KylieJennerLipChallenge, but lip plumping products have been around much longer. However, not every lip product has a plumping effect and not everyone is okay with getting their lips injected with fillers.
And I bet you didn’t know that the pouty lips of your dreams were right within your reach. AND that you could get them naturally. Peppermint essential oil is the only thing you’ll need to get a Priyanka Chopra-esque pout. All you have to do is add a few drops of peppermint oil into your favourite lip gloss or lip balm. Mix it up thoroughly, apply it and see it work its magic.
This all natural oil works on the premise of improving blood circulation. When applied to your lips, it brings more blood to the surface making your lips swell, making them plumper than they are. Bonus point: Peppermint oil also smells delicious, so it will freshen up your breath as well.
A word of caution, though: Don’t go overboard with the oil. Add only a few drops or your lips might sting.
