Ever since the boom of fuller looking lips, people are after anything that can make their lips look full and voluptuous.
Our lips are naturally a very sensitive part of skin on your body, it doesn’t contain melanin, like the rest of your skin so can leave it being prone to dryness. Even licking your lips can upset the delicate balance of your lips because your saliva contains enzymes damage your lips! Due to this, your lips also lose the layer of fat underneath it that provide it with elastin and collagen. Which means that they can easily lose their natural plumpness.
Some people have turned to various products and methods to get this back from everything from products to injectables to plastic surgery.
A more natural approach such as using Hyaluronic Acid or Collagen works well to give your lips a plump look without being invasive. Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid works as humectants, which means they draw moisturise from the air around it. This ability means that they can pump your lips full of moisture to help your lips look more full and help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ‘Collagen has the ability to act as a humectant (moisturiser), however, and therefore will moisturise the skin and temporarily improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,’ says consultant dermatologist, Dr Mahto.
As well as this brilliant ability, Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid are created by the body already and so the chance of having an allergic reaction is very small, even if you have sensitive skin.
These ingredients can be found in many forms from large lip masks, that are growing more popular because of Korean Beauty, to serums. To try a serum containing Collagen, use our Anti-Oxidising and Replenishing Collagen Serum, which not only helps with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but also works toward keeping your lips as nourished as possible.
