DIY: Lip Plumper

Let's face it. We all want the perfect pout. BUT before you head to your nearest plastic surgeon, peruse the ingredients in your kitchen first!



Ingredients:  
1/4 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
1/4 teaspoon of ground Ginger
2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil
1-2 drops of Peppermint Oil

Honesty time: Simply put, the overall purpose of this treatment is to irritate your lips just enough so they swell. The Cayenne Pepper is a natural source that, when combined with the ground Ginger, helps to irritate and slightly burn your lips so they plump up. It's really more of a tingle though, promise! The Coconut and Peppermint work together to both soothe and hydrate your pouter.



  • How To Make Your Lip Plumper:
  • Fill a small pot halfway with water and leave it on medium heat until it starts to simmer but not boil.
  • Once your water is simmering, take a big container and place it in your water, but make sure no water gets into the container you essentially just want the heat of the water
  • Mix together your Cayenne, Ginger, and Coconut oil and stir until evenly combined
  • Add in your Peppermint Oil and stir again until even
  • Take your pot off the heat, pour your mixture into a glass jar with a tight lid (or lipgloss container), and place into your fridge to cool for 20 minutes
  • Once your plumper is cool to the touch, dip a (clean) finger in and apply evenly to your lips
  • Snag a Naturally based lip gloss like Youniques Lucrative Lip Gloss in your favorite color to show off your new pout. 
Last but not least -- SMILE! :)
