Why You Shouldn’t Be Using Lip Plumping Gloss
Many women everywhere strive to attain certain looks that help them look and feel good about themselves. Depending on the desired look, there are several ways to achieve this. Cosmetic surgery is often wished for but can be costly or worrisome. However, none are less permanent and more instantly gratifying than by the use of cosmetics. Cosmetics can do a lot for us and can change our looks in a subtle and charming way or can even cause a more dramatic look change. However, there are some products that aren’t the best choice – among these is lip plumping gloss. When it comes to having plumper lips, there are other options you can consider, such as lip fillers.
What’s Wrong with Lip Plumping Gloss?
Lip plumping gloss is all over makeup websites, department stores, and in advertisements – it’s true that this is taking the world by storm and gaining in popularity. A simple lipgloss that promises to make your lips appear fuller, plumper, and more kissable – but is it really all that?
In fact, it isn’t that great of an idea to use these regularly at all. If you take a look at some of the ingredients in these lip glosses or even ask a professional about them, you will find out that they are harboring an interesting little secret. While sure, the fact that they are super shiny is usually a way to help your lips appear more full and plump; there is something else in them that causes that fuller lip appearance. As it turns out, these lip glosses are plumping your lips – but not in a good way. In fact, their little secret is that they are actually irritating your lips by using ingredients that cause a plumping reaction. These ingredients are also what cause the lips to sting after applying the gloss.
So your lips are really swelling, not plumping, which isn’t a good thing if you think about it.
What is Better Than Lip Plumping Gloss?
If you still want to get your pouty, full-lipped look and are ready to give up those harsh lip-plumping glosses, lucky for you, there are things that you can do that will help you achieve this look without actually irritating your lips into swelling up.
One of these things is getting professionally applied lip fillers. Lip fillers are made especially for plumping up the lips to get your perfect pout while being minimally invasive and surgery-free. They are made with collagen, which causes the lips to plump, giving you the full lips you are looking for – and it’s actually designed for just that. As a bonus, they require minimal downtime and allow you to go about your day, making them perfect for a lunchtime procedure.
