Your Guide to Luscious Lips

Woman with Red Lips Makeup and Jewelry EarringsNow that the chaos of the holidays is over, we can concentrate on the good stuff – romance! February is known for being the most romantic month, and hopefully that means even more kisses from your loved one. But perhaps all of this extra emphasis on kissing is making you feel like your lips aren’t as luscious as they should be. The answer is simple — your lips just need some extra TLC!

Some Tips for Lips

There are a few simple things you can do to keep your lips looking good:

  • Hydrate! Drinking lots of water is important for your health, comfort, and beauty. Make sure you get enough water every day to keep lips looking plump and moisturized.
  • Don’t forget the sunscreen. Your lips are vulnerable to damage from the sun just like the rest of your body. Cover them with sunscreen when you go outside – there are even lip balms available that have sunscreen protection in them.
  • Pay attention to what you wear on your lips. Avoid any lip products with ingredients that dry out lips, such as camphor. Products containing coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, or vitamin E are better for keeping lips looking and feeling their best.

Of course, when our lips have been through years of living, there is only so much that home care can do. If you feel that your lips are too thin or uneven, or if you are bothered by lines around the lips, you might consider a dermal filler. Fillers such as Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® can help to restore volume to lips so they look plump and pouty, and they can also reduce lines around the mouth that can make you look older than you are. Fillers have many benefits: you’ll see noticeable and impressive results for months, they hardly take any time at all to have them injected, and they are safe and FDA approved.

There is very little doubt that your loved one loves your lips – but if you feel they are lacking in some way, the staff at American Dermatology Associates can help, by recommending the right dermal filler for you. Call the office in Sarasota, Florida, at 941-379-6647 for an appointment today!
