It’s the holiday season, and nothing says “festive” like beautiful red lips!
To achieve the most of the look, try AminoGenesis’ 3 steps to full, sexy lips:
Although it sounds silly, dry, cracked lips don’t reflect the light like smooth, polished lips, making them appear smaller by contrast. Use a little bit of your favorite exfoliator over your lips, and rinse completely. Or simply brush over your lips with a toothpaste-less toothbrush. Simply wipe off the dry skin that flakes off with a tissue, and you’re done!
2.) Place clear, shiny lip gloss at the center of your bottom lip only.
This is a time-tested makeup artist secret. Many photographers will tell you that shine makes the light reflect an object twofold as images are converted from 3D real-life to 2D in photographs. With that said, you can make the fullest part of your lip reflect even fuller by applying gloss right there. It looks amazing. Trust me!
3.) Get AminoGenesis Lips to Love!
AminoGenesis Lips to Love Instant Lip Plumper is one of the few lip plumpers that works without irritants. Instead, it induces plumping through healthy agents, like peptides and vitamin B3. It’s an incredible product every woman must have!
One secret? Niacin! Niacin is a part of the vitamin B complex group. Without getting too scientific and boring, niacin is responsible for a number of enzymatic oxidation-reduction reactions essential for processes such as tissue respiration, lipid metabolism, and glycogenolysis (Wikipedia).
When applied to the skin and the lips, niacin has proven effective in treating the skin via reduced transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and increased moisturization. In fact, a published study in the International Journal of Dermatology found that 2% niacinamide was more effective than petrolatum (Vaseline, or a purified mixture of hydrocarbons from petroleum/crude oil) in reducing water loss from skin and increasing its moisture levels.
But niacin is also a potent anti-aging ingredient. . According to at least one study, niacinamide reduces fine lines and wrinkles, reverses hyperpigmented spots, alleviates red blotchiness, and increases skin elasticity.
Another secret? Firming peptides!
What is great about palmitoyl oligopeptide is that it significantly stimulates collagen production in human fibroblasts, as shown in a 2007 study. When used twice daily for about six months, this resulted in firmer, tighter skin.
On the lips, palmitoyl oligopeptide is also useful because it has been found to regulate elastin expression. Elastin expression naturally increases with age, leading to criss-crossed, disorganized fibrils that can make skin less elastic and more brittle over time. By using products with palmitoyl oligopeptide on the lips, it may be able to help the lips stay more supple over time.
When used in a product like AminoGenesis Lips to Love Instant Lip Plumper, niacin helps the blood flow safely rush to the lips, as well as hydrate and protect. It’s a beautiful thing!
