Exercises for Bigger Lips

Like any part of the body, there is no one exercise to make lips bigger and plump.

There are 18 muscles involved in the different movements of the lips, 9 on each side, 4 + 4 (8 controlling movements of the upper lips and 5 + 5 (10 controlling movements of the lower lips.

Hence, different exercises help your lip muscles become more plump. 7 easy-to-perform exercises to make lips bigger and Fuller are discussed here.

According to the modern beauty standards of today, fuller and plumper lips are viewed as attractive.

While some may be naturally blessed with full lips many individuals especially girls may be insecure about their lips.

Going under the knife may seem scary and not an easy option for many which is why there are many tips and tricks online that can help you attain a more plump look naturally.

Fuller lips can make the dimensions of your face and your facial features look more captivating.

To achieve this many options are present such as using makeup with shadows to make them appear bigger, or using plumping lip glasses infused with peppermint essential oil which can temporarily cause the lips to swell and give a fuller look.

Multiple facial and lip exercises too can help in achieving this but like all other non-invasive options these results are temporary and eventually the lips will go back to their normal size.

The face and lips are composed of many muscles and just like any other muscle using it or exercising it will increase its size but only temporarily, over time if you stop exercising the muscles will go back to the way it was.


A few exercises you can try incorporating into your day-to-day life for a fuller lip look are listed below:
