iDiva, India’s number one lifestyle site for women, recently published an article uncovering the efficacy of lip plumping glosses, along with other cosmetic alternatives for women desiring fuller lips. Around the globe, women are exploring a variety of techniques, from diy cupping methods to topical serums. As one of the top plastic surgeons in the industry and all-around beauty expert with her best-selling Platinum Lip Plumper, Dr. Devgan was asked to share her expertise on the subject.
Generally, lip-plumping glosses contain ingredients that cause mild irritation. This results in both subtle swelling and increased blood flow to the area, translating to fuller, pinker lips. Dr. Devgan mentions that many common ingredients that cause irritation are peppermint, cinnamon, or capsicum, none of which harm the body. However, some brands resort to riskier alternatives when concocting their lip-plumping glosses, like bee venom, which causes inflammation, and should be avoided.
Dr. Devgan’s Platinum Lip Plumper contains hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B3 (Niacin) to achieve not only a pinker and plumper look, but a more hydrated lip. Products containing hyaluronic acid are recommended, as there is the least potential for irritation. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-made lubricant within the body, and also a primary ingredient in many dermal fillers. Read the full article here.
