You don’t have to sign up for a gym membership to train the ring of muscles around your mouth to create the appearance of plumper lips. There are specific yoga exercises you can do in your car, at your desk or while sitting on the couch. Skip the collagen injections and lip-plumping products and opt for natural, facial yoga.

Step 1

Drink a glass of water and moisturize your lips with lip balm before beginning facial exercises. Keeping your skin hydrated improves the overall appearance of your skin. Moisturizing the lips prevents cracking in the delicate skin on your lips.

Step 2

Suck in a mouthful of air so your cheeks are half full and swollen. Move the air inside your mouth from one cheek to another. This action can reduce the tiny lines, called marionette lines, around your mouth. Do this five times.

Step 3

Blow kisses to yourself in a mirror for 30 to 60 seconds. The puckering and pursing action of the lips activates the ring muscles around your lips and makes them appear slightly swollen.

Step 4

Open your mouth as widely as you can and hold it for 10 seconds. Relax your lips and repeat three to five times.

Step 5

Suck in the sides of your mouth to make a fish face. Work your lips up and down. Do this 10 to 20 times.

Step 6

Close your lips tightly, press them inward. Make a popping noise with your mouth, then relax the lips. Repeat as many times as you like.
