How to Make Your Lips Bigger With Facial Yoga

Regular yoga shrinks areas of the body, but facial yoga has the opposite effect on your lips. By training the ring of muscles around your mouth with specific exercises, you can define and enlarge the lips. You don't have to sign up for a gym membership to work these muscles; do lip yoga 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 and moisturizing the lips is important for getting fuller lips with yoga.

Step 2

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

Step 3

Blow kisses to yourself in a mirror for 30 seconds to a one minute. The pursing action of the lips will make them appear slightly swollen.

Step 4

Suck in the sides of your mouth to make a fish face. Work your lips up and down. Hold your lips for five seconds at a time. Do this 10 to 20 times.

Step 5

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

Things You'll Need

  • Glass of water

  • Moisturizing lip balm

Tips

Pay attention to your lip activity. You should limit lip pursing or tightening the lips. These will make the lips appear thin.
