Does brushing your lips with a toothbrush make them bigger? Some anecdotal evidence suggests that brushing your lips with a toothbrush can help stimulate blood flow and increase circulation.

That, in turn, could lead to plumper lips. However, there is no scientific evidence to support this claim.

So, while it may not be a foolproof method, it's worth a shot! Who knows, you may end up with the perfect pout.

¿Would you like to give it a try? I bring you a super easy tip on having our lips fuller and more prominent. I hope you like it.

You will need:

  • Vaseline or a lip balm, whichever is of your preference.
  • A new toothbrush.
  • A lipstick in the color of your lip.

Start by applying Vaseline or lip balm. How to do it? You have to bring your lips forward slightly (as if you were kissing).

What we are going to do with this is to try to make our lips suffer as little as possible when applying the toothbrush.

Rubbing the lips with the toothbrush

We can wet the brush a little bit when using the toothbrush before using it. When it is dry, it can be a little rough and cause a lot of damage.

We should rub the lips making diagonal movements drawing the shape of our lips.

I always start with the top part because it is the one I have the smallest and the bottom part at the end.

You should do this movement for three to four minutes at least once a week.

If you want to exfoliate your lips, you can also do it with sugar or with different types of products sold in supermarkets.

Once I am done with the exfoliation with the toothbrush, as you can see, the difference is super big.

Tips for keeping your lips looking their best

A well-known Hollywood saying goes, "The lips are the windows to the soul." Perhaps that's why so many people put so much effort into keeping their lips looking their best.

After all, who wants to have dry, chapped lips? So here are a few tips to help you keep your lips looking their best:

  1. Use a lip balm or ChapStick regularly, particularly in dry or windy weather.
  2. Avoid licking your lips, as this can make them drier.
  3. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, as dried-out lips are often a sign of dehydration.
  4. Exfoliate your lips periodically to remove dead skin cells and help promote new cell growth.
  5. Apply a lip primer before applying lipstick or gloss, as this will help the color go on smoothly and evenly.

You can keep your lips looking soft, smooth, and healthy by following these simple tips.

The bottom line

So, does brushing your lips with a toothbrush make them bigger? The answer is yes and no.

Brushing your lips can help remove dead skin cells and increase blood flow to the area, which may give the appearance of fuller lips.

However, if you are looking for noticeable results, you will likely need to use other methods in addition to brushing your lips.
