I think I know how Angelina Jolie got those huge lips!
One word: lemons.
Call me crazy, but I’ve come to the conclusion that lemons can have a dramatic effect when it comes to plumping up one’s lips.
How do I know? Because it happened to me. Twice!
I Love Lemons
I tend to have some unusual cravings (nope, not pregnant) — and eating raw lemons is one of them.
I’ll suck on one or two whole lemons in one sitting. (Not without puckering, mind you. But I like the challenge… and the taste.)
A couple weeks ago, I was craving a third whole lemon… in a row. The result? Mega lips!
I’m not kidding. My lips swelled up like… well… like Angelina Jolie’s lips.
Truth be told, that must’ve been too much citrus for one set of lips, cuz they were also stinging …for hours. And they remained swelled for at least a day. (But I kinda liked the look while it lasted.)
Fast-forward to today, and I was craving lemons again. I had two down, and one more to go… but I had to stop. I got the Angelina Jolie lips again.
Nature’s Lip Enhancer
So… why spend money on all those expensive lip-plumpers available these days?
My advice: Try a lemon or two.
Not only are lemons a natural highlighter for your hair, and a natural astringent for your skin… they also appear to be a natural lip plumper.
P.S. Anyone out there willing to try out my lemon theory? If you do, let me know if the lemons have the same effect on your lips!

I like to help people find clever ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Beauty Tips and Beauty Hacks that most people wouldn't think of. With beauty products (like hair care, skincare, and makeup) and personal care items (like teeth issues, body odor, undergarments, and <em>other</em> topics that very few people enjoy talking about)… I share my own honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and find helpful. Especially for topics that are usually very "private" and most people don't like to talk about publicly! When I'm not trying new beauty products and organizing all my "stuff", you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
