Those who have tried lip gloss with a “plumping” effect, know the feeling it creates: a slight bite, a small burn that lasts a few seconds, and fuller lips.
This product is not new; in fact, it was created years ago but now with the mania of puffy lips that has erupted everywhere, nourished significantly by aesthetic interventions, even this kind of gloss has regained attention. But does it really have an effect?
Plastic surgeon Lara Devgan explains that such glosses contain irritants like red pepper, cinnamon or mint. The moment it settles to the edge, it promotes the flooding of blood to the surface, which also brings about a smooth, temporary accumulation that creates the idea of a swelling.
