Q: I was excited about getting subtle lip filler injections — but I’ll have to wait now. What can I do to boost my lips in the meantime?
A: Boosting your lip health and condition will enhance the fullness of your lips in the long term.
Skin therapist Pietro Simone (pietrosimone.com) does a brilliant plumping facial massage and says you can easily do this for the lip area yourself, even if you already have fillers (just be extra gentle).

Wash your hands, then ‘start in the middle of your top lip, with forefingers facing each other. Make gentle pinching and outward-rolling movements along the lip line, progressing in small steps towards the outer corners,’ he says.
‘Do the same for the bottom lip. It brings blood flow and nutrients to the lips to keep them youthful and plump.’
He advises a similar pinch-and-upward roll session along your nose-to-mouth lines to prevent them deepening.
‘Once a week, use a gentle lip scrub (try L’Occitane Delicious Lip Scrubs, £15, uk.loccitane.com) and every day, treat the lip area to a product rich with peptides, humectants and antioxidants and a rich, regenerating balm.
Great dedicated lip products that will do this job are Teoxane 3D Lip Nourishing & Plumping Care, £35 (dermacaredirect.co.uk), which is said to have a visible effect within 30 minutes, and Merumaya Lip Line Restoration Treatment, £20 (merumaya.com).
