The average person will spend 20,160 minutes or two full weeks of their lifetime kissing! Most people receive that very special “first kiss” from an early teen-aged crush. Kissing releases the same “feel-good” endorphins activated by intense exercise without the sweat and achy muscles.
A peck on the cheek uses just two muscles in your face, but a really good clench uses all of your facial muscles. In fact, the average one-minute kiss burns 26 calories, but a passionate kiss can melt off two or three times as many calories – and who stops at one? Kisses are like potato chips; you can never get enough. With so many benefits, it’s a wonder that a kissing diet hasn’t muscled Atkins and South Beach off the weight-loss best-seller list.
Of all the days of the year, Valentine’s Day is the kissingest. In America, more people trade kisses on Valentine’s Day than under the mistletoe on New Year’s Eve, No. 2 on the list of favorite days to steal a kiss. Nothing is more romantic than a Valentine’s Day kiss; but before you can capture a kiss, you have to create desire.
The perfect kiss starts with perfect lips. Full, luscious lips cry out to be kissed, but we’re not all blessed with plump, soft, kissable lips. If you were born with thin, scrawny lips; there’s no need to despair. Using an injectable skin filler, a skilled Cleveland cosmetic surgeon can to create the lush, generous lips you’ve always desired. Volumizing injections require no down time and are an affordable way to give your confidence a boost.
To make sure your lips gorgeously kissable on Valentine’s Day, schedule your lip enhancement treatment with Dr. Poblete now.
This season’s two hottest lip colors may be at opposite ends of the glamour spectrum, but they both cry out for full pouty lips to show them off to best effect. Rich sexy reds and demure barely-there nudes are this winter’s go-to lip colors for every occasion. Bold and dramatic, both lip colors demand lusciously full lips. If you weren’t born with Scarlett Johansson’s sexy kisser or Angelina Jolie’s famous pout, fillers treatments can help give you what Mother Nature missed. Filler treatments carefully administered by a board-certified Cleveland cosmetic surgeon can add volume to your lips and put them center stage.
Here’s how to dress your lips so you’re ready for whatever the day brings:
Barely-there nude lipstick is replacing pink gloss as the default lip color this season. To put the spotlight on your lips, choose a creamy lipstick with a slight gloss in a nude shade that is just a touch darker than your natural lip color. Test the color by comparing your lip color to your gums. Aim for a lip stain that looks neither too light nor too dark against your gums. Nude lipstick can carry you through the day from yoga to the office to a night of dancing at Cleveland’s hottest club. Tone down or glam up your look with layers of eye liner, shadow and mascara.
Sexy red lipstick creates drama and adds polish to your appearance. The trick is to choose a red that works with your skin tone. Choose brick reds for dark skin tones; true red for bronze complexions; orange reds for olive skin; and blue reds for fair skin. During the day, mute the drama with mascara and blush. In the evening, glam it up with black eyeliner and shimmery gold shadow.
