Why Lip Tint Tattoos?

They make your lips appear fuller and more pigmented.

How it works

First up, numbing cream is applied onto the area. Then, the aesthetician will draw on your lips with removable liner until you're 110 percent happy. (Practice smiling and look at your lips from all angles.) The aesthetician will suggest ink colours, and once you're totally satisfied, the process begins. They use a fine, non- traditional tattoo gun and work it across your lips in small sections. Dr Kiran Lohia of Lumiere Dermatology warns against the procedure. "It can appear fake and it's very hard to remove as well. I always suggest people get lip lightening instead."

What to Expect

It's actually not too painful—it just feels like someone's poking your lips with a toothpick. After, your lips will look (and feel) huge, but they'll soon settle. Have it done at least one or two months before big events, as there can be swelling, flaking, and redness. Also, allow time for the pigment to soften, as initially it can look very bold. You'll need a refresher within a few months to help it last (can be up to 10 years), but it's otherwise low-maintenance.

Price

Lip Tint Tattoo from Rs.3,300 to Rs.19,900, and Lip Lighetning from Rs.3,000 to Rs.8,000 for two to four sessions, both at Lumiere Dermatology. (lumieredermatology.com)

The potential health benefits of drinking green tea are almost countless. "The antioxidant EGCG has been studied to treat various diseases and may help with brain function, fat loss, and lowering the risk of cancer," says Snyder. "Polyphenols are another antioxidant plentiful in green tea and can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting our cells from aging and other diseases." Keep your sipping to one or two cups a day as green tea is high in caffeine, which is best consumed in moderation, says Snyder. As for which to buy: "It's great to use organic loose leaf tea or tea bags that contain loose leaves, which are higher quality and are less processed," she says, as opposed to tea 'dust.'
