Exfoliating the lips help to remove dead skin cells. To exfoliate you can DIY a scrub, and for that, all you need is some sugar, honey and coconut/olive oil, mix it all well and use it as a scrub on your lips to exfoliate. Also, exfoliation helps to maintain good blood flow and makes the lips temporarily swollen.
2. Massage Your Lips With Aloe Vera
Massaging the lips with aloe vera gel on a regular basis makes them soft, treats fine lines and overall is a great antioxidant. Also, as massaging increases the blood circulation, it helps to give fuller effect on the lips.
3. Brush Your Lips

Doing so will exfoliate the lips, but make sure to dip the toothbrush in warm water before using it as it will give gentle exfoliation and will not harm the lips. You can even add coconut oil or cinnamon to get that fuller lip effect for a whole day.
4. Use Peppermint Oil
This oil is readily available at any nearby store, which makes it highly accessible. It acts as a natural lip plumper and also works to improve blood circulation in lips.
