Nothing is sexier than soft and smooth lips! It doesn’t matter if you’re the biggest beauty lover out there or a makeup minimalist—we’re willing to bet good money that you own at least one lip product to take care of your lips. More so, in these days when there is more to choose from than ever before.
You might wonder why soft lips are important, but you’d be surprised at the difference they can make. You can get away with simply applying a moisturising lip balm, or a gloss to give your lips that extra hint of shine. But if taking your lip game to the next level is what you’re looking for, you have come to the right page!
You need a few basic household ingredients to make a lip scrub at home. The most basic one is just mixing one teaspoon of honey and one-half teaspoon of sugar together, rubbing it on your lips and rinsing off after a minute or two. That’s all there is to it!
This is a crucial step to achieving smooth and soft lips. Hydrating isn’t just about by drinking enough water. You can also apply lip masks for hydration, lip oils for soothing and nourishment and lip serums for volume.
Lip balms never go out of style and there’s a reason to it. Applying a thin layer of good, old-fashioned petroleum jelly before going to bed adds a protective barrier, seals in skin moisture, and prevents chapped, cracked lips. Use the flavoured ones for great taste!
To remove dry, dead skin from the lips and increase blood circulation, take a wet, soft toothbrush or washcloth and gently brush your lips with it. This is a simple way to exfoliate your lips. Or use an exfoliation mask to remove the dead skin cells.
Direct exposure to then sun tends to dry out your lips. Protect them from the sun by applying a lip screen with SPF 15 or higher. Remember to reapply sun-protective lip products at least every two hours.
