No one likes chapped and dry lips. Even for applying a nice lipstick, healthy and soft lips are essential. But unfortunately, lips are often ignored in our skincare regime. Let’s discuss some tips to help you get smooth and pink lips with little attention.
Like your facial skin, lips also need exfoliation. You can choose natural lip scrubs too e.g., raw sugar, almond oil, coconut oil, etc. The best way is to apply a moisturizing lip balm before you go to bed and in the morning, gently exfoliate with a washcloth or a toothbrush to get rid of dead skin. This will also stimulate blood circulation and give you healthy and plump lips.
- Berry based lip care products:
Use lip scrubs and lip balms with berry-based ingredients because they are rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. These ingredients will nourish your lips and give you naturally pink lips.
- Protect your lips from sun damage:
The skin over your lips is also sensitive to sun damage. These days lip balms are available with SPF. Always prefer such lip balms over ordinary ones.
- Take make-up off before you go to bed:
Even if there isn’t any visible sign of make-up on your lips, gently wipe them with a make-up remover.
- Stay hydrated:
The key to getting naturally healthy lips is to drink enough water and try to stay hydrated.
