Pucker up - its time to give your lips the loving they deserve - smoother, softer & fuller!
Since the skin on your lips is thinner than the skin on your body, it tends to try out faster (especially during winter). It also lacks the sebaceous glands the rest of your face and body have to provide natural nourishment. Here are four steps that will help you achieve smoother and softer lips:
Exfoliate once or twice weekly.
When it comes to how to make your lips smoother, the first step is to clear away dead skin cells so that subsequent treatments can really do their job.
Hydration works twofold: you’ll want to coat the lips with hydrating ingredients and make sure you get enough water - FYI, the first sign of dehydration is often dry lips.
So ensure you look out for these ingredients when getting your next hydrating lip balm: hyaluronic acid, antioxidant-rich oils, shea butter and vitamin E.
Layer your lip products.
This tip is for the parched pouts among us. To truly deliver moisture, you’ll want to layer your lip care. Ideally, layer a water-based hydrator first, then top with your wax or oil-based pick.
Protect from the elements.
An SPF lip balm is your best bet. Protecting your lips from the sun is just as important as protecting your face.
To really get soft lips, you need to focus on every angle of lip care. The skin on your lips is your skin and like the rest of the real estate, its a dynamic organ that requires multiple avenues. A soft, supple pout is no quick fix, but once you’ve nailed your go-to regimen. You’ll never look back.
