Essential Tips To Keeping Your Lips Kissably Gentle
Smooth and healthy lips are every girls dream but it’s not always easy, right ladies? Whether you are biting or picking at your lips, I share these essential tips on how to keep your lips soft and kissable. Before diving into these helpful beauty hacks, lets get the facts straight.
Your lips are made up of thin layers of skin compared to the rest of the face. The top layer of the skin on your lips is called stratum corneum. Which also means that they don’t have any oil glands therefore don’t get the same treatment as the rest of our skin.
Exfoliate with a delicious sugar scrub that can be made at home. All it takes is sugar and olive oil as the two simple ingredients to clean off the dry skin off your lips. This is also a great step to take before applying lipstick since the olive oil hydrates those lips.
Are you using the right type of chapstick? Avoid the ones that contain dyes and fragrances since these ingredients are toxic for your health. Instead find a perfect chapstick that includes ceramides that moisturizes chapped skin.
Load up on vitamin B2 and B3 to help your skin’s ability to retain moisture. Eating greens such as kale, spinach, and green beans have the best nutritional value for you health as well!
Stop licking your lips! It can be tempting when there is no chapstick on sight but resist doing so, because your saliva has digestive enzymes made to help break down food and will irritate the lips more.
There are many other ways to care for those kissable lips, so do you have your favorite tips for your lips?
