Beautiful lips that make you want to kiss them; who wouldn’t want that? Moreover, lips are the most beautiful container of a radiant smile. Therefore, you need to give your lips some love as well. In this blog, we will tell you how to get kissable lips. Here are the Do’s and Don’ts for the most beautiful kissable lips!
What You Should Do:
Exfoliate. Most people know this, but almost no one does it.
Just like your skin, your lips need to be exfoliated regularly to remove dead skin cells. It doesn’t take much time and will give you optimal results. However, be aware that lips are sensitive and fragile.
You can use a special lip scrub, or you can gently wipe your lips with a wet toothbrush (like brushing your teeth, but on your lips). Alternatively, use a dry cloth or towel. After exfoliation, lubricate your lips with a moisturizing and nourishing lip balm.
The secret to kissable, beautiful lips lies in good lip care. Choosing quality is essential because cheap, wax-based balms (like the Labello’s of this world) will dry out your lips and thus drive you further away from home.
Therefore, always choose products free of drying ingredients, synthetic fragrances, and dyes, and have healing and moisturizing properties. For instance, you can try looking for an advanced lip treatment that prevents fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth while caring for your lips. Otherwise, avocado oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter help soften the skin and reduce the dryness of the lips. If you prefer your skincare time at night, look for a night lip treatment.
If you do a lip mask from time to time, your lips will be eternally grateful. Apply a layer of nourishing lip balm to your lips or a small amount of a moisturizing mask (the kind you usually use on your face). Let it soak in for about 5 minutes. Then remove the excess cream with a tissue. Your lips will be beautiful again.
For Women Only: Sexy Lip Gloss
Shiny lips are a feast for the eyes. Lip gloss is the best choice to make your lips look more attractive.
Tip: Apply lip gloss only to the center of your lips to make them look thicker and fuller. Never press your lips together after applying lip gloss. The trend is great, but the shine will be lost.
What You Should Not Do
Do Not Pull Your Skin
If you have pimples or dead skin on your lips, you will be crying for help. Healthy lips do not show spots. If you have dead/dry skin, do not pull the skin. You risk damaging it, and it will take a long time for your lips to smooth out and heal again.
Don’t Lick Your Lips
If you lick your lips a lot, it could be a sign of stress, but it could also be a sign that your lips are dry. Moistening them with saliva will not solve the problem. It will only make your lips even more dehydrated. So, always carry a nourishing lip balm (without drying ingredients!) with you at all times and avoid licking lick your lips.
Beware of Hot Drinks
Hot drinks such as coffee and tea can severely burn your lips. It can cause blisters and leave scars. So, be careful with (too hot) drinks.
Protect Your Lips From Uv Rays
Your lips can get burned as well, which is not fun at all. They can form blisters (white) and leave scars, which is certainly not what you want. To avoid these, use UV filters to protect your lips and your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays.
Don’t Bite Your Lips
Biting your lips can cause damage and inflammation to your lips. Many people bite their lips under stress. When you are nervous, put some chewing gum (without sugar) in your mouth and try not to bite your lips.
Do Not Expose Your Lips To Wind or Dry Air From Air Conditioners
Do not walk, cycle or jog without protecting your lips. Keep a nourishing lip balm handy if you work in an air-conditioned room, as it will dry out your lips as well as your skin.
