It really baffles me why many are not giving enough love to their puckers. As you all know, aside from your eyes, the most seen and noticed part of your face is your lips. If you think those puckers are just for eating drinking, or kissing, think again. It’s actually apparent that they can pretty much make or break your entire look. Now, don’t think that yours are always just perfect because, most probably, they’re not. Having chapped lips is, in fact, one of the most common problem that a lot of us face. In fact, most aren’t even aware of it! And when they do, many would probably just cover them up with lipstick. Now, that’s just wrong as you’ll end up with a much drier lips in the long run.
In case you don’t know, them puckers take a lot of abuse. Aside from the fact that they’re constantly exposed to irritants (food, drinks, pollution, weather, etc.), they have no oil glands to keep themselves moisturized. And not like the skin, lips don’t actually have the same protection our skin does. That’s why we should really put extra effort in taking care of them. When I say “extra effort”, I didn’t mean actual extra effort and time but just be mindful of taking care of them. And it’s actually not that hard; just follow these simple tips and you’ll be on your way to a more kissable lips:
Keep Yourself Hydrated
As usually recommended, you should drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Actually, this will not just be good for your lips, but your whole body as well.
Keep Your Hands (and Tongue) Off
Whenever our lips feel dry, we tend to lick them a lot; worst, we pick and peel off dead skin from chapped lips. Do yourself a favor and don’t ever do that again as these make the dryness much worse. The best way to tackle dead skin is to rub/massage your kissers gently with your toothbrush every morning. This will not only remove dead skin, it will also increase the blood flow that will help make your lips look reddish.
You can do this by using a lip balm or a lip oil at least twice a day. These lip care products will help seal in moisture and will help make your lips look more healthy. Speaking of healthy, there are some products that also have vitamins and sun protectors, which can help keep your kissers soft and healthy and at the same time safe from the harsh effects of UV rays.
Well, that’s pretty much it! Told you it wouldn’t take much of your time. One last tips before I go: be mindful of the products ( and their ingredients) you’re going to use. Make sure that they are made by a trusted name and that they don’t have harsh ingredients such as salicylic acid.
