As young girls, almost all of us love wearing bright lipsticks. But no lipstick can create a perfect pout if your lips aren’t well cared for! The skin on our lips is much thinner than the skin on the face. This makes it easier for it to crack and chap, and makes it all the more important for us to take extra care of it.
Here are some simple tips that will help you to take extra care of your lips during winter season.
1. Prep Your Lips
If you have dry, flaky lips, no amount of lip gloss or lipstick can make them look great. Prep your lips for your favourite lip gloss by first exfoliating to remove dead skin that makes your lips appear dry and dull. Try making a homemade scrub with brown sugar and honey to get those lush and kissable lips instantly!
2. Apply a Moisturising Serum
A lip serum has powerful moisturizing and softening properties which can help you maintain lush lips. Try making a homemade lip serum; mix a little honey with aloe extract and olive oil. Voila! You have softer looking lips in seconds!
3. Moisturize Your Lips Every Day
To maintain the effects of exfoliating serum and scrub, you have to give your lips the moisture they need every day. Dab on some lip balm or lip gloss, but make sure to use one with natural moisturizing ingredients like Shea butter and seed oils.
4. Try Natural Lip Plumpers
For noticeably kissable lips, adding some plumpness may instantly help. A number of natural substances can increase circulation to the lips and make them look more lush and full. A mix of olive oil, sugar and honey can work wonders, as well!
5. Choose Your Lipsticks Well
Both – the texture and colour of your lipstick decide how lush your lips look. When choosing a lip colour, look for colours that complement the temperature of your complexion.
So girls, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together!
