All of us love having soft unchapped pink lips.The skin on our lips is much thinner than the skin on the other parts of our body. This makes it easier for them to crack and chap and makes it much more important for us to take extra care of.
Our lips have a lesser amount of oil glands an have no protection of their own. Chapped lips are most common in winter, when the cold, dry air dehydrates our skin. Protecting the lips as you do your face is essential to maintaining a softer and more supple smile.
Tips for Soft Lips
• Remove all traces of makeup from your lips before you sleep.
• Use nourishing oils to massage your every day.This improves the blood circulation in your lips and ensures that they get the nutrients that are needed.
• Scrubbing your lips is important to ensure that they stay healthy and soft. Removing dead skin cells is a must to make sure that your lips don’t get any infection. Apply a small amount of sugar scrub to your lips.
• Apply a natural lip balm at least twice a day to moisturize and protect your lips.
• Hydrating your body hydrates your lips. Drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
• Do not lick your lips as once the saliva evaporates, it will leave the lips even drier because the enzymes in the saliva damages the protective barrier of the lip skin eventually leading to peeling.
• Keep a moisturizing and soothing lip balm in your pocket or your bag. These ingredients are rich in Vitamin E which soothes and hydrates cracked lips.
• Cleansing and moisturizing effectively provides a deeper cleanse, removing pollutants and residue while purifying the skin on your lips.
