Your lips are one of the most beautiful features of your face. And you know very well how a good lip color can change your look.
But without proper care and attention, dryness or cracks can form on lips due to sun exposure or other external factors that are hard to avoid entirely. This is why it's so essential for everyone – both men and women alike - regardless of age -to develop a good lip care routine to maintain soft and pink lips!
In this article we will discuss how to take care of your lips at home.
Step 1 - Exfoliate.
The first step towards smooth lips is exfoliation which should be done at least twice a week, preferably during nights before going off to sleep as it is when healing takes place faster. To get rid of dead skin cells, use natural scrubs like honey mixed with sugar/avocado pulp/olive oil + brown sugar mix, etc.,
Use gentle strokes while scrubbing because excessive rubbing may do irreversible damage by creating soreness instead. Wipe away any residue left behind using cotton pads dipped in rose water.
Step 2 - Moisturize.
Moisturize right after the scrubbing otherwise, the skin will start drying out again. Don't just apply anything on your lips. Use a lip balm containing nourishing ingredients such as shea butter, beeswax and vitamins E&C. All these play dual roles doing two powerful things: hydrating while safeguarding even further from UVA rays.
Step 3 - SPF.
SPF is not only for your face and body but your lips too because lips are exposed to the sun which can be damaging. Also, we advise wearing hats whenever you go out in the sun. Because here's a thing, no matter how expensive or effective your lip products are, if you do not protect your lips from damaging UV rays, then all your hard work and money goes in vain. Hence it is essential to use SPF. You can also use lipsticks and tints with SPF; they will add color and protect your lips.
In conclusion, everyone needs to develop a proper lip care routine to keep their lips soft and pink. This includes exfoliating twice a week with natural scrubs like honey mixed with sugar or olive oil plus brown sugar mix, as well as moisturizing frequently using specially formulated lip balms that contain nourishing ingredients such as shea butter and beeswax properties along with vitamins E&C. For ultimate protection against the sun's harmful UVA rays you need to wear SPF. Taking these preventative steps now will help preserve your youthfulness down the road!
