We tend to neglect our lips the most from all our features. Especially in the country we live in and the lifestyle we lead: one minute we’re in a freezing cold mall, the next we’re walking on the street in blazing heat. Our lips are bound to get dry and the skin will start to peel.
Here are a few things you could do to keep your lips looking soft and polished!
First of all, start off scrubbing those lips. This will help remove all the unwanted dead skin and unattractive flakes around our lips.
Use a homemade lip scrub
Sure, you can buy ready-made products but it’s also a lot easier to make something quick in the kitchen that’ll cost you nearly nothing. All you have to do is mix sugar,a drop of olive oil and a tinge of honey together, rub it on your lips and leave it on for 3-5 minutes. After you have done the scrubing, make sure to rub some olive oil on your lips to give it moisture and glow.
Recycle that toothbrush
If you’re too lazy to cook up a home made scrub then use a toothbrush – preferable the soft kind. Gently brush those lips – it may sound weird, but once you do it, you’ll notice the instant change. Your lips will be softer and will look more plump and luscious.
So there you have it, two simple ways to keep your lips looking polished and clean! You should try to scrub your lips 2-3 times a week to get the results you want. If possible, find a lip balm that suits you, and apply it a few times a day. We heard that anything with a cocoa base is nourishing for the lips. Make it a habit – give your lips the love that they need!
