Within the past decade, luscious lips have become quite the phenomenon. Celebrities are constantly sharing their own tips and tricks. However, those can get quite complicated and often times hard to achieve.
From home remedies to expensive lip treatment, women often wonder how they can finally create the perfect pout. After some first-hand experience and intense research, I have made a collection of useful tips to achieve lips that will have you smiling day and night.
4 tips for luscious lips
Create a lip care routine
Similar to a daily skin care routine, lips deserve that same kind treatment. After brushing your teeth in the morning, exfoliate by gently rubbing a toothbrush along the lips for ten seconds. They will feel smooth and clean immediately after (this will allow them to stay plump throughout the day). Following this, apply aquaphor or vaseline to ensure moisture and healing. These are both available at any local drug store, ranging from $5-$15.
Since lip balm can actually cause excessive dryness, try mixing in something new. Coconut oil, olive oil, and coco butter give lips that extra moisture. Try putting these on before bed, allowing the product to soak into your lips, for even better results.
Many times people look past the SPF label on lip care products. This is one of THE most important factors when choosing lip balm, lipstick, or lip gloss. Instead of ignoring the label on the front of the package, aim for products that do include SPF of 15 or more. This will protect your lips from damage now as well as later on in life. Neutrogena and Clinique sell some great options!
AH! My favorite. Lip plumper has recently become extremely popular. In order to get those luxurious, pouty lips, this is the best option! There are several brands to try, but some of the best ones include: Too Faced Lip Injection or Buxom Full-On Lip Polish. These both have the option of a clear gloss or a color gloss. Plus they are both under $30! Whichever you feel is best for you.
Have fun and enjoy!
All four of these suggestions can help women find the lips they have been looking for without any medical procedures or injections. The Winter can especially be cruel to those precious little lips so make sure to pay great attention to them. They are just as important as the rest of your body. Treat them that way and they will love you for it!
These tips will go a long way in creating new, revitalized lips. As Spring awaits us, try some of the remedies for a healthy and happy smile!
