How To Keep Lips Soft And Smooth All Summer
Because chapped lips aren’t sexy
Summer means skin gets dehydrated twice as fast and that includes your precious pout. Give lips extra TLC this summer to prevent dryness and flaking. Here, we list down the steps to soft, smooth and sexy lips!
Slough away rough flaky skin with a gentle lip scrub at least once a week. Doing so increases blood circulation and gives your pout a natural prick of color.
Use ILIA Lip Exfoliator, which has shea butter, natural oils and volcanic stone that gently softens dry skin. On a budget? Use sugar (apply on lips as you would lip balm) or a damp face towel.
Moisturize lips before putting on lip color. Use hardworking products like Rosebud Salve to smooth those puckers. It also doubles as a skin reliever for rashes, blemishes, detergent burns and rough cuticles.
3 Go the extra mile
…And treat your pout to something extra. We’re talking lip masks and anti-aging creams to protect and rejuvenate skin while reducing signs of aging. Try Sephora’s Rose Lip Mask to deeply nourish skin in minutes. Finish off with Luzern Bio-suisse Lip Enhancing Treatment for lip care that naturally plumps your kiss.
Water is a natural miracle worker for lips (and everything else). So make sure to drink plenty of water, or 8 8-ounce or 2 liters of water a day. We promise, it’ll do wonders for skin and the rest of your body.
5 Remove lipstick
Always, always remove lip makeup no matter how tired or sleepy you are. Make sure to do so with a gentle but hardworking makeup remover, like VMV Hypoallergenics Oil Free & Complete Makeup Remover. It removes traces of makeup in a few swipes, leaving skin refreshed.
