Lipstick trends come in all forms, textures, and colors that we often forget the real secret to having the perfect pout. It isn’t the latest lipstick trend nor the formula breakthrough, but is simply a good lip care routine for that plump, luscious lips.
Like a blank canvas, smooth and even lips will magnify the full effects of your favorite lippie. To achieve those luscious lips and maintain it, you need to invest in time and effort. Of course, with the right lip care products, you will surely go an extra mile.
Here are five simple steps with lip care tips you can choose from to complement your usual beauty regimen!
Nurture the lips from the inside out by staying hydrated everyday. Drinking plenty of water should also keep your skin refreshed and your body cleansed.
Do not lick your lips especially when you are experiencing the chapped lips. Saliva has the tendency to dry your pout as it takes out the natural oils from your lips.
Remove the dead skin on your lips to reveal smoother lips. Regular lip exfoliation coupled with fingertip massage in circular motion will also help stimulate blood flow and circulation on your lips.
For those who are fans of all-natural beauty routines like Shay Mitchell’s straight from the kitchen lip hack, you can go for a homemade lip scrub recipe. Use the sugar and oil combination or the petroleum jelly and toothbrush combo.
For frequent travelers and those who are always on-the-go, try the Make Up Factory Bamboo Lip Peeling. It is made with the finest bamboo grains in a practical tube applicator that ensures easy use. It leaves your lips visibly smoother with a refreshed feeling out of its minty flavor and aroma.
Moisturize your lips liberally throughout the day using lip balms with SPF and slather a bit on before bedtime to wake up with softer lips.
Heal chapped lips with essential oils such as coconut, peppermint, chamomile, and lavender. If you are a fan of gloss or shine, try the 7 Oils Lip Elixir which contains seven valuable oils and fruit extracts namely goji fruit extract, pomegranate fruit extract, peach extract, argan oil, prickly pear blossom extract, propolis extract and rosehip pulp extract, that provides intensive care for your lips.
