Beauty Tips for Lips


I have always suffered from rough, dry, flaky, cracked lips. It sucks — a lot. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it also means I can’t wear lipsticks or creamy glosses without them settling into the crevices of my dehydrated lips, leading to a fashion disaster. In order to remedy this situation, I spent a lot of time researching the best ways to improve the health and appearance of dry lips, and now I’m passing my beauty tips for lips on to you!

How to Get Hydrated Lips
Unsurprisingly, the #1 way to improve the health and beauty of your lips is to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Drinking your minimum eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day will do wonders for your body, skin, and lips; I can see an instant difference in my lips after a day of proper water intake! Unfortunately, drinking water can be boring, so spice it up with some lemon and cucumber slices, or a skin care water supplement like Borba’s Aqua-Less Crystalline.

In addition to rehydrating your lips from the inside out, applying a topical hydrator will provide instant comfort while your body’s water stores are replenished.

How to Get Smoother and Softer Lips
If you suffer from dry, flaky lips, you’re no stranger to the pain of spontaneous cracking, or the disappointment of not being able to use all your favorite makeup lipsticks. After you’ve started a healthy water regimen, you can work on getting smoother and softer lips by using a lip moisturizer (even a basic lip balm will do), and exfoliating.

A simple DIY exfoliation treatment can be achieved by running a soft, clean toothbrush or washcloth under warm water and rubbing it over the lips in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes. If this treatment feels too rough, or you’d rather enjoy some pampering exfoliation, use a gentle topical beauty care lip product, such as Jane Iredale’s Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator.

How to Get Suppler and Plumper Lips
While your increased water intake will surely add to the suppleness of your lips, sometimes a little extra help is needed. Aside from invasive in-office beauty injections or cosmetic procedures, there are an increasing number of topical lip plumpers on the market. Take, for instance, DuWop Lip Venom, a zesty, natural way to improve plumpness and suppleness while enjoying lasting shine.

With a little extra water and a fun skin care lip product or two, you’ll be well on your way to smoother, softer, and more comfortable lips.

    Although this article is pretty good, and recommends some great products (I love Jane Iredale!), the keyword stuffing is REALLY distracting.
