Here’s a “good to know” fact: scientists say the lips are one of the most important features you should pay attention to when determining someone’s character. After all, it’s our lips that express all our thoughts and feelings. All the more reason to keep your lips healthy and looking good, right? The reality is the skin on your lips is thinner than other areas of your face, so signs of damaging and aging can show faster and be more obvious, and no one wants that. So how do you keep those lips kissable? Check out these tips.
Nope, that’s not a typo. One of our favorite tips is to use your eye cream on and around your lips. Just like the skin around your eyes, your lips quickly show signs of aging. Give them the same love you’d give your eyes by feeding the skin around your lips with a nutrient-rich cream designed to stimulate the skin’s natural repair and functions; all while fighting fine lines and wrinkles.
Sunscreen + Lip Balm
Remember to treat the skin around your lips the same way you would the rest of your face, and the best way to fight aging is to use sunscreen every day. When applying sunscreen to your face, make sure you get close to your lip line and chin area. And be sure to use a lip balm with SPF in it as well. The goal is to prevent all the damage caused by daily UV light.
Keep those lips their poutiest by making sure you are hydrated from the inside out. The lips are one of the first places your body shows dehydration. Some tips for drinking more water? Set a goal, keep water close so you can sip throughout the day, set reminders on your calendar, and make a conscious effort to replace other drinks with flat or sparkling water.
Lip scrubs are becoming increasingly popular, and do wonders especially with dry, chapped lips. You can be a bit firmer pressure-wise, and the results are instant. Think increased blood flow and soft and smooth lips that create the perfect canvas for that kissable pout.
