These lips are make for kissing.
The color a woman chooses to wear on her lips can have just as much to say about how she feels as the words that come out of her mouth. Cute. Sassy. Confident. Sexy.
But before you can pick the perfect shade for your precious pout, there is one crucial step that most women seem to always overlook — exfoliating their lips. Your lips are made up of some of the most sensitive skin on your body, and just like anything else, they can get extremely dry. Our lips lack tiny but critical glands that keep the rest of our body’s skin naturally moisturized. Because of this, our saliva is its only natural way of receiving any moisture, and we all know that the technique of licking your lips only lasts so long before they feel unbearably chapped. Exfoliating your lips removes the dead and dry skin that would otherwise block the flow of moisture. By allowing new, younger, and more youthful skin to take its place, you can reduce the look of fine line and wrinkles. Plus, your lips will feel beyond silky smooth! Here are a few lip exfoliators that you should try.
e.l.f Studio Lip Exfoliator – $3
Mary Kay Satin Lips Mask – $10
BLISS Fabulips – $18
Now that your lips have experienced the greatest scrub of their life, don’t forget to follow it up with a lip balm or moisturizer of some sort. The new layers of skin are going to need plenty of moisture to defend against drying out, especially in our famous Texas heat. Avoid any moisturizer with dyes or colors to reduce the risk of any unwanted irritation, and always make sure your lips are protected with at least SPF 15. These are some great options when finding the perfect lip moisturizer.
Vaseline – $3.99
Beeswax Lip Balm – $3.30
Vitamin E Oil Stick – $3.39
Now, you’ll feel even more fabulous when you whip out your favorite lip stick. With luscious, kissable lips, anything is possible!
