Before starting this beauty blog, I really didn’t have any idea how many people are concerned about their lips! Today’s informative guest article is all about taking care of your lips.
When you are considering your skincare routine, how much time do you spend thinking about how to look after your lips? Your lips can get really affected by the cold , as well as the hot weather, so it’s important to keep them in great shape all year round.
There are many things that you can do to keep them in tip top health, and in this article we are going to tell you loads of great tips for great looking lips. Now there is no excuse for not sporting a pout that any celebrity would be proud of!
Protect From the Elements
It’s important to remember the impact that the weather can have on your lips and skin. In the winter, the cold weather is likely to make your lips chapped and sore, and they can even crack and bleed. Before this happens you should protect your lips with Vaseline or anything else that blocks out the cold.
Then, when you think it’s all getting better and the summer rolls in, you have a whole new set of challenges to worry about! The sun can be very damaging to your lips so it is important that you protect them with a high SPF sun block. You can buy this in a cream, and also in a stick (which is better and less messy for applying to your lips).
Drink Plenty of Water
Your entire body suffers when you are dehydrated, but particularly your face and lips. Dry skin only gets worse if it is not treated, and if your lips are dry they can crack and get very sore. Combat this by making sure you drink plenty of water every day. You should aim to drink at least eight glasses a day for optimum benefits. Make drinking water an integral part of your daily routine, and always carry a bottle with you when you’re out and about.

If you are worried about the health and condition of your skin and lips then it’s a good idea to have a consultation with a dermatologist. They will be able to tell you how best to care for your particular skin type.
Another route to go down is to have lip Botox; this is an increasingly popular procedure that plumps up the lips and makes them look really full and healthy. It’s just a small injection that you have now and again and it has great results.
Home Lip-Care Tips
Every single inch of your skin can benefit from regular exfoliation, and your lips are no different. Some people exfoliate theirs with a flannel face cloth, while others get a little warm water and sugar and gently scrub their lips. Whichever method you choose, don’t overdo it or you could cause more harm than good. Finish by covering the lips with a layer of moisturizing lip cream.
Great lips set your face off beautifully, and with a little care and attention yours can look stunning. So, follow our tips and make sure you invest in some good quality lipstick so you can flaunt your pout to the max once it’s in great shape!
