6 Helpful Lip Care Tricks

22 Jan

Lip Care Tricks Have you ever really learned how to care for lips?

Generally you apply lip balm to moisturize them, but you don’t really recall ever really being taught how to care for them.

So, if you want to know the best ways to care for your delicate lips to keep them looking and feeling their best, keep reading below for 6 helpful lip care tricks!

1. Leave Lips Alone

A trick on how to care for lips of all types is to stop licking them or do your best to decrease the frequency. Licking your lips is often done unconsciously but saliva evaporates quickly from our lips and can dry them out. Another suggestion is to avoid biting your lips because doing so habitually can cause injury and lead to dry and peeling lips.

2. Protect Your Pout

Now that you know to leave our lips alone, the next trick in lip care is to keep lips protected from the environment. Keep lips protected from the sun and wind by using a thick lip balm that contains sunscreen and keeps lips moisturized. It might help keep you from licking or biting too!

3. Eat Healthy

How to care for lips isn’t just about what you apply to your lips and how you treat them. To have healthy lips, it’s essential to eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of water to keep them hydrated. Lips rely on a steady supply of vitamins and minerals to stay luscious, so don’t deprive them!

4. Exfoliate

Exfoliating is one of the most important steps in how to care for your lips. Lips naturally shed dead skin cells and require exfoliation to rid themselves of old skin cells and reveal new skin. Exfoliation also helps lip balm to be more effective since there isn’t a layer of old skin in the way. Make your own lip scrub at home or use a wet towel to gently rub off dead skin.

5. Be Gentle

One of the basics in lip care is to always be gentle when you’re caring for your lips. Avoid using lip plumpers that can irritate lips and try using makeup application tricks to make them appear larger. Also, avoid using harsh methods of exfoliating your lips like abrasively brushing lips with a toothbrush. Lips lack the protection our skin has so it requires us to be extra tender and loving when we care for our pucker.

6. Choose Natural Products

When you’re shopping for lip care products, look for balms that contain natural oils in addition to sunscreen. We suggest looking for ingredients like Vitamin E and Aloe Vera in lip balms. Lips balms containing almond and olive oils are also a good choice!

How to care for lips might sound super simple, but as you can see, there are certain tricks we all need to know in order to keep our lips happy.

Keep in mind that our lips are very sensitive so we should always care for them delicately.
