7 Steps To Take Extra Care of Your Lips

It often times happens that your lips become really dry, regardless of which season it is–although it could be even worse during the season winter due to the harsh cold, and colder winds. Here are 7 steps to take extra care of your lips tips.

Basic Tips Everyone Should Do

1. Drink enough water

We’ve mentioned it time and time again, but drinking water is so important for your body and health–both inside and outside. It helps you have clearer skin, lose weight easier/faster, it helps quench your appetite when you think you’re hungry and, yes, it also helps with how nice your lips look.

2. Don’t bite/lick your lips

Constantly biting or licking your lips can make the lips lose its softness. Additionally, licking your lips too often can actually cause them to dry out faster.

3. Use lip scrub

Just as you would use a scrub or exfoliate the skin of your face, or even your body, you should consider trying a lip scrub to exfoliate your lips. This will help them become softer and flake-free, specially when they’re extra dry, and there’s also a lot of homemade/DIY lip scrub recipes you could try out.

4. Always take a lip balm with you

If you find yourself constantly licking your lips to try and make them more hydrated or moisturized, try to use a lip balm or chapstick instead. This will keep your lips moisturized even longer, and for extra hydration you could even try out an overnight lip sleeping mask.

Extra Trips For Even More Care

1. Apply lips night mask

As we mentioned above, applying an overnight lip mask is a great way to wake up every day with softer and well hydrated lips. Overnight-worn sleep lip masks are like lip balms and chapsticks, but a little stronger in its moisturization.

2. Use funny lips patch with hyaluronic acid and collagen

3. During the day or night, lips oil are the best

Lip oils can be used at different times of the day, although if you want, you could try putting it on before bed to wake up with better hydrated lips. However, it is not necessary to use them every single day, specially if you’ve already done the “basic tips” above.
