How to keep your lips healthy and Hydrated
Lips are a very delicate part of the body, but they can also be quite resilient. When you use them to smile, kiss, and lick your favorite foods, they can get chapped or cracked. This makes it important to keep them healthy by following these tips:
Exfoliate your lips with a sugar scrub.
Exfoliating your lips is a great way to get rid of dead skin cells. You can make your own sugar scrub, or buy one from the store. If you’re going to make your own, use 1/4 cup granulated sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon of honey and 2 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil. Apply this mixture to dry lips and gently massage in circular motions for about 15 seconds–you should notice some foam forming on the surface after about five seconds or so! Rinse off with warm water and pat dry with a towel.
If you want to use a store-bought scrub, follow the instructions on the packaging. I recommend using a lip scrub once or twice a week. It’s also important to note that if your lips are particularly dry, you may notice that this treatment makes them even drier for a few hours afterward. If this bothers you, try mixing sugar with olive oil instead of honey (or skip the sugar altogether).
This will create a more moisturizing scrub. For extra exfoliation, try using coffee grounds instead of sugar or honey. If you don’t have time to wait for your lips to dry before applying lipstick, try first applying a lip balm over the top of your lip scrub.
This will help lock in the moisture your lips have just absorbed. If you don’t have time to wait for your lips to dry before applying lipstick, try first applying a lip balm over the top of your lip scrub. This will help lock in the moisture your lips have just absorbed.
Lip Health and Hydration
- Lip balms with SPF can help protect your lips from sun damage.
- Hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant that plumps up the skin and reduces fine lines. It’s found in many moisturizers, including lip balms, so make sure you’re using a product that contains this ingredient if you want to keep your lips hydrated and smooth.
- Vitamin E helps repair damaged tissue and protect against free radical damage caused by UV rays or aging processes like smoking or stressors like pollution or poor diet choices (like eating too much sugar). You can find vitamin E in many eye creams and lip balms!
- Shea butter has been used for centuries because of its anti-inflammatory properties–it works great on dry cracked skin anywhere on your body including those pesky lips!
Cocoa butter is rich in vitamins A, E, and K. It helps soothe chapped lips and moisturizes them to prevent cracking. It can also help heal cuts, abrasions, or burns on your mouth.
Olive oil is one of the best moisturizers for your lips because it’s so hydrating. You can find it in many lip balms and use it on its own to keep your lips soft and supple all day.
Coconut oil is another great moisturizer for your lips. You can use it as a lip balm or rub it on top of lipstick to make it stay on longer. It also has antibacterial properties that help kill off germs and prevent infections from forming on your mouth.
