Hands down Angelina Jolie has the most luscious lips that Hollywood has ever paraded to us. It is no wonder why Jolie’s lips are lusted after. They are big, pouty, youthful and undeniably sexy. If you seriously want to sport a sexy pout like that of Angelina Jolie, you have to make sure that you keep your kisser super soft and free of wrinkles. Here are some skin care tips for your lips.
Skin Care Tips for the Lips
Your lips can use some exfoliating every now and then too. Exfoliating rids the skin of its dead and dry skin cells. Just as you exfoliate the skin on the rest of your body, your puckers can benefit from it too. But wouldn’t scrubbing your lips make them chap? It might sound like a contradiction but scrubbing your lips actually helps protect them from chapping. There are lip scrubs available with some brands offering sets that have lip balm too.
If you prefer the DIY recipes, rub sugar on your lips to make them soft then moisturize your kisser with your favorite lip balm. If you have a bottle of Argan oil you can also use it to moisturize your lips. The oil is loaded with moisturizing prowess thanks to its high content of Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and sterols.
Would you want to kiss a pair of lips that are dry, chapped, and burnt? Your lips need protecting from the harsh effects of the sun just like the rest of your skin. So make sure that you use a lip balm that will not only moisturize your lips but also protect them. Opt for a lip balm with sunscreen having the appropriate level of SPF. It would also be ideal to look for soothing ingredients like aloe vera in lip balms. Don’t forget to carry your balm with you wherever you go as you would need to reapply every now and then especially if you are outdoors.
Moisturize and Moisturize
Your kisser is made up of skin and just like any skin on other areas of your body, it needs some moisture loving too. Argan oil is a great lip-moisturizer. Lip balms are also an excellent choice. When applying lip balm, don’t be frugal and don’t be shy. Slather your lips with lip balm all the time. Reapply as much as you need to throughout the day and at night time, don’t forget to apply right before putting the night cap on.
You should look for a lip balm that is loaded with moisturizing nutrients and antioxidants such as Vitamin E. If you love lip glosses, you can also find some that have moisturizing properties. But we still recommend lip balms.
