Summer isn’t in full swing yet but we’re already feeling the heat! Now is the time to perfect your “pretty pout” routine. Take a look at our quick and easy tips that will keep your lips looking delicious all summer long.
Tip 1: Hydrate!
Water should be your best friend if you want to keep your lips luscious. Hydrating is just good for your body all around, but it will do wonders for your skin and especially your lips. Especially with all the pool parties and backyard BBQs that you’ll be attending, it’ll be extremely important to drink more water than usual to help you beat the heat.
Tip 2: Exfoliate
If you’re not exfoliating your lips regularly (i.e. once a week), you need to start today. Lips are more susceptible to dryness, which is why it’s so easy for them to become dry and chapped. Exfoliating your lips regularly helps clear your lips of dead skin, so not only do they look better, but they’ll feel better, too. Plus, exfoliating helps lips soak up the moisture in lip balms and lip treatments.
Tip 3: Nourish
Consistently nourishing your lips with a good treatment or balm is essential to keeping them healthy. Unlike the skin on the rest of your face, your lips don’t have any sebaceous glands-the kind of glands that keep skin naturally moisturized. That’s why a good lip moisturizer is essential; it provides the nourishing moisture your lips are unable to produce themselves.
