With so much emphasis on bold eyebrows and multi-step Korean skincare routines, the lips are becoming a bit of an afterthought. However, the lips are one of your most important assets. Kissable, soft and luscious lips should be a top priority of any beauty enthusiast.
That’s why we have made an easy-to-follow to-do list of proper lip care, from keeping the skin of the lips as soft as can be to dressing them up to dazzle everyone around you.
Step 1: Exfoliate
Just like your skin, your lips can get clogged with dead skin cells. Lips also tend to have dry skin on them from coming into contact with saliva so frequently.
Luckily, there are now many scrubs on the market that are made just for lips. These are non-toxic and gentle enough for delicate lip skin.
Step 2: Moisturise
Lips need a ton of moisture as the skin can become dried and chapped easily. Finding a lip balm that uses rich moisturising ingredients like shea butter, beeswax and various oils is essential.
It’s also very important to choose a lip balm that protects your lips against sun damage. Choose an SPF of 15 or higher to adequately protect lips from harmful UV rays that can lead to skin cancer.
You should have a lip balm in your purse at all times in order to keep lips moisturised throughout the day.
Step 3: Prime
If you plan on giving your lips a pop of color, prime your lips first with a lip primer. Just like a facial primer, the formula used in lip primers allows color to stick to the lips without smearing. It will also help color stand out.
Step 4: Colour!
A new lipstick shade can transform your entire vibe. Red lips can turn you into a sexy siren while soft peach tones can give you a feminine, ethereal look. When it comes to lipstick colors, never be afraid to experiment so that you may discover which shades best flatter your own unique style and coloring.
We hope that this guide thoroughly illustrated all of the steps necessary to achieve gloriously beautiful and kissably soft lips. A gorgeous pair of lips can seduce the people around you and set the tone for your entire vibe. By following these steps, your lips will be in the best shape that they have ever been.
