beautyIt doesn’t matter whether you are single or in a relationship, we should all take care of our lips – especially during the cold winter season. These are my personal beauty tips for soft, pink lips:

1. Lip Scrubbing

Lip scrubbing helps you to get rid of the dead cells, resulting in soft kissable lips. Make a sugar lips scrub, mix in some granulated sugar with petroleum jelly or your lip balm, mix it well and apply a layer on your lips. Scrub your lips in a circular motion and wipe off with a damp cloth or cotton. Baby soft kissable will be all yours!

2. Use a Lip Balm

Dryness and chapping of Lips is one big turn off and if it’s not treated at the right time, it causes dark and pigmented lips. Apply a lip balm frequently throughout the day. But don’t go for the cheap ones – choose wisely! Avoid Petrolatum or Petroleum based lip balms as they don’t turn out beneficial in the long run. Check for ingredients like natural beeswax, cadillac wax, glycerine, almond oil and Vitamin E in your balms. Or simply apply Vitamin E oil before going to bed. My personal favorites: Beeswax Lip Balm and Ultra Moisturizing Lip Treatment by Burt’s Bees.

3. Hydrate yourself

Hydration brings out a pinkish tinge and a juicy look to the lips, while dry lips look exactly the opposite, dark and dull. Keeping yourself hydrated will combat the dryness on the lips irrespective of the season.

So, about time to get kissable, soft lips for Valentine’s Day!
