The secrets to luscious lips are simple. It just takes a little bit of effort every day and attention to your overall health. Soon your lips will match your stunning summer wardrobe. A few key products and techniques are all you need and it does not have to cost a fortune.
Exfoliation is vital to get rid of dead skin cells and impurities. All you need is a good baby brush or any brush that has very soft bristles. Brush all over your lips gently for around a minute. A hard brush will damage this delicate area and cause abrasions. Some websites recommend toothpaste as an exfoliant but this is far too drying for the lips.
A high-quality lip balm is essential to moisturize your lips. Prevention is better than cure. Don’t let them dry out to begin with. Use a lip balm with a high SPF protection if you are going out in strong sunlight.
Apply lip balm after brushing your teeth in the morning and carry one with you so that you can re-apply during the day. Then apply again before you go to bed. Some lipsticks dry and chap the lips so wear a good lip balm as a base underneath your lipstick.
Around once a week your lips will need a nourishing oil treatment. You can make your own from coconut oil, olive oil, Vitamin E or cocoa butter. Apply it before you go to bed and it will work overnight. When you wake up your lips will be super soft and silky smooth.
This is where DIY treatments are the best but you don’t have to spend hours making fiddly recipes. All you need to do is mix a few drops of lemon juice with few drops of honey. Spread it thinly on your lips and leave it for few minutes before you wash it off. You can combine this stage with exfoliation if you add some granulated sugar to the mixture. It tastes delicious too!
A high-quality lipstick is the finishing touch to your look. The shade is up to you but all products of Goban Cosmetics are superb. Get lip liner and lipstick of the same shade. Always get a lipstick which stays on your lips and does not rub off when you eat or drink.
First, apply lip balm and allow it to absorb whilst you use a lip liner. Then take a small amount of foundation on your finger tip and apply it to your lips. Next, you can apply a layer of lipstick using a lip brush. Multiple layers are better than one thick layer.
Finally, use a soft tissue to remove the excess lipstick by dabbing carefully. You can always top the look off with lip gloss for that extra shine.
