Just like any part of the body, another important place to focus for any woman is her lips. A lot of money is spent on cosmetics for face but usually lips are neglected and just a touch of lip gloss or lipstick is considered sufficient. But lips are very important aspect of beauty and it adds a lot of value to the makeup and the glow in the face. So here are few pointers that can help.
In India, lip textures are different due to exposure to sun but one can look at home remedies like applying honey, milk, lemon, milk cream on the lips. But remember that they would not be effective if a proper sunscreen is not used daily. Though there are whitening creams for the lips it is better to protect your lips from the sun than applying the cream.
Another way to protect your lips is to avoid licking them. If you feel your lips are going dry then you should use lip balm or a pure petroleum jelly to soften the lips. Trying to lick them will dry the lips further. While going for the balms it is advisable to go for those which contain oils like shea butter and almonds instead of the regular medicated ones as they tend to dry out the lips.
Another important tip to note is exfoliating your lips as often as possible. This can be done through soft baby toothbrush or by using a regular scrub. You must also stay away from using too many matte lipsticks which are very drying. It is always advisable to use a primer on your lips before going for a lipstick. The key to beautiful lips is to keep them soft and moist.
