The lips are the sexiest and most attractive part of the face. Unfortunately, not everyone can boast of plump, juicy lips, but everyone can achieve well-groomed velvet lips.
Lips, like facial skin in general, need regular care. The complex of lip care procedures is no different from skin care procedures: cleansing, moisturizing, nutrition and massage. Lips should be cleaned every evening from cosmetics and from everything that gets on them during the day. To do this, apply cleansing milk or lotion on a cotton pad and gently rub it over your lips.
It is helpful to apply chapstick throughout the day. It moisturizes the lips perfectly. Instead, you can apply products intended for the skin around the eyes, which is due to the similarity of the texture of the skin of the eyelids and lips. It is necessary to make it a rule to be sure to apply gloss or hygienic lipstick before going out. If they are absent, vegetable or olive oil should be applied to the lips half an hour before going out. Such a procedure will reduce the degree of negative impact that cold street air and its constituent corrosive substances can have. It is also advisable to apply oil or petroleum jelly before bed. During the night, the beneficial substances of the oils are absorbed into the skin of the lips and restore it.
Home Lip Care
There are a huge number of homemade lip care masks. The easiest is to apply honey to the lips. It is known to be rich in vitamins and minerals. It will be useful to add a little cinnamon to the honey, and cover the lips with this mass.
A mask of sour cream, vegetable oil and lemon juice is a good moisturizer for lips. To prepare it, you need to take 1 teaspoon of sour cream and add a couple of drops of lemon juice and vegetable oil to it. Apply the finished composition to the lips.
Lip massage with a toothbrush is used when they are severely peeling. To do this, apply honey to the brush and massage your lips with it for a minute. A more gentle massage can be done with your fingertips. The importance of this procedure is to increase blood circulation in the massaged area, which increases the flow of blood and with it nutrients. After the procedure, a nourishing cream or any of the cosmetic oils (castor, peach, olive) should be applied to the lips.
There are many lip scrubs available. They nourish, smooth and nourish their skin. You can make a scrub yourself by stirring honey and sugar and adding a couple of drops of oil to it (ideally, use almond or peach). With this mass you need to massage your lips and leave for a few minutes, and then rinse with cool water.
How to choose lipstick
When choosing a lipstick, its quality should not be neglected. It should be remembered that when applying super-resistant lipstick, lips are exposed to drying substances.
In order to reduce the negative effect of lipstick, it should be applied over hygienic. This simple rule will not only protect your lips, but also moisturize them.
It must be remembered that such bad habits as biting or licking lips significantly injure their surface and spoil their appearance. Avoiding them is very important in a lip care program.
