“We are all mortal until the first kiss and our second glass of wine.” Eduardo Galeano
They say the eyes have it but the lips have more fun, so making sure your pout is perfectly poised for this big moment you need to take some time to make sure your lips are also in your beauty regime. A first kiss is nerve-wracking enough and the last thing you need to be thinking before your first kiss with your Prince Charming is about your dry chapped lips! There’s nothing as sexy as plump, soft pillowy lips, they just beg to be kissed! Deliciously kissable lips are yours with two easy steps!
Hydration is the key, so make sure you have water handy always, which helps make sure your body is hydrated from within! Lip care shouldn’t be overly complicated or expensive so there is absolutely no excuse for dry chapped lips during these winter months. Just remember to elevate the moisture in the air if you can by adding an air humidifier during the winter months which keeps your skin and your lips hydrated and you’re well on your way to super soft sexy lips!
MY TOP TIPS FOR A PRETTY POUT
- HYDRATION-WATER, WATER, WATER! 2018 IS YOUR YEAR TO DRINK.MORE.WATER!
- LICKING YOUR LIPS IS BAD –SALIVA CONTAINS DIGESTIVE ENZYMES THAT BREAKS DOWN YOUR PROTECTIVE BARRIER ON YOUR LIPS HELPING THEM DRY OUT AND BECOME EVEN MORE CHAPPED.
- BALM NOT GLOSS-LIP BALM IS MORE SOOTHING AND HYDRATING THAN A GLOSS SO CHOOSE SOMETHING THAT LOCKS IN MOISTURE AND THAT’S NOT JUST COSMETIC. MY FAVOURITE BALM IS LUCAS PAPAW OINTMENT ( THE RED TUBE)
- STAY AWAY FROM MATTE LIPSTICKS IN WINTER-THEY CAN BE TERRIBLY DRYING AND CAUSE YOUR LIPS TO PEEL AND DRY OUT.
- WHEN EXFOLIATING YOUR LIPS, NEVER USE ANYTHING TOO ABRASIVE-SUGAR OR SEA SALT WORKS BEST.
- LIP MASKS OR TREATMENTS ARE EVERYTHING! THEY RAISE THE MOISTURE LEVELS IN YOUR LIPS SIGNIFICANTLY AND FOR LONGER.
STEP 1 – GENTLY EXFOLIATE YOUR LIPS WITH A SUGAR OR SEA SALT BASED EXFOLIANT. DON’T RUB TOO HARD. GENTLY EXFOLIATE IN A CIRCULAR MOTION. EXFOLIATING YOUR LIPS ONCE A WEEK SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT FOR KEEPING YOUR PRETTY PUCKER SMOOTH AND KISSABLE.
STEP 2 – APPLY YOUR LIP MASK (K-BEAUTY STYLE) I’M A FAN OF THE CELEB CULT BEAUTY PRODUCT KNC BEAUTY COLLAGEN INFUSED LIP MASK. LEAVE IT ON FOR 20 MINUTES AND THEN REMOVE IT. TAKE A BEFORE AND AFTER TO SEE A SMALL DIFFERENCE IN YOUR OVERALL LIP SIZE AND THE LUSH PLUMP FULLER LOOK IT GIVES YOUR POUT! A BIG PLUS TO USING THIS LIP MASK IS THE MOISTURE LEVELS ON YOUR LIPS ARE ELEVATED FOR A WHILE SO YOU WON’T FIND YOURSELF REACHING FOR BALM EVERY HOUR! LIPSTICK WILL APPLY WITH EASE AND LOOK LUSCIOUS. ANY LINES AROUND YOUR MOUTH WILL SOFTEN.
