Lips are the first thing most people notice about us when we communicate with the. Soft, supple lips can enhance your overall looks. A majority of women use lip liners and lipsticks to get beautiful, fuller lips. However, no lip makeup will look great on you if you don’t have a smooth base for the same. Lip makeup will never look good on dry, flaky lips. Check out few tips and tricks on how to get soft, supple lips:
Treatments for Pink Lips. Create a mixture of equal parts of tomato paste and heavy cream, and apply to lips daily to add pink color to lackluster lips. The red coloring of tomatoes will be transferred to the skin of your lips. Maintain the pink glow of your lips by mixing red rose petals and heavy cream and applying this coloring to your lips. You also can apply beet root juice to naturally add pink pigmentation to your lips. Or, apply natural lemon juice to dark lips to lighten them.
Avoid using any lip balms with phenol, lanolin, parabens and anything with a fragrance. No botanicals either. People can be allergic to many ingredients- even those from plants. Phenol is often used in lip balm. It feels soothing when you first put it on but it can be irritating and cause the skin under the lips to peel.
Drink more water. Dry, chapped lips and skin could indicated that your body is dehydrated. Water is essential in keeping our bodies hydrated. Try to drink about six to eight glasses of water each day to keep your body properly hydrated.
Eat your veggies. Vitamin deficiencies may also cause chapped lips. Incorporating more fresh vegetable and fruits into your diet is a great way to maintain a healthy body. If you can’t add more vegetables and fruits to your diet, vitamin supplements are also an option. But, always consult your physician before taking any vitamins or medications.
