Most of the time people overlook a very prominent part of their face – yes, it is their lips. Our lips take a beating on a daily basis, from exposure to the sun and the wind. People suffer various lip damages from dry lips to peeling lips.
Tips for perfect pouting lips
# Always keep your lips moisturized
Dryness and chapping of lips is one big turn off and if it’s not treated at the right time, can cause dark and pigmented lips. Always keep a lip balm handy, and apply it frequently throughout the day. Lip balms can be addictive, so choose them judiciously. Do not use petroleum based lip balms as they may be harmful in the long run.
# Hydrate your body to keep your lips hydrated
Keeping oneself hydrated will prevent the dryness on the lips irrespective of the season.
# Avoid exposure to the sun
Darkening of the lips may occur due to the excessive presence of melanin pigment in the region. It is ideal to protect oneself from the harmful UV rays of the sun by applying lip products like lip balms and lip sticks which contain SPF or other sunscreens, to ensure healthy lips.
# Use only good cosmetics
Using a lot of artificial cosmetics on the lips can be harmful as they may contain corrosive and unhealthy chemicals. Regular use of cosmetics, especially the ones which are cheap in quality, on the lips can result in pigmentation. It will be wiser to use cosmetics that have nutrients and natural extracts like shea butter, pomegranate seed oil etc in their composition.
Lip care should not be avoided and overlooked and should be just as important as the rest of your skin care routine
