As we get older, the sexy plump lips of our youth tend to disappear as our lips drop, thin and lose color. Luckily, there are ways to prolong the youthful look of your lips and make them look fuller than they actually are. Products like Nabila K can help you in achieving your goal of having a youthful look. We’ve come up with a list of tips and tricks to help keep your lips looking full, young and sexy for as long as possible.
Tip1: Hands Off
When it comes to our lips, we’re our own worst enemy. A lot of our habits can lead to lip dryness, soreness and irritation.
Licking your lips feels great. It cools them down — but it also makes your problem much worse. Your saliva evaporates quickly, leaving them drier than before, and the enzymes that help your saliva clean your mouth and digest food are much too harsh for your lips.
Tip 2: Exfoliate
I’m sure you probably already exfoliate your face and body. But did you know that your lips can and will benefit from this treatment, also? Apply a dab of sugar and honey to your lips and rub gently, using small circular motions.
“Turning over those epidermal cells can help stimulate new collagen, which somewhat slows down the aging process of the lips,” says Neil Sadick, MD, a dermatologist in New York City. Finish with wiping your mouth with a warm damp cloth and applying lip balm.
Tip 3: Stay hydrated
Because your lips do not have an epidermal layer they therefore cannot produce oil like the skin does, they are more prone to dryness than any other parts of the body which can make them appear dull and unattractive not to mention aged. It is therefore crucial to get on the hydration bandwagon to keep the lips looking smooth, even and full.
