3 Steps to the Perfect Pout!
The beginning of a beautiful mouth start when the lips are their most enticing; full, soft, and naturally rosy. To prime your kisser for lip color ( and smooching), follow these three steps:
- Swipe on some lip balm, then use your fingertips to massage it in. Its conditioning agents will fill cracks on chapped lips. Work it in for 30 seconds or so – this will help stimulate blood vessels and ensures that your lips look their absolute fullest.
- Next, run a dry extrasoft toothbrush or wet washcloth over your mouth to slough off dead skin cells. ( Hot tip: do it in the shower – the steam will soften those yucky dry bits so that they fall right off.) You can also polish on the go with a pinch of sugar. It melts quickly, so it won't irritate delicate skin.
- Finish by blotting lips with a tissue to soak up any left over residue. Still a tad dry? Dab on a bit of non greasy lip balm.
The think skin on your lips is vulnerable to the sun year – round. Prevent rays from parching your pucker by applying a balm or gloss that contains SPF 15 during the day.
