How to Get Soft, Kissable Lips

The winter season is a lip killer. Who wants to kiss dry, chapped, flaky lips? More importantly, why would you want to kiss anyone when your lips are sore, hurting and cracked? Put that spice back into your relationship with these tips on getting soft, kissable lips.

  • Use lip balm. I like all natural lip balms and glosses. Burt's Bees is one of my favorites.
  • Drink lots of water. This is seriously my number one beauty tip. You can't go wrong with being hydrated, inside and out.
  • Do not chew on your lips, or lick them often. Licking your lips in the cold will dry them out and crack them even worse. When you have flaky bits of skin, avoid biting them off. This will only reveal tender skin underneath that wasn't meant to be revealed. It will be more vulnerable to the elements than the rest of your lips.
  • Wear lip products with sun screen. The sun is the number one aging element, so protect your lips. SPF 15 or better is an absolute must.
  • Exfoliate! There are several ways to do this. One is to buy a soft toothbrush. Now, rub on olive oil, margarine, baby oil or vaseline. On top of that, rub on some buffing beads as an exfoliant. Brush gently at your lips to slough away dead skin and soften. Another great exfoliant is to mix honey and sugar together, rubbing it over your lips gently with your fingers. Rinse thoroghly once your done. Oh, and I said gently twice, but I'll say it a third time - gently! Don't hurt yourself.
  • Smooth on a moisturizer before you go to bed. You moisturize your face, body, hair ... don't forget your lips!

With these tips, be prepared to pucker up, year round, because your lips are going to be so kissably soft they'll be irresistable.
