4 steps to kissable lips

by Martha Adams

Necessary to talk with, essential for eating with , and superb for smooching with – yep, we certainly love our lips! Butare you guilty of not spoiling them rotten with super nourishing lip balms and colourful lipsticks they’d love?

To ensure your pout stays as perfectly pretty as possible, you need to invest a little more in them than the second it takes to apply a simple slick of lipstick. Follow these four steps and we guarantee you’ll achieve utterly kissable lips in no time at all…

1.) Scrub them…

If you think that scrubbing your legs is as far as your exfoliating routine has to go, then oh, how mistaken you are! You lick your lips and eat with them day in and day out, so naturally they’re going to dry out a lot quicker than any other part of our bodies. They’re also constantly exposed to the elements, which means that dry skin accumulates faster, and has to be taken care of if you want a super smooth pair of smoochers. Giving your lips a gentle scrub every week will help eliminate chapped, flaky skin and keep your lips looking and feeling super soft. Why not try Lush Lip Scrubs? The selection of sweet flavours will leave you wanting more.

2.) Protect them…

Especially in the summer months, protecting ourselves with SPF is always important. This applies in winter too – and just like we apply it to our bodies, we need to be mindful of protecting our lips too. Try a nourishing lip balm that contains SPF, and notice the difference! We like SunSense Lip Balm SPF 30+ for it’s soft and velvety gel formula, and Bonne Bell Outdoor Lip Balm SPF30+ for its four-hour water resistency .

It’s also important to give your lips a shot of nourishment whenever you can. A super hydrating balm is essential for everyday use – either whenever you find yourself with bare lips or , at the very least , slicked on before bedtime as an intense lip treatment while you sleep. We like ASAP Hydrating Lip Balm as it’s packed with soothing and softening ingredients like cocoa butter, shea butter and essential oils.

3.) Dress them…

There’s no better confidence booster than a slick of bold, bright lipstick. It’s the finishing touch to a power outfit, and the perfect solution to pull you out of a slump. With a myriad of lip colours and textures to choose from everyday, finding a daily lip hue can be harder than deciding what to wear in the morning! But as long as you keep experimenting you’re sure to find a strong, silky lip shade that suits you – making you ready for anything! We love the Innoxa Lovely Lips range – with 12 whimsical shades to choose from, they’re bound to be the answer to your dull lip prayers.

4.) Treat them…

When you begin to feel a tingle and it’s a day before that big party, it can seem as though your world is coming to an end. You know you’re about to be hit with a big , ugly cold sore, and there’s not a whole heap you can do about it. Or is there? While other cold sore creams are applied on top of the affected area (and often rubbed away), COMPEED® Total Care™ Cold Sore Patches work fast to provide seven benefits in one, to ensure that you’re party ready and feeling great – fast! And don’t worry about your lips looking less than perfect either; the COMPEED® Total Care patches are invisible, meaning that lipstick can be seamlessly applied over them, so nobody even has to know! Need to get rid of your cold sore even faster? Try COMPEED® Total Care™ Cold Sore Night Patch.

If your lips could talk, would they say you’re guilty of not looking after them as best you could?
