Harmattan: Keep your lips soft and hydrated

The most crucial thing is to maintain your lips hydrated and healthy, even though soft, full-looking lips may be attractive. But if you’re like most people, you’ll need to spend a bit more care to the skin around your mouth if you want your lips to appear soft, pink, and plump. Here are some quick fixes for moisturised, wholesome lips: 

Scrub your lips:  Apply a high-quality lip balm before going to bed at night. After waking up, gently exfoliate any dry or dead skin with a toothbrush or a wet washcloth. Additionally, this will improve local circulation.

Make your own lip scrub:  Using this technique, you can use raw sugar to exfoliate the delicate skin on your lips and almond oil and honey to seal in moisture.

Remain hydrated:  Not getting enough water to drink is one of the most frequent reasons of dry skin. Your health will benefit much from drinking eight glasses of water every day, and fuller-looking lips are an extra bonus.

Go through your skincare cabinet: Not all lip-related beauty products are made equal. Shea butter, cocoa butter, and coconut oil are common ingredients in lip balms that give your lips a natural barrier against heat and pollution. However, other components, like camphor, can cause your lips to become dry. Don’t forget to throw away any expired items.

Use vitamin E: You can easily apply vitamin E directly to your lips by cracking open a vitamin E capsule. Vitamin E improves circulation and can aid in the production of new skin cells, softening your lips.

Use aloe vera to moisturise: For this treatment, you can buy pure aloe vera gel or even use a leaf from your own aloe plant that has been cracked. Aloe vera provides calming and restorative qualities that help lips look their best.

Use a lip scrub with berries: Strawberries are a fantastic component for strengthening the skin on your lips because they are high in antioxidants and vitamin C. The fundamental formula for this home treatment involves chopping up a strawberry and putting it to a honey and olive oil mixture. Try experimenting with blueberry varieties that are rich in antioxidants as well.

Citrus will brighten your lips:  You may give your lips a more youthful appearance and remove dead skin by applying a few drops of lemon juice. Simply apply some lemon juice to your skin and watch as it instantly becomes more radiant. Before using this cure, make sure your lips aren’t severely dry or cracked because it could irritate and make the situation worse.

Use Sunscreen on your lips: It is well known that exposure to the sun can harm the skin on your face. Even on gloomy or chilly days, using daily SPF 15 or higher can reduce the ageing process. UV radiation from the sun or even sunless tanning booths can harm your lips. Use a lip balm that contains an SPF component. For optimum effects, reapply sunscreen to your lips every hour.

Reduce your exposure to toxins: Chemicals, tobacco, and smog can prematurely age skin, giving lips a darkened or wrinkled appearance. Smoking, for example, can exacerbate this impact and make your lip colour appear faded. Your lips’ appearance can be enhanced by avoiding tobacco products and second-hand smoke. A scarf around the lips might shield them from excessive exposure.
