In this post, I’m going to take you through some easy and effective ways to get baby soft and naturally pink lips. Because our lips don’t have any natural oil glands, they’re exceptionally prone to becoming dry, dehydrated and flaky. And although the regular application of lip balm can help to a certain degree, it doesn’t show great results when you have very chapped lips. Soft, supple and naturally pink lips are a sign of good health and well being, and luscious lips can also greatly enhance your smile. Here are some things that you can try at home to get baby soft lips. There are many lip scrubs and lip masks that you can make at home for this purpose.
1. Exfoliate your lips at least once a week:
To exfoliate your lips effectively, you will need an old, soft toothbrush or a washcloth and a good lip scrub. Although there are many lip scrubs available in the market, it’s easy to make one at home. Here are two recipes that you can try at home:
• Sugar and oil lip scrub: A sugar lip scrub is one of the most popular DIY lip scrubs. All you need is a little bit of white sugar mixed with some coconut oil or olive oil. Apply this on to your lips and scrub away with a toothbrush or washcloth and you’ll be amazed by the results.
• Milk and turmeric scrub: Mix half a teaspoon of turmeric powder with one teaspoon of cold milk. Apply it onto your lips and scrub it off once it is dry. Your lips will be healed, hydrated and incredibly soft.
2. Apply a lip mask as often as required:
Lip masks can do wonders for your lips. Not only do they leave your lips feeling and looking incredibly soft, they have long-term healing effects for your lips. Here are some amazing DIY lip masks that you can prepare at home:
• Glycerin and lemon mask: Mix one teaspoon of glycerin with one teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply it on to your lips 2-3 times a week for super soft and pink lips.
• Lemon and honey mask: Mix one teaspoon of honey with half a teaspoon of lemon juice to make this lip mask. The honey will heal and soften your lips, while the lemon juice will get rid of excessive pigmentation.
• Rose lip mask: Soak a few rose petals in a bowl of cold milk overnight. Take out the rose petals in the morning, crush them to form a paste, and add a few drops of the milk to the paste. Apply this on to your lips for incredible results.
• Aloe vera lip mask: For this, you will need a little bit of fresh aloe vera gel mixed with some coconut oil or olive oil. This ultra-nourishing mixture can be used both as a lip balm and as a lip mask.
3. Invest in a good quality lip balm:
It’s important to choose a lip balm that suits your lips. Certain lip balms can cause a reaction and may not heal your lips in the long run. Therefore, it’s a good idea to try out a variety of lip balms and then invest in one that really works for you.
Recommendation: BY TERRY Baume De Rose Lip Balm
4. Wear a lip balm with SPF:
For the daytime, it’s essential to use a lip balm that contains SPF. This will protect your lips from the drying and damaging effects of the sun and keep them soft in the long run.
Recommendation: Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer SPF 15
5. Don’t forget to take off your lipstick:
When you’re taking off your makeup at night, don’t forget to take off your lipstick! Your lipstick may have worn off or faded away during the course of the day, but it’s crucial to take off every last trace of it to make sure that your lips stay healthy and soft.
