7 Tips For Soft Kissable Lips #tidytip

  • Before bed, put honey on your lips, let sit for 10-15 minutes, wash off with cold water, then apply balm. Do this a few times a week for soft lips!

    Make a simple lip scrub
    Use a pinch of sugar mixed with a bit of olive oil and rub onto lips in small circular motions, then rinse. You can do this up to twice a week for a smoothing, moisturizing lip treatment.

  • Be careful with cleansers
    What's good for your complexion could be drying out your lips, which have very few oil glands. If your face wash contains salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, coat lips in lip balm before washing to avoid dry-out.

    Make moisture accessible
    Carry lip balm in every jacket pocket and purse and stash it at your desk! Always having it on hand means you’re more likely to remember to use it. Percia loves EOS Smooth Lip Balm Spheres ($3.29, drugstore.com).

  • Watch what you eat
    Anything spicy or salty can dry out and irritate lips, so limit your intake or coat lips in a non-flavored balm like Aquaphor Lip Repair ($4.29, drugstore.com) before eating.

    Cover up
    When it starts to get super cold and blistery, wear a scarf over your mouth. Cold winds break down your skin's protective barrier and make it more susceptible to dryness.

  • Swap your products
    Switch our your matte lipsticks for creamier ones. They’re more moisturizing, plus you'll be less likely to lick your lips when wearing them—another dryness culprit. Percia recommends Maybelline Color Elixir by Color Sensational ($6.79, maybelline.com).

    Don’t forget SPF
    Yes, your lips can still get burned post-summer. While most lip balm with SPF formulas won’t moisturize or prevent chapped lips, they will help you avoid a burn. And that’s just as crucial to keeping lips soft and smooth.
