With the dropping temps and dry air, fall and winter can be very harsh on our lips. But there’s no need to worry; it’s still possible to have soft and kissable lips the whole year round when you follow some of these tips for beautiful lips. I personally follow all of these tips and I always have gorgeous lips. Take a look at the list of 7 best ways to keep your lips soft and totally kissable this fall.
1. Keep your lips hydrated
It’s extremely important to keep your lips hydrated in fall. Each part of your body needs water, and your lips are no exception. When your lips are dry, they’ll be more likely to crack, chap and bleed. Plus, they’ll look much smaller. Drinking enough water every day will help your lips look healthy and much plumper. So be sure to carry a water bottle to keep your lips looking absolutely soft and kissable.
2. Exfoliate them every day
One of the best ways to keep your lips looking soft and kissable is to exfoliate them every day. You can do this in a few ways. The easiest and fastest way to exfoliate your lips daily is to use a wet toothbrush and gently rub it back and forth across your lips. This will remove the dead skin cells and leave your lips looking healthier and fuller. You can also buy lip exfoliators in the health and beauty section.
3. Keep them moisturized
If you keep your lips moisturized on a regular basis, they will look much prettier. Use a lip balm at bedtime. I usually keep my lip balm on my nightstand because it helps me to remember to apply it before going to sleep. Follow this habit and forget about chapped lips this fall!
4. Apply an anti-aging cream around your lips
Unfortunately, as we age, our lips and the skin around them begin to age as well. This can make them look unhealthy and unattractive and can cause your lips to bleed. To prevent this, apply an anti-aging cream around your lips every day. You don’t have to buy a separate anti-aging product, just use a touch of your eye cream around your lips at bedtime.
5. Quit smoking
Smoking is terrible for your overall health. And it’s also bad for your lips, since it causes plenty of wrinkles around your lips. Smoking is a hard habit to break, but try to do it! There are some medications that your doctor can prescribe to help you quit smoking. Remember this awful habit causes early wrinkles, and it can accelerate the overall aging of your skin.
6. Swap out lip colors
We all swap out our summer clothes for fall clothes, right? So why not swap out our summer lip colors for fall lip colors? It’s actually one of the most wonderful parts of fall for me. It’s so fun to shop for new lip colors and wear something different! This fall you can opt for muddy pinks or lip colors with a hint of plum.
7. Stop licking your lips
This is an awful habit that I’ve caught myself doing now and again. Licking your lips makes them dry out faster, crack and bleed. One of the best ways to break this habit is by replacing it with a new one. Every time you catch yourself licking your lips, stop and apply some lip balm. Your new habit will eventually take the place of the old one and your lips will always look soft and kissable!
Keep in mind and follow these tips and you will always have soft and kissable lips! How do you keep your lips looking soft and pretty? What is your favorite fall lip color? Let me know! Thanks for reading.
