Tip Tuesday - Kissable Lips

With tonight being New Years Eve, I figured it would be a great time to post two tips to get soft, kissable lips!   

Tip 1- Moisturize 
Moisturize from both the outside and in. Drink lots of water to keep your skin and lips hydrated! 

Also you will want to find a lip moisturizer that works best for you.  Now I'm an old school kind of girl and prefer Vaseline over any other lip balm, salve, or moisturizer.  I keep a Vaseline pot on my night stand and apply it thoroughly to my lips before I fall asleep. During the day, I tend to go for a moisturizer that is a little less greasy than Vaseline.  I'm currently in love with the lip butters from The Body Shop. They have a great variety of flavors and retail at around $6.00.  

Tip 2 - Exfoliate 
The best time to exfoliate your lips is right after the shower.  Two household items you can use are a dry toothbrush or damp washcloth. You can use this by gently scrubbing your lips in a circular motion. 

Another great exfoliator are lip scrubs.  I have been using the Bubble Gum Lip Scrub from Lush Cosmetics. It's a little messy to use but for me it works great and tastes good too.  If you don't want to spend money you can always make a lip scrub by mixing sugar, honey or olive oil (I've seen recipes with both) and water. You will want to mix the ingredients together until it becomes like a paste.  

For either a store bought scrub or DIY scrub, you will want to apply the scrub to your lips the same way as above in a gently circular motion. 

Hope these two tips were helpful! Both me and Stephie want to wish everybody a happy New Years and a great 2014!
