To take your results one step further, however, it’s important that you are taking proper care of your newly improved lips. From keeping them moisturized to using a lip scrub, this article will discuss three ways that you can make sure your new lips stay in the best shape possible. Read on to learn more.
- Moisturize and Protect
Nothing is quite as unappealing to your significant other than leaning in for a kiss with lips that are dry, chapped, and peeling. And although warmer weather is right around the corner, it’s still cold outside which means that your lips are more prone to getting dry. Make sure that you are keeping your lips moisturized and protected with a protectant like Jane Iredale Lip Drink that uses a moisturizer and sunblock that protects from UVA. Though most moisturizers claim to have an SPF, this number indicates only protection from sunburn from UVB not whether it protects from the aging effects of UVA.
- 2. Drink Water
This step may sound surprising, but did you know that the more hydrated you are, the less likely you are going to have chapped lips? If you grab for a cup of coffee the first thing in the morning, consider grabbing for a glass of water instead. Although caffeine is delicious and helps keep you awake, it can also dehydrate you and your lips.
There isn’t a lot of upkeep when it comes to taking care of your newly improved lips. However, by moisturizing and protecting them and hydrating, you can keep your full lips in the smoothest shape possible.
