Today, 6th of July is International Kissing day or World Kiss Day. These days most of us have forgotten the cute, simple pleasures that come with kissing. Kissing has now become a mere social formality. A kiss is an act that is used to express sentiments of love, affection, passion, friendship, greeting, respect, good luck etc. Kissing is an expression of intimacy. Kissing can be an enjoyable experience when our lips are soft and totally kiss ready. So let’s check out my post on How to Make Lips Soft and Kiss Ready.
Exfoliate regularly to make lips soft and kiss ready
Just like our skin, our lips also need to be exfoliated regularly. Exfoliation helps to shed off the dead skin cells from lips and makes way for new fresh skin cells. Without exfoliation, lips look dull and dry. Here is a home remedy to exfoliate your lips – take a tbsp of honey and sugar and mix with olive oil and Vaseline. No vigorous rubbing, be gentle. Wash off after 10-15 minutes and see the difference.
Say NO to dryness to make lips soft and kiss ready
When our body is low on water, it shows on our lips and our lips appear dry and chapped. Topical treatments is not enough, you need to stay hydrated from inside to keep your lips soft and kissable. So drink plenty of water to retain the natural moisture of the lips and also add high water-content fruits such as watermelon, cucumber, lemon, grapefruit in your daily diet.
Bedtime lip care to make lips soft and kiss ready
It is absolutely imperative to make sure that we remove every trace of our makeup, including lipstick before hitting the sack at night. Even if the color is worn off already, still wipe off your lips and remove all the trace of your lip color. After that, apply a moisturizing lip balm to wake up with soft, supple lips.
Use a washcloth before applying lipstick to make lips soft and kiss ready
Before you apply any lip color, gently rub your lips with a damp washcloth or towel. This will get rid off dry flakes and male your lips soft for the lipstick to glide just perfectly. And guess what, this little trick can also make your lips look fuller by pumping up blood circulation!
Use lip products with SPF to make lips soft and kiss ready
While stepping out in the sun, don’t forget to protect your lips from sun. The harmful UV rays of sun not only damage our skin, but it also darkens our precious pouts. So always apply lip products (lip balms, lip gloss etc) that contain SPF when you need to spend time in the sun.
Avoid biting and licking your lips to make lips soft and kiss ready
We often tend to lick our lips when they become dry. According to the dermatologists, while licking our lips to make them wet, we actually further dry them out, because saliva takes off the moisture from our lips rather than adding. And it can also cause pigmented lips. So instead of licking lips, keep a lip balm handy and apply as and when required. Also try to quit the habit of biting lips because it can potentially damage them!
