In order to avoid the later you need to maintain your lips and for that here are some tips and tricks you can use in your daily life.
Exfoliation process is a necessary process as it helps to remove the dark, dirt or dead cells from between the skin of your lips as they tend to get stuck. If exfoliation process is not carried out properly then it may cause some other severe problems like bruised lips and if exfoliation is not done at all then it might lead to darkened lips which both cases do not lead to attractive lips. Some of the ways to exfoliate your lips are follows:
The most simple and most used way of exfoliating lips is by using a toothbrush. Remember to use a soft teethed toothbrush and not the hard one as it can damage the lips. Simply rub your lips in a circular motion slowly and let the dead skin cells fall off and in addition increase the blood flow in your lips making them appear more pinkish and soft. And it is the easiest way as it can be done daily after brushing your teeth maybe at night so it can also make sure that all the make-up is removed properly.
Another way to exfoliate your lips is to use a soft scrub. One can also make this scrub using home remedies like making a paste of sugar with honey and coconut oil. Either way one can use this scrub to exfoliate your lips just by applying it to your lips and massaging your lips for a minute or so before rinsing it off with warm water.
Moisturization is the key to achieving beautiful pink soft lips. One can use any moisturizing lip balm with SPF value 15 or 30 during day time and for night one can apply a thick layer of petroleum jelly if they choose. Your lips get drier during very hot or very cold seasons so during these days you need to be extra vigilant in moisturizing your dry lips. Another way to moisturize is to use home remedies like natural oils like coconut oil, Olive oil or even cocoa butter to help keep your lips from drying.

Avoid Smoking: We all already know that smoking is bad for health here is another reason why one should avoid smoking. The cigarette you smoke contains tobacco in them which can damage your lips by making them dull and dark. Another thing is smoking causes a little bit of dehydration in your body which is bad for your lips as they can turn dry and flaky. So its best that you try to quit smoking before it is too late.
Never Pick On Your Lips: It’s natural to pick on your lips when you are nervous but try to avoid it as much as possible as it can cause more harm like if you pick on your lips with your teeth then it is bind to leave some mark which may later become some serious injury like bruised lips. Secondly try not to lick your lips too much as it can cause more harm than good. Licking your lips to keep them moisturized is common thinking but the fact is the more you lick your lips the more saliva is wasted and instead of your lips getting moisturized it gets dry due to dehydration because of saliva.
Apply Lip Balm: In today’s life your lips can get damage due to any number of reasons like pollution, sun damage, etc. To prevent this from happening you have to make a habit of applying lip balm daily which has SPF value of at least 15 to 30.
Cosmetics: Firstly never wear any cosmetics that can harm your lips in any way. Secondly always remember to remove your lip make-up before going to bed as it might make your lips dry if you keep them over night. Try removing it with an effective make-up remover or use natural oils like olive oil. And if you are not wearing any make-up then too just wash your lips after brushing or better more exfoliate them softly as I suggested before.
Moisturizing your lips from outside can only get you so far but in order to protect your lips you need to keep your body hydrated. So, drink plenty of water every day that is to say drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of water regularly. And in addition to that eat healthy and watery things like water melon, tomato, cucumber, etc.
Makeup for flawless lips
Sometime your lips are perfect but the only thing is that you don’t know how to present them or how to make them appear beautiful so in this part you will learn some tips for lip make-up and presentation.
First try to find a perfect shade of pink lipstick to cover your lips and then find a matching lip liner to go with it.
Second would be to apply the lip liner properly over the edges of your lips. If you are uncomfortable then use your fingers to get it towards the center of your lips.
Then apply the lipstick and make sure that it stays within the lip liner and does not fan out or fade out.
Try removing the excess lipstick using a tissue paper. Simply fold the tissue paper and place it between your lips and then press your lips and that will get the job done.
And finally try a lip gloss or lip balm to seal the lipstick so it does not fan out while drinking or eating and it will also help to keep your lips moisturized with a shine to it.
