Have your Lips SOFT and SENSUAL

If, I wrote in the article posted bellow that "the eyes are the mirror of the soul" then surely the lips are the pathway to your heart.
A wonderful pair of lips can truly make your face look dazzling, more contented and accurate. Since lips are the most striking aspect of the face, just next to your eyes. So, you must be eager to know how to get those wonderful lips.   

  • Exfoliate Gentle. Lips are more sensitive than the rest of your face, so facial scrubs can be too irritating.Use sugar to remove dead skin or rub a soft, dry toothbrush over your lips once a week. Lip treatments containing salicylic acid can also peel off the dead skin without harm. 
  • Add Moisture. Put on lip balm then blot away the excess before adding lipstick. Avoid flavored lip balms, however, as they may tempt you to lick your lips (causing chapping). Lips that are cracked ot bleeding need treatment with 1 percent hydrocortisone cream and an over the counter antibacterial ointment such as Polysporin.
  • Drink Water.Drink plenty of water as it will keep your lips hydrated throughout the day. Make sure that your lips don’t look chapped, rough or dry.
  • Avoid Bitting or Licking.Always avoid licking your lips. It may think like you are given that temporary relief, the saliva evaporates quickly, leaving your lips even drier than before they were licked. Hence, you should try to use a quality lip balm that is not scented, as it influences you to lick your lips more often.
  • Avoid Smoking and Using Straws.Smoking and the use of straws increase lines around the mouth due to puckering required when using them. As well, the chemicals in cigarettes reduce oxygen in the body which is necessary for healthy cell regeneration.
  • Shape Your Lips.You can create an illusion of dimension, if your lips are thin. Dabbing a dot of gloss on the central area of your lower lip will do the trick for thin lips. Gloss will reflect light and impart your lips a fuller appearance. On the other hand, if you have fuller lips, you can make them appear thin by applying dark shades of lipstick. Nude and matte shades will also help to downsize fuller lips.
  • Eat a Healthy Diet. Healthy nutritious diet of fruits and vegetables will keep your lips beautiful, pink and hydrated. Try to include green vegetables, fruit juices, and salads in your diet.
  • Smile. Just, because you got a perfect pair of lips you are taking care about ;)
And now it's time for some Mystery Ingredients  :)
If you have a cold sore or are prone to them, one of the best ways to treat them is the application of tea bags. Mint tea bags have been known to decrease the swelling of the lips and to alleviate pain. Teas like lemon and mint have tannic acid, an ingredient that operates like an anti-viral agent to treats the root cause of cold sores.
Aloe vera is a great way to keep your lips smooth, soft and pain-free. The best lips are those that are moisturized. Thus, when it comes time to invest in lotions or lip balms, look for those that contain this ingredient.
