How to Make Sure You Have Kissable Lips

How to Make Sure You Have Kissable Lips

Grace Michaeli

Eating, talking, pouting, and smiling – our lips are always in action. But if you want to get some action on this Valentine’s Day, you have to make sure they’re as kissable as can be! You’d be surprised to hear that the suppleness, shade, and overall appearance of your lips can determine whether or not you get a smooch at the end of the date. Lips are also one of the tenderest parts of our body – with far fewer layers of skin than other organs. That makes them especially sensitive to even the faintest of touch. Which is great for kissing, but makes lips a special category of skincare. Read on to take your supple lips to a whole new level of kissable.

Lip Tip 1: No Biting or Licking 

We tend to instinctively lick, bite or pick our lips in certain situations. But remember: no biting or licking (unless your partner asks for it). It’s important not to make it a habit because it has a detrimental effect on the condition and appearance of your lips. Saliva doesn’t have the ingredients necessary to keep lips happy and chap-free. Dry lips only become dryer in contact with saliva – in fact, it strips the lips of their natural moisture. Biting or picking them makes it only worse. The first important step toward soft, supple lips to attract that certain someone is to get rid of these bad habits.

Lip tip 2: Moisturize and Protect

Because they are so sensitive, sweet supple lips need our help and protection. Help them stay moist and protect them from too much sun and harsh wind. Applying a balm on a regular basis helps lips retain their moisture and protects them from harmful natural elements. One way to acquire this habit is to apply a little balm every time you are in the bathroom. For protection from UV rays, look for a lip balm with SPF. For a boost of moisture, look for specially formulated balms with ingredients like beeswax, coconut oil, and sunflower seed oil. Some balms go the extra length of adding Vitamin E and rosemary leaf extracts to give the lips a boost of antioxidants. A good balm goes a long way in protecting and moisturizing your lips.

Lip tip 3: Drink, Eat, Sleep, Repeat

Your diet influences every cell and organ in your body, including your lips. Design your diet carefully with kissable lips in mind. Hydrating from the inside is essential. To keep your lips moist, the body as a whole needs to get its daily share of water. While not as tasty or energizing, water is preferable to more popular drinks. Tea, coffee soda, and juice stain the lips and are bad for your overall mouth hygiene if consumed too often. And bad mouth hygiene is bad for the lips. So think lips before putting anything in your mouth. Combine sufficient water intake with foods rich in Vitamin E and Omega-3 to boost antioxidants and encourage cell renewal. Nuts and fish are a great source of Vitamin E and Omega-3. Finally, to ensure effective cell regeneration, it’s vital to get enough sleep. Sufficient sleep is key to supple lips.

Pucker Up! 

To have the supple lips you want to be always at your kissable best, you need to break some bad habits and acquire some good ones. The lips are a special organ and require special steps to reach the heights of suppleness. Our three keys to becoming the king of kissable lips are: no biting or licking; moisturize and protect; and drink, eat, sleep repeat. Now go and be kissable.
