Tuesday Tip: Talk That Talk

25 Sep

Hello Lovers!

Today I’m giving you a quick Tuesday Tip about one of my fave body parts…. LIPS!! We all notice them, whether just staring at a gorgeous pair or talking to someone…they are the spotlight. Lips are a focal point in much human interaction so keep them nice, soft and smooth. I want to leave you with the most important lip tip you will ever get:

Keep your lips moisturized and healthy!!

The first step to any lip look is to have your lips taken care of. Keeping them in good condition sets them up for wearing makeup or just going nude. Keeping them smooth always creates a great base for lipstick or lip gloss to go on smooth and sleek. You don’t want dead skin showing under your lipstick, gloss or tint. As the seasons change and we move toward fall and winter, the possibility of lip damage increases. Wind, cold and dry air are all factors when it comes to lips.

A basic step you can take in caring for your lips is to always keep them moisturized. Find what your favorite moisturizer is and make sure you’re using it!! As I always say, KNOW YOUR BODY, know what kind of lips you have and what products work best for them. Some people like chapstick, some like Sugar lips and some like aquaphor! Whatever works best for your lips….USE IT!! Keep your lips moisturized and you will always be happy with the result.

Biweekly lip scrubs help to keep your lips fresh and smooth without dead skin taking the spotlight. Lip scrubs are exfoliation for your lips….and this is so important, especially when the seasons are changing. Lip scrubs can be purchased or you can make them at home! For those who are looking to purchase a lip scrub The Body Shop has a product called Lip Scuff , Lush Cosmetics carries a lip scrub, Softlips (Drugstores) carries an exfoliating lip polish, and Bite Beauty carries a lip scrub (Sephora) . You can check for these products in store or order them online. For those who want to make a DIY Lip scrub….it is superrrrrrrr easy. Lip scrubs can incorporate many of your favorite items…. there are just a two basics you need to remember:

– You want to have a moisturizing agent in your scrub, so shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil….etc.

– You want to have something that will exfoliate/scrub your lips like sugar, …etc

My personal favorite homemade lip scrub is honey, olive oil  and sugar. Melt the honey(about 1tsp), add a little olive oi(1tsp)l and mix in the sugar(2tsp)….VOILA! Homemade Lip Scrub. I love this mixture because olive oil moisturizes my lips wonderfully, the honey adds a nice shine to them and the sugar is a delicious exfoliant!

Below I’ll post a couple of links that have good homemade recipes, and you can always google ‘homemade/DIY lip scrub for great info.
