How-to: create kissable lips
Are your lips feeling worse for wear thanks to the cold winter air? Well, with International Kissing Day just around the corner on Sunday 6 July, now is the perfect time to prettify your pout!
Try these tips and tricks to get your lips looking and feeling more luscious and kissable than ever.
Lip tip #1: Drink plenty of water
Did you know that dry lips are a sign of dehydration? Dry, cold air and central heating can wreak havoc on your body’s hydration levels, so keep your skin and your lips moist by sipping plenty of water throughout the day. Just be sure not to lick your lips too much as saliva evaporates quickly, leaving lips drier than they were.
Lip tip #2: Exfoliate your lips
A dried-out pout can leave lips looking flaky, rough and parched. Treat them to a natural scrub by mixing a teaspoon of brown sugar with olive oil and gently rubbing it over your lips in a circular motion. Gently wipe off the scrub with a wet washcloth and pat dry. Doing this once a week during the colder months will help to gently slough away any dead skin cells to reveal fresh and revived lips.
Lip tip #3: Pucker up with a hydrating lip butter
You can’t have a truly kissable pout without a slick of a scented moisturising lip butter, so keep your lips nourished all day long with the new NIVEA Lip Butter in Raspberry Rosé. A treat for your lips and your senses, this sweet new lip butter leaves a hint of colour and contains special Hydra IQ technology to enable moisture to deeply penetrate and get locked into the lips. It’s also enriched with shea butter and almond oil to leave your lips soft and kissable at all times. The sensuous new flavour will no doubt be a welcome edition to the NIVEA Lip Butter range that you already know and love.
Lip tip #4: Give your lips a natural boost
Want to make your lips look more luscious? Give your pout a natural boost with an all-natural ingredient most likely sitting in your pantry right now – cinnamon! Simply mix a pinch of cinnamon with a dollop of coconut oil and rub it gently into your lips. The cinnamon may give your lips a temporarily plumper appearance.
