Lips are considered to be one of the most delicate parts of the human anatomy. Today, they are an essential part of the face and makeup. If they are healthy and supple, lip balms and lipstick will highlight them and make your face more attractive.
Most women would love to have sexy, pouty lips that glow. In order to achieve this glow, you need to properly take care of your lips. Even if you apply cosmetics to make those lips more kissable, it is always necessary to keep your lips looking healthy.
Lips are easily affected with sudden climate change, especially dryness; hence it is important to keep them moisturized. They do not have oil glands to moisturize them, so the first step in lip care is to keep them moistened, otherwise they will become chapped and cracked.
How to Exfoliate
In the morning, exfoliate your lips. You may be wondering why. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, stimulating the growth of more vibrant cells. It does not only work for the face and the body, but has lasting effects on your lips as well. You can do this by getting a soft bristled brush – a baby toothbrush is perfect – and gently brush your lips. Then add a lip balm to lock in the moisture. You can also opt for a more natural and sweet tasting approach by using a few drops of honey and sugar on the brush.
Quick Tip: Make sure to carefully read the ingredients of your lip balm and stay away from potential irritants. It is best to go for the natural ingredients such as aloe vera, beeswax, jojoba and shea butter.

It is true that whatever things needed for your bodies to be healthy are the same things that important for your skin. Taking in the tips for healthy skin care will benefit you in more ways than you know.
Before deciding on what to do with your skin, you will need to find out what skin type you have. Some of the products that you can buy are different for everyone. You may have sensitive skin, oily skin, normal, skin, or skin that has damage due to the sun and the heat. You also need to take into account the amount of stress you are under, the diet you have, any medication you are taking, and the history of skin in your family.
The basic skin care regimen should contain these three items: cleaning, exfoliating, and a moisturizer.
Cleaning the skin is one of the easiest things you can do. You will need to find a cleanser that will give you good results without causing your skin to become irritated. If it works for you then you need to keep on using it. Cetaphil is a well-known product because it is easy on the skin and is very mild. Try not to use a bar soap on the face because it can damage the skin layers. You should only be using a bar soap on your neck down to the toes only. Read the rest of this entry »
