Tips for Soft Lips

Valentine's Day is almost here and it's time to make your lips as  kissable as they can be! Making them soft and supple is super easy if you follow our five easy steps on how to get your lips ready for their close-up!

1. Protect your lips from sun damage

Most of us know how to protect our skin from the sun's damaging rays. But our lips also need sun protection to ward off dryness and sunburns (even when it's not sunny out!). Choose a lip balm with built in SPF to keep your lips in tip top shape!

2. Exfoliate lips regularly 

Cold winter weather makes our lips feel rough and chapped - so not ready for kissing of any kind! Keep them smooth by regularly exfoliating them. You can use a special lip scrub or even just some body scrub when you're in the bath. Right after your shower, rub them gently with a washcloth or toothbrush to slough off the dead skin cells that make them feel rough and get rid of any dry skin. Apply lip balm immediately when you get out of the shower to get best results! 

3. Don't lick your lips

It may be tempting to lick your lips every time they feel a bit dry but in reality this makes them dry out even more! Carry around your most moisturizing lip balm instead and apply as often as needed. 

4.  Hydrate daily! 

Drink a lot of water everyday to keep your lips looking plump and perky! Look for lip balms with natural emollients like beeswax and essential oils to help soothe and calm the lips. Apply before bedtime so the balm can sink in overnight.

5. Choose a glossy tinted balm over lipstick

Lipsticks can be drying so choose a tinted lip balm or sheer gloss in a just bitten berry shade! Soft pink and cherry tinted lip balms will make your lips look popsicle stained - so much better and natural looking than thick lipstick! These are perfect for pouty, kissable lips.

She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting Oh dear, that sounds like a dreadful situation. I've lived through similar difficulties in my own life, and my heart goes out to you, truly. May I offer you some advice? I don't have the cure to your problems or a magic wand that can make them disappear, but I do believe that some good can come out of your living situation. The first thing I'd like to make note of, is that everyone makes mistakes. As human beings, we have to make mistakes. There's no way around it; it's how we learn and grow. And as we get older, we don't stop making mistakes. Your parents are no exception. Although we look to our parents for guidance, and direction, and support, we have to understand that they aren't perfect people, and they make mistakes. They may not always lead us in the right direction. They may not always set a good example. They may not always be there for us, to encourage us and support us when we need them most. And that's okay. Everyone makes mistakes, and we have to accept that. But we can't let allow other people's mistakes to hurt us, my dear. And I know it hurts. Your mum might not understand how her actions make you feel. You said you haven't been the same since your parents divorced, and I know how challenging that can be to go through. But you know, some of the brightest, wisest, and happiest people I've met, are people who have dealt with difficult problems in their lives, and used them to grow as people. You can let your parents' mistakes get to you, and make you upset and depressed; or, you can accept that they aren't perfect people, accept that they make mistakes, and accept that their mistakes don't have anything to do with you. So here's what you do, friend: you can't stop your mum from going clubbing, and that's okay. Don't try to. Don't fight with her about it. You can let her know how it makes you feel, but don't get into an argument. Accept the situation for what it is. Your mother is her own person, and she is accountable for what she does; you aren't. Next time you start to get in a fight or an argument with her, just step back, and withdraw yourself. Try it, see what happens. Once you decide not to let other peoples' failings affect you--and you do have the power to do this--then you'll find a sense of peace you probably haven't felt before. And you'll learn from your mistakes, and the mistakes of your parents, and everyone around you, and you'll be a better person. Press on.

If you are getting abused to the point where you bleed, call the police immediately. This isn't acceptable behavior.
