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.

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
