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.

Did something happen between you two in the past? If so, I feel like she might have some unresolved issues with you that you need to discuss with her. And, time doesn't always mean a lot. I've gotten closer to someone before compared to someone whom I had known for 8 years.

Dear Dish-it,                          Me and my friend just started talking again, and it seems like she regrets it. She'll leave me for the people she has only known for a couple of months, when I've been friends with her for a year. Also, she gets annoyed with me, and I don't know what to do.

I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.

My dog, Loki, was old and had cancer. He was 14. My mom healed one of his cancer spots but not even a month later, she put him down. He had life in him. He played like a puppy. If she healed one spot, why couldnt she heal the rest? He could have lived right? He was like my little brother, I loved him like one. He was family. Every since he passed, Ive been depressed. Losing weight and not wanting to go out and hangout with friends. Me and my mom get into fights more. At some points, I hate her for what she did. I dont dare tell anyone about my depression and I cry every night until 3:30 am. I have considered cutting but I dont want anyone to judge me. Im not going to but I just want someone to understand what his loss did to my heart. Ive had him since i was a baby. He was my best friend. And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help? I was mad. Can anyone relate? Can someone help me? ( im not going to a therapist btw ) UGH WHAT DO I DO?!
