HOW TO GET SOFT LIPS?
Here are our tips for velvety-soft lips:
1. Remove Excess Skin Cells:
Massage your lips twice a week with a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water or a homemade scrub.
2. Do not Chew on Your Lips:
This dries out the sensitive skin.
3. Avoid Too Salty Food:
Crisps and snack foods unnecessarily dry out the lips.
4. Don’t Forget to Care for Your Lips:
Lip balm is the secret ingredient for smooth lips. As your lips cannot produce any moisture for themselves, when water evaporates from the lips, they can dry out. That's why its important to give your lips plenty of care. Lip balms usually contain higher oil content and beeswax which can help seal in moisture.
Don’t forget to keep a good lip balm in your bag. When applied several times a day, lip balm keeps your lips nourished and plump. As well as their nourishing power, lip balms also act as a protective layer, blocking the damaging effects of the elements.
A Stubborn Myth: Lip balm is addictive! The rumour has been around for a long time that once you start caring for your lips, soon you won’t be able to stop. People believe that instead of protecting your lips from drying out, such products only make things worse.
Wrong! In reality, it’s more of a familiarisation effect: if you use lip balm regularly, you’ll get used to the soft feeling that it leaves on your lips.
5. Colour for Your Lips:
Got a date or a night with the girls? Lipstick is sure to catch the eye! To ensure your lips not only look great, but also make it through the evening feeling nourished, it’s important to bear in mind a few things: always moisturise your lips with lip balm before applying lipstick, to prevent them from drying out. Once home again, it’s essential to remove your lipstick. Long-lasting lipsticks in particular can only be tackled with a very oily cleansing lotion or cream – apply generously and then remove the lipstick with a cotton pad. To ensure you wake up with delicately soft lips the next morning, never forget to moisturise your lips before going to sleep.
Certain NIVEA lip balm products like our Pearly Shine Lip Care provide smooth lips with a subtle touch of colour as they nourish.
6. Protect Your Lips from the Sun:
Use a lip balm with sun protection like NIVEA’s Sun Protect Lip Balm to keep your lips protected and moisturised while you’re out enjoying the sun.
Your lips are very susceptible to sun damage, because the skin on them is so thin and delicate.
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
