5. Hydrate Every Day

Keeping your lips moist and kissable involves a lot more than just the products you use to keep them hydrated. In fact, it all starts from within. Maintaining moisture on your lips is important to having a smooth, soft pout. Making sure that you’re drinking enough water throughout the day is critical in keeping the moisture locked into your lips, as well as your skin in general.

If you want your puckers pump and perky, start by drinking at least eight glasses of water per day. Although this tip is hardly newsworthy, making sure that you drink plenty of fluids is important to keep soft, kissable lips. Being well-hydrated can help to avoid your lips looking deflated and wrinkled, particularly if you already have age lines showing around your mouth area.

In addition to staying well-hydrated internally, using a few products topically can also do wonders to lock moisture in. Look for butters, creams, glosses and lipsticks that are made with natural oils and antioxidant vitamins and minerals. There are many lip balms out there that feature additional ingredients like chamomile, lavender or geranium to help soothe and calm the lips.

4. Exfoliate on a Regular Basis

In addition to exfoliating your face – which should be done occasionally – you should extend this technique to your lips as well to keep them as kissable as possible. Exfoliating on a regular basis helps to get rid of old, dead, dry skin cells that do nothing more than make your lips feel rough and dry. This will help to stimulate new skin cells to form. You don’t have to use the same exfoliator product that you might be using for your face and body, though. There are products out there that are specifically formulated for use exclusively on the lips.

A good quality lip scrub is effective enough to slough off dead skin cells, yet gentle enough that it can be used on the lips a few times every week. Using an exfoliating product such as this is especially useful when you’re heading out on a date! A natural home-made alternative can include mixing honey and sugar to create a paste that you can use to scrub over your lips, followed by a rinse. If you’re looking for an even lower maintenance tool to eliminate dead skin cells from your pucker, try brushing your lips lightly with your toothbrush after you’ve finished brushing your teeth before bed!

3. Use an Overnight Lip Treatment

If your lips are particularly dry or chapped, then using an overnight lip treatment is a great idea to moisturize and hydrate your lips while you sleep. Women who wear lip products every day, all day, will be especially prone to dry, chapped lips, making an overnight treatment even more helpful. Before a applying a product to moisturize and hydrate your lips, gently exfoliate first to remove any dead skin cells that might get in the way of the product seeping into your lips.

While there are plenty of lip products out there specifically formulated to work moisture in the lips all night, you can use household products that you might already have laying around. One product you might want to try that works quite well is simple petroleum jelly, or Vaseline. Other products that can help lock in moisture throughout the night include olive oil, coconut oil, or even sweet almond oil. Applying these products before bed time will help to ensure you wake up with soft,kissable lips!
