Your lip problems can be solved by using some natural methods, without having to spend on costly aesthetic operations and lip augmentation procedures. Naturally beautiful lips would never be surpassed because a wonderful smile will always be key to make a winning first impression. Let’s see how can you get rid of some embarrassing lip problems and how can you obtain a fresher, younger look!

Chapped Lips

This frequently met condition of dry, flaky and cracked lips is caused by the loss of moisture that comes with aging. As you get older your lips loose their hydration. Moreover, the skin on the lips is thinner and as they are constantly exposed, they can easily get cracked. In order to fix this problem instantly and obtain soft, smooth lips, you need to exfoliate your lip skin with a scrub, made just for lips. You can easily purchase one in every cosmetic store or drug store.

Tip: As a great natural and money-saving solution, you can create a homemade lip exfoliator as well. All you need to do is mix 1 tablespoon of sugar with coconut oil, olive oil or cocoa butter to create a paste. Put a small amount of the exfoliant on your lips and take a very soft toothbrush. Brush your lips gently for about 30 seconds, as the skin is very delicate on the lips then wash them off. Apply hydrating lip treatments or lip balms that contain vitamin E, jojoba, shea butter, almond or coconut oil. In order to preserve the softness of your lips, it is recommended to use these lip balms constantly.

Fine Lines

These vertical wrinkles on the lips and around the lip area can be really annoying. Fine lines simply engrave themselves on your face. Although they won’t disappear, you can prevent and slow down the deepening of these wrinkles by applying anti-wrinkle and anti-aging treatments or creams around your lips regularly. If you are taking care of your skin right from the beginning, you can tighten the skin around the mouth area and plump up these fine lines.

Tip: Besides these great products that can be found on the market, you can massage your lips with coconut oil on a regular basis. Coconut oil moisturizes your skin and it’s also an excellent remedy to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Another great way to strengthen the muscles around the mouth and to delay the apparition of fine lines is by making lip exercises. For advice and detailed exercise tips you can consult your doctor.

Thin Lips

Many of us aren’t endowed with big, full lips and as you get older, the collagen layer gradually diminishes in the skin, therefore your lips can become thinner. If you want to achieve quick results, opt for tinted balms, that will keep your lips soft, pout and youthful.

You can also create the illusion of optically fuller lips by applying a proper lip makeup. As a first step, draw a line outside your upper lip with the lipliner, following the natural line of the bow. Draw the line a little bit above the real lip line then do the middle of the lower lip as well, a little outside the thickest part of your lip. Avoid lining your lips from corner to corner because it will look too artificial. Make the line rounder to visually add more volume to your lips.

Another great trick that you can adopt is applying a bit of foundation or concealer in the outer corners of your mouth. Blend it well into the fine lines around your mouth then fill your lips with lipstick. These are great tricks to enhance your lips with a naturally plump look.

For a long-term effect, you can also opt for a bit more costly but effective methods like laser resurfacing or injectable fillers, such as collagen, in order to give your lips a full, voluptuous look.

Take care of your skin and apply these wonderful tips for a proper lip treatment in order to have youthful looking, soft and kissable lips.
