Everyday tips for beautiful lips

Taking care of your mouth and lips is a must for lips that look smooth and kissable.

It’s no surprise that the first thing a lot of people notice about a potential partner is their smile. A beaming smile and healthy lips is high on the list of desirables for most people and certainly achievable by making a few simple lifestyle changes and perfecting your lip care routine.

How to make your lips more kissable

Hydrated lips look healthy and supple and it’s essential to keep yourself hydrated from the inside by keeping topped up with H20 all day long.

Maintain a healthy diet

It’s no secret that what you choose to eat can have a big impact on how your skin looks – the skin on your lips is no different! Eat a diet rich in fruit, vegetables and omega-3 fatty acids and you can look forward to smooth lips.

Stay away from coffee and tea

The caffeine contained in coffee and tea can have a dehydrating effect and can also cause the lips to darken in colour. Why not try enjoying a mug of herbal tea instead?

Stop licking your lips

Although it may feel like you’re doing them good, licking your lips regularly can actually dry them out further, often leaving them chapped and very thirsty for moisture. Keep a lip balm like *NIVEA Hydro Care Lip Balm” in your pocket at all times instead and reapply as needed.

Massage your lips daily

Gently rubbing over your lips with your fingertips on a daily basis will help to increase the blood supply to that area and make lips noticeably plumper and healthier-looking – perfect for your next smooch!

A kiss is a special moment – enjoy it!

Kissing is used by humans as a way of showing love and affection. Whether it’s a parent kissing their child goodbye on their first day of school or a couple enjoying their first romantic smooch, kissing has become an important part of everyday life and we just love to pucker up!

Our lips contain many different nerve-endings, which come into play when we have a kiss. This can instantly boost your mood and make you feel happier. Keeping your lips smooth and healthy will ensure you’re ready to pucker up whenever the opportunity may arise.

Keep lips protected with an SPF

The skin on the lips is thinner and more delicate than on the rest of the face and is therefore at an increased risk of UV damage. Make sure to keep your lips protected with an SPF like *NIVEA Sun Protect Lip Balm*, which has an SPF of 30.

5 ways to get the freshest breath for a smooch

  • Always brush your teeth twice a day
  • Don’t forget to floss between each tooth daily
  • A good mouthwash should kill any remaining bacteria and leave you minty fresh
  • Chew gum throughout the day to maintain the freshness
  • Sucking on a mint after meal times should get rid of any odours

Exfoliating: Say goodbye to flaky lips

Don’t forget to gently exfoliate your lips occasionally to remove any dry and flaky skin and reveal fresh, rosy lips underneath. For an easy exfoliating method, try gently rubbing your toothbrush over the lip area – the results will be instantly noticeable.
