The countdown is on! Valentine's Day is just over a month away. So, ladies, it’s time to get your lips perfectly smooth, soft and plump, A-STAT!
But how do you achieve the perfect pout? We’ve created a guide to totally #kissable lips, ready just in time for Cupid’s arrow to strike!
Sweet as sugar
Nobody wants to pash someone with dry, rough lips #notavibe! Ladies… it’s time to get creative and put your DIY goggles on cause we’re making sugar lip scrubs!
If you’re sitting behind your computer with a puzzled expression on your face, don’t sweat. A lip scrub is basically an exfoliant you use once or twice a week for your lips. The rough sugar granules buff away dead skin cells, whilst the other smooth ingredients leave lips soft and subtle - perfect make-out material!
The best part is they are super easy to whip up and we can almost guarantee you have the ingredients already in your pantry at home!
Coconut honey lip scrub
(Recipe adapted from Stylecraze)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon organic honey
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon lukewarm water
How to make:
- Start by mixing the coconut oil and honey.
- Add the brown sugar and the lukewarm water to this mixture.
- Rub the mixture on your lips in a circular motion for two to three minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water.
Protect, Protect, Protect
You definitely won’t want to be kissing that special someone with burnt, irritated lips. Not commonly known by many people, lips are actually one of the most common places to become sunburnt when not protected. This is because many people often rub around the lip area when applying their morning dose of sunscreen.
Burnt lips are on no-ones Valentine's wish list, so always ensure you either apply sunscreen directly on your lips in the morning or use a lip balm throughout the day with an SPF rating of 30+ or above.
Big, juicy lips are so much more of a #kissme vibe as opposed to their thin, whispy cousins. After all, it’s no secret Kylie Jenner is one of the most ‘lip-idolised’ people in the world - and her lips are huge!
But unlike Kylie, many of us flat-lipped ladies aren’t blessed with an unlimited source of disposable income to get our lips injected with a filler. Plus, needles totally scare us so that’s out of the question even to begin with! OMG, what’s a girl to do?
For a quick lip plump (ready just in time for that v-day smooch), try a lip gloss that is formulated to temporarily enlarge the appearance of your lips. These types of lip products are a great way to achieve that ‘fuller’ look without the risk, cost or pain of lip injections. Plus, the gloss aspect adds shine and colour, making your lips look totally kiss-worthy #hellyeah!
Psst! Need a little help in the gloss department but don’t know where to start? Our BB Lip Plumper uses a trio of natural, circulation-enhancing ingredients (peppermint and cinnamon bark oils, and capsicum extract) to really get those lips large and in-charge.
