Four Special Tips For Lips

Click here for a printable version of this tip

Lips need special care. Keep your pucker-uppers
in top form, because not only do chapped lips look
terrible but they're also prone to infections:

* EXFOLIATE. Apply udder balm or petroleum
jelly on your lips, gently rubbing with a soft toothbrush.
Apply lip balm or lipstick. This not only makes lips
feel smooth but creates that popular pouty look that
you've seen and admired on models.

* NIGHTLY. Break open a vitamin E capsule and
rub over lips. This will allow the lips to heal. In the
morning, brush away the excess vitamin E. Dead
skin will also be sloughed off.

* LIP TREATMENT. Black tea is high in tannic
acid, which boosts skin's moisture level. Saturate a
black tea bag with very warm water. Press over
clean lips for five minutes.

* LIP PRODUCTS. Look for lip ointments
containing lanolin. Look for all lip products to
contain SPF protection. Another plus are lipsticks
and glosses with alpha hydroxy acids. The benefits
are twofold. The acids will exfoliate dead skin
while they help to retain moisture.
