The Perfect Pout: How To Get Kissably Smooth Lips

Many women experience dry lips during the cold winter months, and this problem only gets worse during pregnancy! Fortunately, it’s easier than you think to have luscious, kissably smooth lips. We’ve got some great tips to help you hold onto that perfect pout during your nine months and after.

Moisturize At least Twice A day: Apply your favorite lip balm first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed at night. Our tip? Throw an extra lip balm in your purse or keep it at work to keep your lips smooth throughout the day.

Pick The Right Lip Balm: Always use an all-natural lip balm with ingredients such as vitamin E, coconut oil, and cupuaçu butter to seal in moisture and nourish your skin. We can’t get enough of the Nine Naturals’ Simply Natural Lip Balm – it has all 3 of the powerhouse ingredients and  the long lasting formula hydrates all day long!

Stop Licking Your Lips: It may seem counter-intuitive, but saliva actually dry out your lips so fight the urge to lick them in general and especially if your lips are already dry.

Use Lip Balm As A Lipstick Base: This creates a protective moisture seal beneath your makeup, not to mention it makes lipstick easier to apply.

Drink Plenty Of Water: Staying hydrated is a great way to keep your lips moist, so drink up!

Exfoliate Your Lips: Exfoliation removes dead cells from your lips and leaves them visibly smoother. DIY your own lip scrub by mixing 1 tablespoon of honey with enough sugar until you get a body-scrub-like texture. Scrub it across your lips with a toothbrush for 1 minute and voila! Instantly smoother lips.

Avoid Eating Salty Foods: Salt is known to draw moisture out of things so avoid foods high in sodium, such as chips.
