Lip Care: How to Get Perfect Lips for Summer

If your lips are feeling a bit dry after months of cooler weather, here’s how to get them in perfect shape for all your summer shenanigans!

Dehydration is a common cause of dry lips, especially in summer when we sweat a lot, so make sure to keep a bottle of water with you at all times! We love putting refreshing slices of fruit and herbs in our water to give it a burst of flavor (and of course, to have a fruity snack at hand if we’re feeling peckish!).

Spring Cleaning
When was the last time you exfoliated your lips? If it was last summer, it’s time to do a little spring cleaning! Your lips have thinner skin than the rest of your body, and if dead skin builds up it can make your lips drier, because it’s harder for your lips to retain moisture. A luscious sugar scrub will help remove dead skin and get your lips soft and smooth in time for summer (flirts!).

Give Them Some Love
For some reason, our lips always seem to get dry. It doesn’t matter if it’s hot, cold or if we down water like we’ve been lost in the Sahara, they still get dry if we don’t baby them. Oh, the drama! To keep those high maintenance lips in check, gear up with a nourishing lip balm or three in your purse to ensure soft, kissable lips at all times.

Get the Perfect Pout
Whether you’re traveling to envy-inducing destinations or relaxing at home, summer is the perfect time to capture a new profile pic. Get your smize on and ensure a profile-worthy pout with a plumping lip balm or gloss to make them look big and pillowy. What more could a girl want?! Dab some on your lips whenever they need a boost.

Add a Pop of Colour
Summer calls for more colour! Lipstick naturally enhances the shape of your lips and can help give an illusion of fullness. Whether you go for a baby pink or ruby red it always makes your lips look irresistible!
