    Soft, full lips make your face look healthy and beautiful. But how do you get your lips to look amazing? Start by regularly exfoliating and conditioning your lips to help them look their best. Next, add color and shine to make your lips appear pretty and bright. Finally, keep your lips looking great by staying hydrated, using sunscreen and having healthy long-term habits.

    Conditioning Your Lips

      Use a lip scrub to exfoliate your lips. The skin on your lips is delicate, and it easily dries and begins to flake. If you have dry, ©râcked lips, you need to condition your lips instead of trying to cover them up. A light lip scrub can do the trick in a matter of minutes. There's no need to buy a special scrub; just mix one up at home. Here's what to do: Please or Register to view links
      • Mix a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of honey.
      • Wet your lips with warm water.
      • Rub the scrub over your lips in a circular motion.
      • Rinse your lips, and repeat if necessary.

      Try a soft-bristled toothbrush. If your lips are too dry to be corrected with a scrub, try using a toothbrush to do the job. Wet your lips and rub a clean toothbrush over them using a gentle circular motion. Rinse your lips and repeat if you still see skin flakes there.
      • Make sure you use a soft-bristled brush, and not one with stiff bristles. You don't want to cut or scrape the skin on your lips, since irritating them will just make the problem worse.
      • If your lips are ©râcked, you may need to repeat the process over the course of several days. After exfoliating your lips, moisturize them and wait until the next day to exfoliate again. Repeat until your lips are in tip-top condition.

      Nourish your lips with a homemade serum. A lip serum is similar to a face mask, but for your lips. It's a rich, nourishing mixture that deeply moisturizes and brightens your lips, with results lasting several days. After exfoliating your lips, apply a serum to bring out the best in your skin.
      • Mix 1 teaspoon honey or aloe with 1 teaspoon olive or coconut oil.
      • Rub the mixture into your lips.
      • Let the serum sit and absorb into your lips for ten minutes.
      • Rinse away the excess serum with warm water.

      Use a natural lip plumper. If you long for bigger lips, there are ways to help your lips look their plumpest without using injections or expensive products. The key is to increase circulation in your lips by apply a substance that draws blood to the area. Mix up a natural lip plumper and apply it to your lips any time you want to give them a boost. Here are a few household supplies you can use:
      • A mixture of 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper and 1/2 teaspoon olive or coconut oil
      • A mixture of 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon olive or coconut oil
      • A mixture of 5 drops peppermint extract and 1/2 teaspoon olive or coconut oil
      • Or use this quick solution: rub a piece of freshly cut ginger or a cut jalapeno pepper over your lips

      Moisturize your lips every day. Your lips are exposed to all kinds of substances that can dry them out on a daily basis. Hot and cold temperatures, food and beverages you consume, wind, sun, and air pollution all have an effect on the state of your lips. Protect them every day by using a good moisturizing lip balm to provide a thin barrier between your lips and the rest of the world.
      • Look for a balm made with natural substances. Key ingredients that moisturize your lips include coconut oil or butter, shea butter, and vitamin E oil.
      • To make your own healthy balm, simply melt together 2 tablespoons coconut oil and 1 tablespoon beeswax. You can scent the mixture with five drops of your favorite essential oil. Pour it into a clean lip balm jar and allow it to cool before using.
