What do your lips say about you?

Lips say so much without saying a word!

Dry, soft, peeling, lined, crusty lips all are signs of something and are a clue to what may be going on with your health too. Keeping your lips healthy requires care on your part too.

Dry Lips may be a sign of weather like being in the hot sun or cold and frigid weather. A job that requires you to work outdoors, from blood pressure medicine or other medications. Or you can simply be thirsty.

Beauty FIX: Applying a lip balm or lip treatment conditioner can make a huge difference and will hydrate them and make them LOOK better too. In order for you to see results, you must do this day and night. Stay hydrated drink plenty of water.

Peeling lips can be caused by the outer elements like the weather. Also today’s new formula die-hard lipsticks can cause dry peeling, flaky lips.
*If this happens to you switch to another brand lipstick that works better for the skin on your lips. If this continues, stop using the product that dries out your lips. Unfortunately, you cannot always have it all long lasting lipstick and soft lips.

Beauty FIX: Apply a lip exfoliator on your lips. It usually comes in a lipstick tube form or you can try to make your own.

Lined lips can be a sign of a smoker or sunbather. Sometimes it is caused from your outdoor job or your fave sport.
.

Beauty FIX: Use a lip conditioner with vitamin E, C or shea butter to nourish the skin tissue and lines around the lips.
Also, apply moisturizer and or sunscreen on the skin around your lips. Doing this WILL make your skin look and feel better.
Apply a lip balm or lipstick with sunscreen and it will work wonders if you add them to your beauty regime day and night.

Celebrities and models use an old time apothecary secret I know you will love and it is called Rosebud Salve. This rose scented balm in a tin type jar makes your lips beautifully moist and hydrated. It also is great for chapped cheeks and to soften your cuticles.

Here are a couple of quick and cheap recipes you make at home!

D.I.Y Lip Exfoliating Treat:
2 crushed almonds (unsalted)
1 tablespoon of plain dry oatmeal
1/3 to ¼ cup of fresh water

Mix all of the above and make a creamy paste out of it.

Rinse well with a lukewarm washcloth

Let your lips air dry and apply your favorite lip balm.

My recipe for a D.I.Y. Lip Scrub

1 soup spoon of brown sugar
1/3 sunflower or almond oil

Mix the two together with a small bowl or mini glass dish.

Apply on clean lips with a baby’s toothbrush.
Rub back and forth gently!
Leave this on for at least five or ten minutes for it to do its magic.
Apply your favorite lip conditioner afterwards.
