Soft, healthy, pink lips resemble rose petals and give your face that luscious look. Lips are the most sensitive part of our body – they indicate ill-health when one is not well by drying, blackening and chapping. Look after your overall health and nurture your lips on a daily basis.


Here is how to take care of your lips:


Protect your lips from the changing weather: You must apply a good vitamin-E fortified lip balm or Vaseline at least thrice a day to keep your lips moisturized.


Eat plenty of fruits and green vegetables: This will provide your lips with all the vitamins it needs.


Drink sufficient water: This will keep your skin supple.


Do not lick and chew on your lips: This may be tempting and may moisturize your lips for some time, but they will soon begin to dry. 


Do not smoke: Avoid smoking as it leads to blackening and drying of lips.

Use these home remedies for chapped lips: Apply honey mixed with lemon on your lips at bedtime. You can apply almond oil or milk cream on your lips at bedtime too.


Use only herbal lipsticks from expensive brands: Check for ingredients like vitamin E oil in lipsticks. This will keep your lips soft and supple. Remove your lipstick completely at night with soft cotton dipped in cleansing milk and apply Vaseline on your lips before you sleep.


Lip augmentation surgery: This is for critically damaged lips, but is increasingly gaining popularity. It helps disfigured lips appear attractive. 


Cosmetic lip tattooing and piercing: If you love tattoos and piercing, you can go ahead and get adventurous. Such beautification of the lips have been practiced since ancient times in Africa and in Mediterranean countries.
