Valentine’s Day is ahead of us, and before we know it, we’ll be taking our loved ones out on a special date to create unforgettable memories. So, if you’re someone who’s looking to create a night to remember, it’s time that you start preparing. You’ll want to make reservations, order flowers and prepare yourself for a date you won’t want to end. And one of the most obvious ways to communicate love on Valentine’s Day is with the seal of a kiss. If you’re looking to make kissing a bit more exciting and satisfying, you may want to think about preparing your lips for February 14th.
Here are the top ways our dentists recommend you plump up your peckers this Valentine’s Day.
Choose the perfect product.
It’s important that you check the labels before putting a product on your lips. To protect your lips, be sure that you buy a lip balm that has SPF 30 or higher. Also, be sure to avoid fragrance and parabens, even though they’re tempting. Dermatologists recommend you stay away from these because the super-aromatic ingredients can actually dry out your lips. Instead, look for a lip balm that has sorbitol, lactic acid, mineral oil, glycerin and/or aloe in it. These ingredients are what help your lips hold onto moisture.
Get rid of flakes.
If you aren’t an individual who loves to exfoliate your body, you probably don’t exfoliate your face. Now is the time to start! Exfoliating your lips is a great way to keep your epidermal cells stimulated and creating new collagen. This can keep you lips plump, healthy and moist!
