How to maintain moist lips 💋

1) Drink plenty of water

One of the best ways to defend against dry, damaged lips is to make sure you’re hydrated from the inside out.

Aim to get at least 3-4 liters (depending on your weight and activities) a day. As an added bonus, loading up on water will also make your lips appear more full.

Carry a water bottle or thermos with you so you’ll have something to sip on all day long.

Proper hydration isn’t just good for your lips—it makes you healthier in almost every conceivable way.

Decaffeinated tea, juice, and other beverages can also help you meet your daily hydration goals. Steer clear of caffeinated beverages and drinks that are high in sodium because these will dry out your lips.

Use cucumber to restore vital moisture. Cut a ripe cucumber into thin slices and place one over each lip while you’re lying down, or use them to dab your lips. It will only take a few minutes for your lips to absorb the hydrating, nutrient-infused juices, but their effects will last all day.

Cucumber treatments can make a fast and effective addition to your nightly skincare routine.

Topical application of the fruit can also help ease the discomfort of chapped or sunburned lips



Rub on some all-natural almond oil, coconut oil, or shea butter. Scoop up a small amount of oil on your fingertip and smear it directly onto your lips. Fatty oils make great natural conditioners, as they moisten, soften, and give lips a healthy glisten.

For best results, apply a little oil 2-3 times a day.

Almond oil is hypoallergenic, which means it’s safe to use from head to toe on all skin types.

The high amounts of vitamins A and E found in organic oils have age-fighting properties that may actually make your lips look younger with continued use.

To take advantage of higher concentrations, you could even try using pure vitamin E oil.

Personally, I use a combination of shea butter and olive oil. If you take a close look at my lips, you will be so jealous because I have the best lips in the world 💋💋💋😜😜😜


If you want to use a lip balm or lip gloss or wet lips, make sure that it is strictly natural and Hydrating

A quality hydrating balm will also leave your lips feeling softer, smoother, and less sensitive to wind and cold.

Skip lip treatments containing camphor or menthol or any chemical, will only aggravate dry skin even more and could sting your lips if they are irritated


As a bonus presentation, I will talk about some things we need to avoid for us to maintain moist lips

Stop licking your lips. Wetting your lips with the tip of your tongue may seem to make a difference in the short term, but it’s really doing more harm than good.

Over time, the digestive enzymes found in your saliva will eat through the protective barrier on sensitive lip skin

Breathe through your nose. If you’re not already, start inhaling and exhaling through your nose rather than your mouth.

The movement of all that air around your lips can dry them out in a hurry. Keeping your mouth shut is also less likely to mess up your lipstick than opening and closing it constantly.

If you have no choice but to huff and puff while exercising, open your mouth a little wider so that you’re not blowing the air over your pursed lips.

Mouth breathing is a good behavior to curb, as it comes with a host of other negative consequences, including cottonmouth, teeth grinding, and drool-drenched pillows. Yuck!

Chronic dry lips could be caused by an allergic reaction to chemicals in toothpastes, chewing gums etc

That will be all on how to maintain moist lips.

I hope we have learned a thing or two from today's presentation

If you have any question or comments, you may present it now
