We all have had lips that were dry, cracked and just looked a hot mess, You lick them, thinking it may help, but in all reality... it just made them worse.
Having soft kissable lips is so important...Especially if you are a bride! You definitely don't want your spouse to be to kiss you on your wedding day and they feel LIZARD LIPS(LMAO). All jokes aside, having soft and supple lips is not only comfortable for you, but it's inviting to the one you are kissing. So how do you create soft supple lips?

My favorite way to get dead skin off my lips is not to pick it off, but to use a gentle exfoliation. My favorite product to use is Fresh Sugar Lip Polish Exfoliator. This lip scrub works magic to hydrate and buff away all the dead skin cells on your lips. Formulated with Brown Sugar, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil your lips will be silky smooth.
If you have dry lips more often than others, chances are that you could be dehydrated. Not only will your lips suffer, but so will your skin. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water each day, will keep your your body and LIPS hydrated. Water is a great way to keep your body healthy! Also, make sure your not licking your lips...Which can dry out your lips as well. I know easier said than done. In the words of the Water Boy "that's some good H2O!"
Your lips are constantly being exposed to the sun, so using a lip balm with SPF15 or above will protect your lips and will lock in moisture. Best time to use lip balm is when you first wakeup, after you wash your face and before you go bed. My favorite lip balm is Caudalie Grape Water Lip Balm. The lip conditioner is enriched with nourishing grape seed oil and antioxidant grape seed. It moisturizes and protects. I love this balm so much, that I use it on all of my brides. Another contender is Burt Bee's lip balm, its made out of natural beeswax and is thick and nourishing. Which is perfect if your lips are extremely dry.
If your lips are so dry to the point that they feel beyond repair. Then a Lip Mask may be what you might want to consider using. My favorite Lip mask that I use on myself and clients is LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask this lip mask has Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C. Which is perfect if you have fine lines and wrinkles. Every time I use this magic in a jar I feel like my lips are ready for some action (don't judge me)
No Matter what products you decide to go with make sure you drink plenty of water. You use a good lip scrub and always and I mean ALWAYS use lip balm.
