Lips Are Magic! They are your Personal Secret Weapon!
Let’s talk lips.
Lips are one of your secret weapons. Why? Because they are magic! Lips are the most sensitive organ on your body. Extremely flexible. And, downright beautiful!
Have you ever noticed that when you’re talking to someone your eyes keep returning to their lips? It’s freaky, isn’t it? Yet, somehow, we’re drawn to them when people talk. Like magnets. Yeah sure, we watch eyes too, but mostly our eyes are glued to the lips. It’s one of those human rules – watch the lips.
Okay, now that you know this, what are you going to do about it? That was a trick question and I bet you jumped straight to lipstick. But if you want utterly kissable lips, there’s something you should always do first: that’s right – exfoliate! Bingo!!!
Removing the dead and chapped skin off your lips will increase circulation and allow fresh skin to surface. This lets your lips be as plump and luscious as possible. You’ll find it even helps prevents them from getting chapped and dry. You know what I mean: little bits of flaky skin clinging to the edges? No, not on you, baby!
Okay, so how do you exfoliate? Well my simple, never fail technique goes like this: mix a little bit of sugar with a little bit of coconut oil and make a paste. Scrub your lips with this. Everyday!
TIP: Exfoliate your lips when you brush your teeth – day or night doesn’t matter, but do it daily. Then, and only then, can you dab on a bit of lipgloss or lipstick. And since you’ll be doing this everyday, you might as well make a small jar of it so you can keep it ready to use in the bathroom right next to your toothpaste.
If you really want eye-catching lips, go with a bit of color: rosy pink, bright poppy, ruby red!
Don’t leave the house with naked lips. That’s drab and Frumpy,…. We’re Frump-Fighters, ladies – we don’t want Frumpy anything, especially not our gorgeous, luscious lips.
