Everyone knows that the first step to a perfect pout is exfoliation. But what comes after that? Lip hydration, of course! Just like the rest of your skin, your lips need to be properly hydrated in order to look and feel their best. Here are a few of our favourite tips for keeping your lips hydrated and looking gorgeous.

1. Drink plenty of water. This one is a no-brainer. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is essential for keeping your whole body, including your lips, hydrated. dehydrated lips can lead to wrinkles and fine lines, so make sure to drink up!

2. Apply lip balm regularly. Applying lip balm regularly is key to keeping your lips moisturized and hydrated. We recommend applying lip balm at least once a day, but if you're prone to dry lips, you may need to apply it more often. Choose a lip balm or Chapstick with SPF for an added boost of protection from the sun's harmful rays.

3. Use a humidifier at night. Dry indoor air can wreak havoc on your skin, including your lips. combat dry indoor air by using a humidifier in your bedroom at night while you sleep. This will help add moisture back into the air and keep your skin—and lips—hydrated all night long.

4. Avoid licking your lips . When you lick your lips, it might feel like you're adding moisture, but all you're really doing is drying them out even more. Avoid licking your lips and instead reach for a lip balm when they start to feel dry.

5. Get regular professional treatments . Just like the rest of your skin, your lips need some extra TLC from time to time in order to look and feel their best . Book an appointment with a licensed aesthetician for a professional lip treatment like microdermabrasion or chemical peels every few months to help slough off dead skin cells and improve overall lip health .

6 . Exfoliate weekly . Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin , which can help improve the appearance of dry , chapped lips . Use a sugar scrub or Ryize Lip Scrub 2-3 times a week as part of your regular beauty routine .
