1. Stop licking your lips
I’m sure we’re all guilty of licking our lips during desperate times in an attempt to provide some quick moisture to our lips, or simply out of habit. This action may seem inconsequential but if you’ve been relying on this method to plump those lips, you need to stop right now. Licking your lips actually dries them out even more because our saliva contains digestive enzymes that can irritate the lips’ skin and leave them vulnerable to environmental exposure. Use a dedicated lip balm to keep your lips hydrated at all times.
