Kissable lips are a must, and although getting soft lips become particularly important when you’re looking forward to a kissing episode with your man, nice lips, obtained through regular lip care a few makeup tricks, are always great to have no matter what.
How To Get Kissable Lips At Any Given Day
Stop getting those dry, peeling lip skin by exfoliating your lips regularly.
Prepare a sugar and honey scrub (always get these freshly prepared from your kitchen).
Simply mix. Wash your lips. Apply the scrub on your lips in gentle, circular massaging motion.
If you can get hold of virgin coconut oil, use it in place of honey for a deeper moisturized feel.
Also, enhance the effect of exfoliation by using a soft-bristled toothbrush to apply the scrub and massage in place of your bare fingers.
Keep Your Lips Moisturized.
Coconut oil or any essential oil, particularly lavender oil and rosewater oil, are great additions to your daily pout care.
Apply these at night to avoid oily look on your pout.
During the day, a lip balm which at least carries an SPF 15 protection should work fine.
Keep your lip balm in your bag and keep reapplying throughout the day whenever your lips feel dry and thick.
If your lip balm leaves ingredients floating on your lips, that’s when you know you probably need another brand.
Dry lips are also a sign that you may be dehydrated.
Keep your mouth and your lips from drying out by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.
Water is still best but fresh, unsweetened fruit and veggie shakes can help replenish your system’s water levels too — and, keep your lips moisturized, of course!
Maintain Clean Teeth & Mouth.
Keep flora and fauna in your mouth well-balanced by brushing your teeth at least three times daily.
Carry a mouthwash around so you can always gargle whenever your mouth starts to feel and taste funny. When your mouth is unclean, your lips dry out too.

FYI, the skin on your lips do not contain oil glands unlike most parts of your skin.

Biting, in turn, will only wound your skin, and done repeatedly, ends up thickening the skin on your lips.
