NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. -- Angelina Jolie has one of the sexiest pouts in the world. She, along with Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, can drive men wild with just the pucker of their lips.
Now, get ready for your lips to take center stage – Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you’ve got a special someone in your life, count on your lips getting a major workout on Cupid’s holiday.
“Soft, deliciously flavored and color-rich,” is how Susanne Langmuir, founder of the lip-line, BITE Beauty, describes the ideal Valentine’s Day pout. Plus, to keep lips young and moisturized, look for lip products that are made from natural and food grade ingredients. “BITE is beauty that is healthy enough to eat. Each BITE lipstick contains the red wine antioxidant Resveratrol, the equivalent to drinking 5 glasses of red wine! This powerful antioxidant assists in the fight against free radicals, and works to restore and maintain youthful looking lips,” adds Susanne.
BITE Beauty shares with Healthy Hollywood a few tips to fabulous lips on Valentine’s Day (and everyday).
1. SMOOTH lips with a gentle exfoliant, such as BITE Whipped Cherry Fruit Scrub. Or, use a toothbrush and lightly rub over lips to remove dry, dead skin. Be sure to apply lip balm after brushing.
2. SOOTHE lips with conditioning treatment like BITE Acai Superfruit Butter. A rich cream, like shea butter, is an ideal nighttime treatment and for when you first wake up in the morning. Be sure to moisturize lips before you apply color to avoid flakey, uneven application.
3. PROTECT your pucker because lips wrinkle too! Try BITE SPF 15 Sheer Balm – or look for lip products with a SPF. Lips need the same sun protection as the rest of your skin!
