New Delhi: A kiss explains it all. Kiss is above all words and compliments.

Give your loved one a beautiful compliment with a kind and a velvety kiss and make them feel the warmth and affection of your love. How to touch the soul softly and gently on this kiss day, tells Ms Bharti Taneja a renowned cosmetologist, aesthetician and founder director of ALPS Beauty Clinic.

Keep your breath fresh. Brush your teeth properly and use good mouth freshener after that. Don’t eat food that stinks in your mouth later. Chew some sugar free chewing gums to avoid bad breath.

Scrub the lips as it will make them softer. Take a soft brush and put some coconut oil and sugar on it and rub gently on your lips. It will remove the dead skin from the lips leaving it more soft and pink.

Message your lips before going to sleep. Take almond oil to message your lips regularly. You can even put some lemon juice with oil as it will work as a balm.

To cure chapped lips try an ancient remedy. Apply some pure ghee or mustard oil in your belly button (Navel) at night before going to sleep.

Moisturize your lips by applying a lip balm or a petroleum jelly. These things are handy so you can keep those with you always.

Don’t lick your lips as it makes them drier.

Drink lots of water and juices to keep your lips healthy and vibrant.

Do regular exercises to make your lips fuller and healthy. Whistling, smiling and moving lips side to side are some of them.
