2. A mixture of lemon, castor oil and Glycerin

Mix the three ingredients in a bowl and thoroughly stir to mix. Apply the paste formed on the lips before bed time using your finger or a toothbrush. Lemon possess a healing property that will treat any chapped lips. Oil helps in protecting the lips by forming a barrier. Glycerin is added since it is a moisturizer.

3. A mixture of rose petals and fresh raw milk

Soak some rose petals in a bowl containing raw milk. After a few minutes, stir the mixture to form a paste. Apply the paste on your lips and take 3 to 5 minutes before washing with warm water. Apply some lip balm or moisturizer for soft lustrous color lips.

4. Lip exercise

Conducting lip exercises is one way on how to get soft lips that are plump. Regular exercises for at least three times a week can give you great lip in a period of less than two months. Some of such lip exercises include; whistle, smiling, kissing and rotating your lips from side to side

5. Overnight lip care

The best time to clean your lips is before going to bed, then your lips will have enough time to heal and when you wake up in the morning your lips will be ready for you to apply your lip balm or lip stick
All you need is baking soda, water and toothbrush.

After stirring small amount of water and baking soda in a cup, use toothbrush to apply and scrub mixture on lips in circular motions. Finalize by applying moisturizing lip balm, Vaseline or oil (coconut oil or olive oil)  Baking soda is a natural abrasive and will make you get baby soft lips overnight

Other Tips for beautiful lips

Drink enough water:
Drinking enough water (the equivalent of at least 9 cups of fluids daily) will keep the body, skin and lips hydrated. Think of your lips as a sponge. "When exposed to moisture, they absorb water and plump up. When dehydrated, they dry out and shrink,"

Lick, the smacking habit: Licking your lips damages the protective barrier, which can dry out the lips, (Saliva contains digestive enzymes that can break down this barrier.) Instead, regularly apply lip balm
Regularly apply lip balm: Look for lip moisturizer balms with hydrating ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, vitamin E and almond, jojoba or coconut oils. Good old petroleum jelly (Vaseline) works well too.

Exfoliate when necessary: Lip exfoliators (products that contain fruit-acid-based alpha or beta hydroxyl acids) slough off dead skin, much like the ones you'd use on your face, but if you have sensitive skin or your lips are severely chapped or cracked, use these products cautiously (no more than once weekly) as they do contain acids that can irritate skin.

Protect: Lips are susceptible to sunburn since they lack melanin, the pigment that helps shield skin from the sun, avoid exposing lips to excess sun, apply sun-protective products on face daily.
Don’t make matte forever: Matte lipsticks can be extremely drying (which helps these lipsticks stay put for so long). That's why you should use them sparingly when your lips are extremely chapped. Instead, alternate use of them with hydrating lipsticks (as indicated by ingredients like vitamin E and/or glycerin) or add a layer of moisturizing lip balm underneath.
