Lips, like skin and hair, sometimes need a bit of TLC. Siobhan Bentley shares her tips for making your pout soft and smooth.

It's easy to forget about our lips, and unfortunately, swiping on the occasional pat of Vaseline is not enough to keep them soft and nourished. A little love and attention will be well worth it when you pop on your favorite lipstick, and your pucker is left smooth and ready for action!

Lips, like all other skin, need to be exfoliated. When they require that extra TLC, I rely on Lush Bubble Gum Lip Scrub ($9). Rub this into lips, and the blend of sugar and castor oil will leave them enticingly silky.

For adding extra moisture, Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant ($19.50) is my go-to product. A favorite of beauty editors and makeup artists, it instantly smooths the most chapped pout.

If you're looking to plump, or want to add some extra drama to your everyday lipstick, dab on Soap and Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme-Pump Collagen Lip Shine ($22). This gloss makes lips appear infinitely larger.

Use these three products alongside a daily lip balm, like Korres Lip Butter ($12), to ensure your pucker's always in tip-top condition.
