As the seasons change the weather gets colder and with it, chapped lips. No more soft supple summer lips, where moisture in the air is abundant and the need for lip balm is almost non-existent. No, Winter is approaching and with it comes a dry chill that puts the chap in chapstick. If you want desirable (and aesthetically pleasing) lips, here are some tips to add to your beauty regime that are sure to keep your kisser soft!
EXFOLIATE: [1-2x per week]
When your lips are dry its important to remove those dry patches through exfoliation. My pick for best method of exfoliation has always been a natural sugar scrub. With ingredients like sugar and natural oils which help heal dry, cracked skin, you are sure to have smooth lips in no time!
Personal Pick: Lush Lip Scrubs
TREAT: [As often as needed]
A treatment lip balm has to be the most helpful on those days where you feel like your lips could bleed from how cracked they have become. A medicated lip balm treatment is great for this as it really helps heal your lips, and provides anti aging ingredients to prevent fine lines in the future. They may not taste the best, smell the best, or be the prettiest makeup item in your collection, but they work!
Personal Pick: Blistex Medicated Lip Ointment
Once your lips are looking soft and smooth its easy to maintain them. My favorite way to keep the lips moisturized, soft, and kissable is by applying a tinted lip butter daily. Tinted lip butters provide a sheer wash of color that give your lips that extra pick me up they needed. The shine helps moisturize the lips and make them look healthier and fuller.
Personal Picks: Revlon Lip Butters, Korres Lip Butters
