Hello Cold and Wind! I cannot believe it is only early November and already my lips are chapped and cracking!
If you are experiencing the same thing, then it’s time for some Lip TLC, and fast!!
The first step is exfoliation, to remove any dry, dead skin. You may choose a storebought lip exfoliant, like Bliss Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub.
Or, make a homemade lip scrub. I have done this by mixing a bit of sugar with a pea sized amount of moisturizer and massaging it into my lips using my finger. Finish by gently massaging your lips once more with a clean, wet toothbrush.
Next, pat your lips dry and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Regardless of whether or not you are applying lipstick for the day, start with a rich lip balm to seal in moisture and protect your lips from the elements. 2 of my personal favorites are Smith’s Rosebud Salve and Absolute’s You’re the Balm (these come in so many fun scents!!).
