Lip Care During Winter

Hi beauties:)

How you all doing? How’s winter survival going? Well it’s basically that time of the year when the sun doesn’t shine much, we all cold and miserable and our skin suffers the most specially on extreme cold conditions! They same with our pouting tool, it tends to get drier, chapped and sore without proper or rather extra care during this time!!
What we want is smooth looking lips, well hydrated and soft for lipstick application right? ( yes of course) than here’s what we can do to achieve just that.

1. EXFOLIATE

Use a good gentle lip scrub to buff away excess dry skin away, leaving exposed softer lips! You can DIY a lip scrub or buy ready made at the shop, exfoliate at a minimum of once a week, you don’t wanna over exfoliate:)

Alternatively you can do your own scrub using ingredients available from your kitchen cupboards and absolutely natural following this two simple/easy recipes:
Method 1:
Oil and Honey Scrub
1 teaspoon olive oil (or jojoba oil)
1 tablespoon white or brown sugar (finely or coarsely grated)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon petroleum jelly (optional)
Scented oil or spices (optional)

Method 2:
Honey and Sugar Scrub
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon white or brown sugar
Some warm water

2. MOISTURISE WITH A GOOD LIP CONDITIONER
After scrubbing it’s important to keep lips hydrated and moisturised at all times! What I love to do is MOISTURISE before bedtime for maximum hydration and every other hour throughout the day! This lip balms promise smooth looking lips and chap free:
