Whom of you are tired of having dry lips? I sure am. For as long as I can remember I always end up with dry lips and occasionally having good supple lips naturally during summer. So most often than not I have dry flaky lips unless I keep moisturizing with chapstick or lip balm —until I discovered a better way to keep dry lips off. At least until I forget to do my little trick and there goes that icky and ugly un-kissable lips. Yes, I said it! I have once forgotten about my lips and gave my boyf a smack on the lips and guess what? Instead of uttering sweet nothings I ended up being embarrassed. Why? He just blurted out “Love, your lips are dry its hurting my lips” =.= You can already imagine how that feels.
Aside from that, there’s nothing more annoying than lipstick that looks flaky or blotchy because of uneven dry skin in the lips and sometimes chapstick can’t get the job done or at least asap. So what’s my secret? The trick is to get rid of all the dry flaky skin before you moisturize.
Just mix together a packet of sugar in the raw [or brown sugar], 1/4 tsp of lip balm [or petroleum jelly like vaseline], and a few drops of olive oil [or baby oil], and rub them vigorously on your lips for about 60 seconds. Scrub off the dead skin cell using a toothbrush or disposable mascara wand and then wash it all off and finish it with a plain lip balm or petroleum jelly. Do this at least two to three times a week and you will see a huge improvement, winter or summer!
Now, isn’t that quick and easy? You won’t believe what a difference it makes! I tried it and I love the results… now I just need to remember to do it religiously.
Exfoliating is very important because it gets rid of all of the dead skin off your lips. Why is it essential to moisturize after exfoliating? That’s because it helps retain the moisture and suppleness of the lips. Follow this tip and you’ll be on your way to a nice kissable and well pampered puckers! Til next, xox.
