Isn’t it the worst when your lips are dry? The feeling of chapped flaky puckers can often be quite painful, rendering (effective) balms or salves must-haves during winter months. Fear not, because I’ve been there. I know which products to use and which products to stay away from. Take Chapstick for instance, did you know that it actually locks moisture out? It also contains alcohol and can make your dry lips even drier, causing you to constantly reapply. But I have a secret weapon for that. My defense is Balm Dotcom by Glossier. It’s an all-purpose skin-care balm, equipped with emollient Cupuacu fruit extract and Castor seed oil. In a nutshell, its da bomb and perfect for the winter!
If you are currently dealing with chapped lips, heal them by exfoliating. You can start by creating a mixture of sugar and water. Apply a small amount onto your lips and massage them until they begin to feel soft. What I also like to do is, every morning after I brush my teeth, I brush my lips. It sloughs away dead skin and makes for a soft and supply pout. *Tip: This method is often used to prep lips for lipstick. Do not forget to drink plenty of water. It is extremely important to keep your body properly hydrated. Doing so will help keep your lips looking luscious and fresh. Now chuck your Chapstick forever! You will never look back after you’ve tried these lip moisturizers.
