You must have noticed that your lip balm cannot remove the white layer that gets deposited on your lips especially during winters . And now that the weather is changing and becoming cooler , I thought to share few tips to keep lips free from that white sticky layer and moisturized. I hope these simple remedies for chapped lips will help you to have soft and smooth lips during harsh weather.
TIPS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LIPS
1) Rub your lips gently using a soft baby toothbrush – This works great for removing the white sticky layer from the lips . Rub very gently and apply a lip balm with gentle flavors afterwards . Avoid applying peppermint or cinnamon flavored lip balm .
2) Use a Lip Scrub – Rubbing a lip scrub is like giving your lips a facial. You get more pink , plump and smooth looking lips afterwards . Recently I started using Organic Chocolate Chip Lip Scrub by Skin Cafe , a brand making lip care products with unique flavors and organic ingredients. With an eye catching packaging , it will greet you with tempting fragrance of chocolate cookie. The texture of this scrub is coarse enough to exfoliate lips properly and remove the dead skin , dryness and white layer from the lips . It will not only exfoliate lips but also give a boost of antioxidants with jojoba oil. It contains organic ingredients like Cocoa Beans , Jojoba Oil and cocoa powder . This product does contain fragrance permitted for food , so its 90% organic. (Buy HERE )
Tip – To absorb all the benefits of lip scrubs , let it sit on your lips for a few moments before wiping them clean.
3) Don’t Bite – Some people have this bad habit but please avoid it. It dries lips and makes them peel a lot.
4) Keep them moisturized – We all follow this one ! But always go to bed with a lip balm on your lips. Use an organic lip balm! I reviewed a lip balm earlier which I absolutely love. Read it HERE .
Also , avoiding lipsticks has helped me to reduce the dark appearance of lips.
These were some general things I always follow to keep my lips soft and smooth. DO YOU HAVE ANY TIP? SHARE WITH ME IN COMMENTS.
