Your  buying  chap stick after chap stick  but still feeling the rough dry  lips???  Welcome to  W I N T E R  the time of year when dry  flaky  lips sneak up on us!

Dry cracked lips = aesthetically not pleasing and  inhibits the ease of  applying lipstick.  So if your interested in scrubbing off those flakes  and keeping your lips nourished keep reading!

I cannot stress enough that licking your lips especially in the dry winter months is going to keep your lips chapped and damaged looking.  I was guilty of  doing  it , we probably all do it unconsciously. The main reason I was doing it was because my lips were dry, so try  these steps in gaining back a moisturized pout!

Exfoliate

Exfoliating your lips will polish off the flakiness , choose a lip scrub  like Fresh Sugar Lip Polish { $22.50 } It exfoliates and keeps lips hydrated . You can use your finger or better yet I like to use a soft bristle tooth brush and gently go in a circular motion. Wash off and repeat until you no longer see those dead skin cells.

Hydrate

Follow  up the exfoliation with an SPF  lip balm .  I love the  Sugar Lip Balm spf15  {$22.50} Lips will look moist and perhaps kissable !! This product contains sugar which apparently is a natural humectant which keeps your lips moist. Glides on so smoothly also contains antioxidants and nourishing oils. Seems like a ton of money for a lip balm but it works better than any lip balm I have used.

At night before I go sleep  I like to use the Laura Mercier Lip Silk {$22} I keep it right at my bedside.   When I wake up in the morning my lips look a bit fuller and  feel nourished. This product is fragrance free and that’s why I love it at night. Feels like a vaseline but works so much better. You don’t need SPF at night so why waste it, save the Fresh Sugar Lip Balm for the day.

Consistency with these products is key..I only use the sugar polish as I see flakiness but the  two  balms I use daily.

Don’t forgot to stop licking those lips..!!

Happy Winter!!
