Hey everyone! Winter is here and its the time of year where our lips are getting dry! Here is what I’ve been doing to keep my lips soft and moisturized, getting them ready to wear lipstick with out those dry cracked lips!
First, I make sure to keep my lips exfoliated, a lip scrub or tooth brush works best for me! Then I make sure to ALWAYS have lip chap on, I have experimented with countless lip chaps and found that Blistex Regular SPF15 (not medicated) works the BEST which you can buy at walmart or any drug store. It isn’t greasy, it lasts the longest and it gives a beautiful moisturized finish. It works well under lipsticks, although if it is a bright or very dark pink/red I would recommend a lip liner to go underneath so it doesn’t run! Another one of my favourite lip products, mostly when my lips aren’t that dry and only when I am getting ready for the day is Creme de Rose smoothing plumping lip balm with SPF10 just because you have to use your fingers to apply it!
For your hands, make sure you are always re-applying lotion after you’ve washed your hands because they mostly just work themselves back to dry after you’ve washed off your layer of moisture! My favourite hand cream that isn’t TOOOOO greasy and smells AH-mazing is the L’OCCITANE in the Lavender scent. I prefer a cream over a simple lotion because my hands get super dry and I find if I just use a lotion, my hands are still just as dry as before so I opt for creams because they give the most moisture for me. On top of keeping your hands all pretty and moisturized, be sure to apply a cuticle oil about once a week to keep those rough edges soft and voila!
Make sure to put lip chap on after you shower and before you go to bed and reapply through out the day and those dry lips should disappear!
