With the arrival of winter, our lips face the heat. Chapped, dry, flaky, the cold is a villain that should be put in its place. To fight the wintery blues, check out these simple tricks.
The first trick is a little cliched, but important nevertheless. Always keep a nourishing lip balm in your bag. Ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba oil and Vitamin E nourish the lips and keep them in tip top condition. In case you're an outdoorsy person, keep a lip balm with sunscreen close at hand.
To keep the dryness at bay, follow this second trick. Drive away those annoying cracks by taking sufficient Vitamin B2 in your diet. Mushrooms, Spinach, Yogourt, all these contain plenty of it. Omega 3 fatty acids from fish are also a great diet addition to prevent the appearance of cracks.
Third trick is a little more straightforward. Do not, at any cost, lick your lips constantly. It does more harm than good. If you treasure your rosy lips, then keep them moisturized with tinted lip balms that add a splash of color. From red to gentle coral, the variety is a charm.
If your lips are adamantly staying dry, then try this. Slowly exfoliate them using mixture of brown sugar and olive oil. Once the application sits, rub it in with your fingertips in a circular motion. You can then rinse with water and apply the balm. Armed with these tricks, kiss lip troubles goodbye.
