Winter is finally starting to slowly creep upon us, which means our skin is beginning to need a bit more of protection from the elements. With the nipping cold, dry air, the skin on our body is just begging for more moisture. With some simple tips and tricks, you can kiss dry, flaky winter skin goodbye. (more…)
A key trick to getting your lips to look and feel their best is to exfoliate them. Just like your skin, lips regenerate and need help shedding those dead skin cells, and gently exfoliating them can prevent them from chapping and ensure that your lip balm penetrates them to leave them soft and kissable. Now, before you go running out to buy lip exfoliators, rest assured that you can make your own with things you already have in your kitchen for a fraction of the price. With two simple ingredients, you’ll have the best exfoliator for the best lips.
That’s it! This is a great thing to do in the winter months when your lips are in extra need of moisture as this keeps the chapping away.
TIP: When your lips are exfoliated, your lipstick applies much smoother and actually lasts much longer!
