I’m sure that you use the cold weather as an excuse for not wearing lipsticks. It dries your lips, or doesn’t look good on a chapped lips, but the colors are so beautiful and trendy right now, why you waste the opportunity of looking amazing every single day. The trick is to throw away the universal tinted lip balm and stick to the great colors of the lipsticks you own.
Now I will show you several tricks for maintaining perfectly soft lips and you will have no more excuses for not wearing a lipstick. Take a look:
The key is in the exfoliation treatment. Without this step you can’t do anything to solve the problem of the chapped, dry lip skin. You can buy a lip scrub from any beauty store, you have near to your place, but there are also two really simple homemade recipes that I know:
- Sugar + coconut oil/honey. Mix one tablespoon of sugar and just a pinch of coconut oil or honey, as much as it is needed to make a thick paste out of the sugar.
- Oatmeal + honey. Again, One tablespoon of oatmeal and enough honey to make a paste.
Rub the paste with a finger or a baby toothbrush to the lips. Then rinse with lukewarm water and moisturize immediately with a lip balm or petroleum jelly.
Exfoliate the lips once a week or once in two weeks, but meanwhile do this trick in order to maintain always soft lips:
Apply lip balm or petroleum jelly to the lips and wait a couple of minutes until it softens the skin. Then use a clean mascara brush and exfoliate the lips with it. You can do this trick before the application of the lipstick in order to remove any chance of a dry cuticle to show up and ruin the whole look of the colored lips, which will make you forget about the application of the colorful lipsticks and you will get back to the boring lip balm.
