Admittedly, my lips are definitely my favorite feature. I love lipstick and I love bold colors. BUT - there is nothing worse than cracking lips underneath a matte lip. So here are some ways to defeat the dry lips and get those kissable lips!
EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE!!!!
The main key to immediately soft lips is too exfoliate. I have found myself also purchasing a few high priced lip scrubs, but nothing has ever matched the holy grail, Eco Lips Lipscrub. I purchased my first jar years ago and I have been hooked ever since.
To use: Apply to damp lips and rub in a circular motion. Wipe off with warm towel and apply lip balm.
Speaking of Lip Balm - if you're anything like me, you have more lip balms than you can count because you always end up losing one. I have one for the car, my purse, my laptop bag, my bathroom, AND my vanity. My go to lip balm is Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soothe and Rosemary Mint Lip Protector by @indigenous_roots.
If your lips need a little pick me up, honey is an excellent moisturizer. It is a humectant which locks moisture into your lips. Exfoliate as normal and then do a honey lip mask for 3 minutes. Apply Lip Balm as usual.
Lastly, here is a DIY Lip Scrub for you!
Here's to kissable lips all 2019!
Remember to drink your water and mind your business.
