We all know the pain of cracked, dry lips, so today I am here to suggest some tips to help!
Sometimes applying loads and loads of chapstick is not the answer to dry, chapped lips.
Just like our skin our lips need exfoliation.Therefore, in order for our lip moisturizers to do their job, they need a fresh exfoliated surface to work with. There are many ways to exfoliate your lips, you can: Use a toothbrush to scrub your lips, or a towel. You can even use scotch tape (place tape on lips and slowly peel off), or you can use a lip scrub, which you can find at most places, or you can make your own using sugar and oils.
After you have exfoliated, follow up with your favorite lip moisturizer.
My current favorite is Lip Service by LUSH.
So this winter make sure you don’t forget to exfoliate your lips!

No one enjoys having cracked, dry lips so I’ll share with you my secret on how I keep my lips moisturized and plump!
I keep the largest sized tub of vaseline by my bedside and apply a large amount every night before bed.
It may seem kind of gross to apply so much vaseline to your lips, but as the night wears on the vaseline soaks in and you want to make sure that when you wake up there is still a light layer of vaseline on your lips. So be very generous with how much vaseline you use, it’s hard to use too much!
Then in the morning you can either take a toothbrush or just a rag and scrub or wipe your lips. I usually just use a towel/rag and scrub the excess vaseline off. And afterwards you should see a big difference!
Don’t forget to apply a chapstick or a small amount of vaseline on after you have scrubbed it all off.
If your lips are very dry it make take a couple days before they are looking and feeling fresh again.

I have been on the search for a nude pink lipstick perfect for everyday wear. And I found it!
I picked up two promising looking shades from the Kate collection, Matte lasting finish by Rimmel, at Target the other day.
The thing I love about these lipsticks is the moisturizing effect! They glide on so smoothly, like chapstick and the color pay off is beautiful! For a matte lipstick they sure do feel like a lip balm!
