Sometimes lip care doesn’t even get on the beauty routine, so here are my lip care basics:
Exfoliating helps get rid of dry/ dead skin, which is always a good idea especially if you’re a fan of matte lipsticks. Matte lipsticks can often accentuate any dryness on the lips, so I always make sure to use a lip scrub before I wear anything matte. You can find lip scrubs everywhere these days, Lush has some great ones and I love the one from GlamGlow. You can even DIY your own.
Lips, just like all other skin, need moisture. It’s really important to moisturize your lips after you exfoliate or just any time that they are dry, and especially in drier seasons, like winter, where the dry air and cold can wreak havoc on lips. I keep lip balm with me at all times. I have multiple in my purse, room, bathroom and even office at work. There are tons of choices for lip balm, from the classic Chapstick to the super popular (and cute!) EOS lip balm spheres.
The ways to maintain healthy, beautiful lips are among the most important beauty tips of all! Don’t ignore your lips, give them the love they deserve!
