When the air gets colder and drier, your lips get flaky and chapped too.
When you bite them, lick them, and pick on them, your dried lips get even worse.
When you wear lip colors, tints, liquid lipsticks, matte lipsticks, the skin on your lips becomes more chapped, flakier, drier and sometimes, even feels painful.
If your lips feel extremely dry and flaky, we have just what you need to transform your lips overnight. In this blog post, we will share the most effective ways to use your lip scrub, lip masks, and lip balms so you can heal and hydrate your lips overnight.
First things first…
Compared to the skin on your face, the skin on your lips lacks oil glands. This makes your lips prone to getting drier in extreme weather.
And, that is why your lips need extra TLC.
If you have been relying on your toothbrush for lip exfoliation and chapstick/lip balm for lip hydration—it is time to change your lip care routine.
