It’s that time of year again when the weather starts to play havoc on your lips. They dry up, crack and split, leaving them sore and not so pleasing to the eye. Don’t worry though, there’s a quick and easy solution to having super soft lips. In two simple steps your lips will be back to normal and feeling smoother than ever.
Step 1 – Use a lip exfoliator. The Lip Scrub by Sarah Happ comes in some seriously tasty flavours (Crème Brulee, Vanilla Bean, Clementine) – the sugar gently brushes all the dead skin away, leaving a smooth finish. You can get the Lip Scrub for £19.00 at BeautyBay. For a much cheaper option, add a small amount of water to some caster sugar.
Step 2 – Get yourself a lip balm. Carry this with you everywhere you go, if you feel your lips start to dry up throughout the day just smother the balm on for instant hydration. Vaseline lip therapy tins work wonders on your lips, the light formula isn’t sticky and the more hydration you need the more layers you can add without making your lips feel cloggy. Vaseline is available at Boots for £2.18.
Malin+Goetz lip moisturiser is a thick gel that instantly soothes and treats irritated lips. The gel feels cooling and leaves a lovely healthy shine. £10.00 at SpaceNK. Lip Smacker balms wouldn’t be first choice for a deep hydrating treatment but if you don’t like the taste of other balms, Lip Smacker have a wide range of flavours, you can get 8 sticks for £11.99 at TruffleShuffle
