The Ultimate Lip Care Kit For A Perfect Pout This Winter!
‘Tis the season to be smiling… but how can you bring out that ‘cheese’, if your pout is dry and chapped? Winter is the worst time for your lips — the cold and dry weather causes them to lose their hydration, leaving them chapped and flaky.
The same way your face needs some extra TLC during extreme weather changes, your lips need it too! And nourishing them is as necessary as taking care of the rest of your skin. This means exfoliating, moisturising, and even using lip colours that don’t aggravate or irritate your lips during the season.
So, what we’re trying to say is if you want a luscious pout this winter, then these must-have lip essentials should be in your kit.
Lip balms are an essential — whether you step out or stay indoors. Tinted or plain, keeping a lip balm handy really helps with soothing your lips and hydrating them when necessary. Apply lip balm generously on your lips, and reapplying it whenever your lips feel dry.
Every alternate evening, apply a mask on to your lips so that the moisture locks in. It also brightens and plumps up your lips. Secondly, just like your skin, your lips also need to be exfoliated — therefore make sure to scrub the dead skin cells out. Do not over exfoliate as this will leave your lips feeling too tender.
Lastly, do wear a lipstick that moisturises your lips rather than dries it. Say no to mattes this winter, as they might dry out your lips, and pick moisturising lippies instead.
