Winter weather takes a toll on your lips. The cold air and wind can leave your lips dry and dull, mainly because lips are delicate and not usually covered when outside. Here are some tips to beat the dryness and remain chapped-free.
Drink plenty of water. You could experience symptoms much quicker and long-term if you are dehydrated. Drinking water won't only help keep these symptoms at bay but leave them looking plumper and healthy.
For smooth and plump lips, exfoliate. It's recommended to do this in one week or less. It will remove the dead skin when winter weather has dried up, help with hydration, and make your lipstick look even better.
Here's how to exfoliate your lips properly:
1. Make sure they are clean; no makeup.
2. Gently exfoliate (DIY mask below)
3. Immediately re-hydrate (Maskeraide's Lip Mask)
DIY Exfoliate for lips: For an effective at-home recipe, use two things you probably already have in your cupboard; brown sugar (or white) and honey. The brown sugar crystals gently exfoliate and remove dead skin, while the honey adds moisture and healing.
It's essential to have a great source of hydration for your lips, such as the Maskeraide Lip Mask. Applying the mask throughout the day and before bed will return your lips to their healthy form. Bonus, the Maskeraide Lip Mask is tinted, leaving you with a settle colour while remaining hydrated throughout the day.
Following these steps, you'll experience a noticeable difference in your lips. To avoid your lips being chapped again, continue to apply hydration such as the Maskeraide Lip Mask throughout the day.
