Keeping your lips soft, pink and healthy sounds like a one step routine; we are talking about that lip balm in your purse, duh? We have been speaking to a lot of girls who are complaining how cracked and flakey their lips are getting, causing their striking, matte lipsticks to split.
You can apply some oils to moisturize your lips, and gently brush off dead skin with an old toothbrush, so it’s not too rough. You don’t want to be too harsh, where it can cause more damage. Another important tip is to stay hydrated! That’s usually the first step to locking in any lack of moisture in your body, in this fact what is probably causing your lips to crack. We advise: Only choose alcohol-free lip balms! Ok girls, we’re all about finding solutions, so first is first: exfoliate!
You can try a homemade lip scrub, that is super yummy, made with a few ingredients. And the best part; All Natural Baby! Include honey and almond oil with of course raw sugar to give it the scrubbing exfoliating power it needs.
Then choose whichever flavor you want; Grapefruit, Chocolate, Coffee, Raspberry, endless options girls.

Always look for shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax and coconut oil in the lip balms you decide to purchase to get the most results, since they are all known to protect from heat. We advise: Only choose alcohol-free lip balms! Apply generously and evenly to lips 30 minutes before going out in the sun, or whenever they feel dry or chapped.
Try using Vitamin E capsules, you can literally just cut one in half and apply it onto your lips. Vitamin E boosts circulation, which is what you need right now.
Or choose to moisturize with aloe vera; its soothing and healing benefits are always incredible.
A new trend is a lip sleeping mask. It is always better to lock in moisture while you sleep, since you aren’t moving your lips, talking or eating.
I keep seeing Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask all over the web, and seems like a great investment. Let’s give it a try, lovies!
Or How about these lip gels? I’m pulling out my credit card as we speak to try this!
A hydrogel lip patch that I believe will do the trick; with over 20 patches, and infused with botanical extracts sounds like a bet.
