The only lipcare I knew for almost all my adult life was using petroleum jelly during the wintertime. But as I got more interested in wearing lipsticks, I realized that my lips do need some TLC afterall. So, today I want to share with you my lip care routine or generally speaking, what I do for keeeing my lips hydrated and smooth not just in wintertime but all through the summer and transition season.
- Exfoliate: Just like other parts of the skin, lips also accumulate dead cells and exfoliation is the best way to get rid of them for smoother lips. I use the “Mint Julips” scrub from Lush cosmetics, which is simply a mix of mint and sugar granules but works wonders. It is a staple for me throughout the year. Mixing olive oil into sugar can also provide some very good exfoliation.
