Paying Lip Service
Cold weather can play havoc with your lips – follow our top tips to be kissalicious at all times!
- Up your intake of water – dehydration can cause your lips to crack to get glugging. Try and drink a couple of litres a day and keep a bottle in sight as it will encourage you to drink every time you look at it!
- Move away from the lip balms – they stop your lips from absorbing moisture so much better to use good old Vaseline. Put a big dollop on before bed time and wake up to soft lips - not great for your pillow case but what price beauty?
- Exfoliate with sugar and honey to get rid of flakiness – combine the ingredients to make a paste and gently apply with a flannel or your fingers. Massage in and leave on for a short while before rinsing off with warm water. Put some Vaseline on afterwards.
- Take in vitamin B, iron and essential fatty acids via your diet – think whole grains, tofu, leafy greens oily fish and seeds. Beauty comes from within and all that jazz.
