I saw a ChapStick ad this morning before a video on YouTube, as well as the woman in it stated that our skin is thinnest on our lips.
I thought, yeah…maybe that’s why mine hurt so much every winter!
It’s always the same, too, every year. When winter rolls around, so much ouch. My lips get cracked as well as dry, as well as it hurts.
It gets worse for a few weeks after we go to my in-laws in Redding, which is a town near the Oregon border.
Weirdly, Oregon gets a ton of rain, however Redding, even though it’s close, does not. I swear, the air there gets drier than the inside of a hot oven.
Pisici & machiaj Sweatshirt?
But time has taught me a few things that assist my perpetually parched pout. I hope they assist yours too.
Exfoliate. It’s easier when my lips are soft as well as damp, like right after I get out of the shower.
Every when in a while I’ll mix a spoonful of sugar with a bit honey or olive oil, as well as carefully scrub (more like rub) that on my lips with an old toothbrush after I shower.
The Nimbus Microfine Regulars are incredible for this, by the way. Softest toothbrushes I’ve ever used.
They’re type of difficult to find in stores… I’m not sure why, however here’s a five-pack on Amazon for $14. extremely recommended.
Brush your teeth (and your lips), kids! (And don’t fail to remember to floss.)
If diy doesn’t noise good, then you can utilize a routine lip exfoliator instead. Fresh Sugar Lip polish ($22.50) is an excellent choice, as is rich Mint Julips Lip Scrub.
2. A balm before bed
And keep it right on your nightstand, where it’ll be simple to keep in mind (and reach).
I apply a thick layer of balm after I kiss El Hub as well as Tabs goodnight. It’s ended up being part of my routine bedtime routine — 1) kiss El Hub, 2) kiss Tabs, 3) insert mouth guard, as well as 4) smear a thick layer of lip balm on my lips. Zzzz …
Nuxe Reve De Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm ($19) is the one on my nightstand now. It’s almost as thick as a paste as well as tastes as well as smells like honey.
The huge glass jar isn’t super practical to bring around during the day, however it’s purrfect for bedtime at night.
3. Guzzle water
For genuine though! drink a sh*t-ton throughout the day. I notice a big difference when I autumn out of the habit of drinking sufficient water, as well as it’s not just that my lips get drier. My skin gets worse as well as less, I dunno…plump?
The difference is crystal clear, particularly in winter. When I don’t drink sufficient water, my lips get tow up.
4. Lips requirement like (and prep) too
I keep bit lip balms everywhere, including one with my primers to remind me to prep my lips when I begin to apply my makeup. That way, the balm has time work its balmy magic while I work on the rest of my look.
By the time I get to the lip part of my makeup (which I usually do last), I blot the staying balm with a tissue, as well as apply my lip liner, lipstick, etc. on top.
Ideally, I like slick, smooth, un-tinted balms for this, so they don’t interfere with anything else my lips are wearing.
Lately I’ve been prepping with Alba Botanica Hawaiian Lip Balm in Nourishing Coconut cream ($2.99), which is super moisturizing as well as GREAT.
Shout-out to my mom-in-law in Redding for getting me hooked on it!
It tastes as well as smells a bit like coconut, as well as it’s simple to layer other products on top of it, too.
5. MacGyver your method to more moisturizing lip color
I chosen up this brilliant tip from a wet seal sales partner circa 1995. That woman was obviously smart beyond her years.
And right here it is: produce your own moisturizing lip color by lining as well as filling out your lips with your preferred lip pencil; then apply a layer of moisturizing balm on top.
Lately I like MAC pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Staunchly stylish (a gnarly nude peachy pink) with hourglass No. 28 Lip treatment Oil ($42) on top for this.
Yes, $42 is the most I’ve ever spent on a lip balm, however I youngster you not — it’s more hydrating than Niagara Falls.
OK, I am kidding. however it is incredibly moisturizing.
I like that it’s likewise a bit sticky, so it lasts a long time, as well as the shiny surface makes it look like I’m using gloss. I usually stock up during the Sephora VIB sales.
