Is it just me, or do your lips take a beating this time of year? My lips constantly feel dry, tight, parched and cracked during the winter months and I hate this feeling, how about you? So my mission during this time of year is to use whatever beauty products are necessary to keep my winter lips hydrated, moist and supple. And let’s not forget kissably soft!
Here’s my top secret recipe for keeping my dry lips flake free, well hydrated and happy during the cold winter months:
Step #1: Exfoliate your lips a couple of times a week with one of my all time favorite products Sara Happ Brown Sugar Lip Scrub ($24). This relatively simple yet inspired product was created in the kitchen of self proclaimed beauty junkie Sara Happ. Sara was sick and tired of having to concoct her own at home lip scrubs to get rid of dry, flaky skin; so she created this yummy sugar scrub to exfoliate and eliminate chapped lips in a very tasty but effective way.
Just massage a little bit of this luscious scrub onto your lips using gentle circular motions, leave it on for a few moments to let it do its magic, take a taste if you’d like, and then wipe it away with a tissue. Your lips will be soft and supple and your yucky winter flakes will be gone, long gone. This scrub is available in seven flavors: cocoa, almond creme, peppermint, vanilla bean, limited edition creme brulee and my two favs cinnamon sugar and brown sugar.
It is a beautifully made formula that feeds your lips with 100% certified organic plant ingredients like Intellimune Seed Oil Complex–an anti-aging, synergistic blend of black cumin, pumpkin, red grape, red raspberry and cranberry seed oils, and coconut, sunflower seed, castor seed and palm kernel oils. Given all of these wonderfully healthy ingredients, you get both external and internal nutrition and antioxidants every time you lick your lips. (FYI:I also adore Intelligent Nutrients Anti-Aging Serum and you can read more about it HERE).
Pssssst. . . . . have any lip secrets of your own to share? Whisper them here, I’ll never tell.
