There’s nothing nice or pretty about chapped cracked lips. Harmattan shouldn’t be an excuse either. The lips should be soft, supple and free from cracks. Some few tips that can help both men and women maintain soft moisturized lips are;
▪Exfoliate: a simple gentle exfoliation goes a long way in caring for the lips. Use lip scrubs to remove dead skin cells from the lips, this can be done weekly. An easy way is to gently use a toothbrush to exfoliate the lips in circular motions.
▪ Always apply lip balm daily.
▪Apply lip oils at night before bed if you have dry skin.
▪For ladies who love matte lipsticks, try to skip a day or two and opt for gloss. This way the lip isn’t dried out all through the week.
▪Ensure to wipe off makeup before bed, dirt and residue can build up causing breakout around the lips.
▪Always have a lip balm handy to reapply all day.
▪ Use lip balms that contain Spf 30 and above to protect the lips.
