It’s winter, the season of utter cold, the time when you just want to lay in bed with some hot cocoa and read a really good book. It’s the season of Christmas, the year’s end. But it’s also the season of dry skin and chapped lips. I love winters (not more than summer, summer rules, winter drools :P ) but what I don’t love is the chapped lips. I try and do as much as I can to prevent them from chapping (and it does work) but, alas my laziness takes over.

Here are some tips for healthy lips this winter:

Keep a lip balm around
Keep a nice lip-balm around for winters. Make sure to carry it around where ever you go and re-apply it whenever necessary.

Make a lip scrub
You exfoliate your skin, you exfoliate your body, but you always forget your lips. There are several recipes online that you can use to make your own lip scrub.

Exfoliating removes dead skin cells leaving your lips soft and beautiful!
I use cinnamon scrub for myself; I found the recipe for it online.  

Don’t wear lipstick that dries your lips
Don’t wear the kind of lipstick that strips your lips of moisture, leaving them to chap. If you must use a lipstick, try using a better brand.

Use petroleum jelly at night
I dab my lips with excess petroleum jelly while sleeping at night and in the morning, they are soft as butter!

Don’t lick your lips
You think it would help, but it’s just a trick. Invest in a lip balm, my love. It looks sexy in movies, but it leaves you with dry lips in real life, beautiful. 

Don’t pick on your lips
I end up with bloody lips every time I do that. I look like I have been in a bar fight!

Buy lip-butter
 I love lip butter! Try it!
