Tip 2: Matte lipsticks might be the reigning lipstick in today’s times, but they dry out your lips and aren’t the best lipsticks to use during winter. Lips glosses and creamy lips colours on the other hand impart colour to your lips while also keeping them moisturized. If you absolutely aren’t comfortable with any other kind of lipstick, prep your lips with lip balm before applying matte lipstick.

Tip 3: During winter, the drop in temperature tempts us to gravitate towards warmth-giving things. However, stay away from hot baths as these will dry out your skin and lips. Lukewarm baths, on the other hand, are a lot more comforting and also safe for your skin.

Tip 4: Just because it’s winter, don’t put away those SPF enriched products. Even the mild sunlight of winter can be damage your skin. So, when stepping outdoors, prep your lips with a lip balm that also offers SPF protection.

Tip 5: Exfoliation does wonders for your lips, more so in winter. It helps get rid of dry skin and also improves blood circulation, making your lips soft and plump. To exfoliate your lips, mix together sugar and olive oil and massage your lips with this grainy mixture for a couple of minutes.

Tip 6: You might apply lip balm regularly, but, this doesn’t mean that you don’t need to moisturize your lips. To keep your lips well-hydrated through the severe winters, apply a lavish layer of petroleum jelly every night.

Tip 7: Apart from resorting to various moisturizing products, to keep your lips chap-free and soft, you’ll have to curb harmful habits like pulling dry skin or chewing and licking your lips. This will only cause your lips to bleed and dry out further.

Tip 8: You might do your best to moisturize your body from the outside, but, the same needs to be done from the inside as well. Hence, it’s important that you drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Consume lots of healthy beverages like natural juices and soups to increase the water content in your body.

Tip 9: Do you guzzle cups of coffee by the hour? Well, if you desire luscious lips, put a full stop to excessive coffee consumption. Opt for decaf coffee instead or better still, take the healthier route by consuming cups of warm herbal tea.

Tip 10: Tweak your diet to include lots of fresh, leafy vegetables. Leafy vegetables are not only rich in essential minerals and vitamins but also have very high water content, hydrating your body from the inside.

Well, by following these lip care tips for winter, you’ll enjoy soft, smooth and kissable lips throughout this chilly season.
