Lip care for winter

***Winter Lip care for Makeup Lovers***

If you are reading this article, then it means that you are dealing with dry or chapped lips.

Especially during winter the lips dry out super quick, as the oil glands decrease drastically. Due to cold winds the lips get damaged easily.

Taking care of only face won't be sufficient anymore, as chapped lips will make you look old. Hence it is crucial to take good care of lips as well during winter.

****Tips for healthy and beautiful lips naturally*****

1. Use good quality lip balm - Before going out in cold, dry weather, apply a lip cream or balm that contains sunscreen.

2. Do not peel your lips - The skin on your lips is thin and delicate. Picking at it can cause it to bleed and hurt, slow the healing process, and cause more irritation.

3. Do not lick your lips - Saliva evaporates quickly, leaving lips drier than before you licked them.

4. Maintain healthy diet - Maintaining a healthy diet is important in taking care of your lips. Making sure you are getting enough vitamins and minerals.

5. Stay Hydrated - Drink plenty of water. Dehydration leads to chapped lips.

6. Natural lip moisturizer from your kitchen – You can easily find excellent products from your kitchen for your dry lips. Ghee, coconut oil, olive oil or even un-salted butter is an amazing natural product. These products can be found easily in any kitchen, all or anyone of the above can help you achieve beautiful lips.

*****Lip care tips for makeup lovers******

If you are not too much into makeup then using good quality lip balm should suffice, but if you are a makeup junky like me and can't live without lipstick then you need to follow the below steps to have beautiful and healthy lips.

1. Avoid Matt Lipsticks - No matter what form of lipstick you are using, it is best to avoid such lipsticks which end up in Matt finish. Even Liquid Lipsticks are usually Matt, so better be careful and avoid them.

2. Never Apply Lipstick on Dry lips - Always make sure you apply the lip balm first and then wait for couple of minutes before you continue to apply the lipstick. If you apply the lipstick directly on the dry lips, your lips will loose more and more moisture.

3. Get rid of the dead skin - During winter it is necessary to scrub your lips in order to maintain even skin on the lips. Apply lot of Lip balm and then scrub your lips with sugar granules or else simply wipe the lips with turkey towel to get rid of dead skin.

5. Use Lip gloss to avoid dry lips - During winter the lips get dry even with the most moisturizing lipstick, hence it is recommended to apply lip gloss on top of the lipstick to lock in the moisture.
