2 Steps To Moisturized Lips, Naturally
One does not need to reside in the North Pole with Santa and his busy elves to experience dry, flaky lips any time of the year. The sun, cold, travel and altitude can leave our smackers begging Santa for some solid lip products.
Did you know many lip products actually contain more than just the perfect shine or color? You might also find lead and metals such as aluminum, cadmium, cobalt, chromium, copper, manganese, nickel, and titanium.3. This data just made my lips pout!
With just two simple steps and some lip-loving, natural products, healthy lips can be yours no matter where you live.
Exfoliate lips at least once each week to buff away dry flakes and condition. I love Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, with several hydrating oils plus brown sugar to gently exfoliate and condition. You can taste the scrumptious brown sugar, try not licking your lips like I do.
* Depending upon your lip size (were you blessed with Angeline Jolie lips ~ lucky girl), put a scoop of Sugar Lip Polish in clean hand to allow the shea butter and jojoba oils to soften.
* Apply and massage onto lips.
* Rinse with a damp washcloth.
Now that our lips are freshly exfoliated and looking gorgeous, it’s time to slather on a layer of natural moisturizer. I have fallen in love with Ogee’s Sculpted Lip Oil, which is loaded with organic goodness like olive oil, jojoba oil, shea butter and coconut oil, among other lip-friendly ingredients.
This sculpted oil is more like a lip balm that spoils your lips with moisturizing goodness and a kiss of shine. I layer Ogee on every night before bed in addition to post-exfoliating.
Until next time, darlings, drink plenty of water, exfoliate and moisturize those lips just like you do your beautiful face.
