DRY, FLAKY, CHAPPED LIPS ARE NOT SEXY! CHECK OUT THIS WINTER LIP TREATMENT TO BANISH CHAPPED LIPS THIS WINTER.
I hate when my lips are so chapped and dry that they look like raisins. With the dryness of winter combined with icy winds, my lips surely take a beating.
But never fear! I found a simple solution to combat dry winter lips and it’s also super cheap.
All you need is: Honey and Aquaphor!
Honey is a great moisturizer. It’s a natural humectant, which means it promotes the retention of moisture. You can use any type of honey that you like
Aquaphor is a great skin protectant. It acts as a sealant in the winter lip treatment, making sure that the moisture does not escape from your lips. It is petroleum based, which some people avoid.
However you could use Alba’s Un Petroleum Multi Purpose Jelly instead.
So here’s what you’re going to do:
Right before you go to bed, lightly apply a thin layer of honey on your lips. Follow it up with a thin layer of Aquaphor or Alba’s Un Petroleum Jelly (whichever you prefer). Make sure you use a thin layer of each because you don’t want to stick to your pillow or ruin your pillow case.
That’s all you are going to do. I promise when you wake up, your lips will feel so silky and smooth.
You might want to lightly exfoliate them in the morning by gently rubbing your warm washcloth over them in circular motion. This will ensure that all of the dead, dry skin that remains will be removed. Afterwards, apply your favorite lip balm or lip salve and you’re good to go.
