dry lip remedies

Being Canadian, I’m quite used to subzero temperatures. And with cold weather, dry lips are inevitable. Here are a few tips to help keep your lips soft and smooth year round!

The easiest cure for any dry skin, including lips, is exfoliation. For this, I have two simple methods. 

1. A Toothbrush

Gently “brush” your lips in a circular motion for a minute (tops). Key word: gently. The skin on your lips is very thin, so be conscious of that.

2. Sugar Scrub
Make a paste using granulated sugar and water and rub the mixture on your lips in a circular motion, again for only a minute.

Bam! Instantly softer lips.

conditioner. I’ve recently purchased my first BABY LIPS by Maybelline New York in “Too Cool.” This specific flavour is medicated, so it feels extra cool and soothing. I’d definitely recommend it for the winter months. Other lip balm products I love include ChapStick in

Tip: try and make a routine of applying lip balm before bed to prevent drying out overnight.
