Recently, we were all talking in the Studio about how dry and sore our lips were (it was a super cold and windy day here in New York), and the best remedies we know. So, there’s countless chapsticks and balms out there that will definitely help. But there are other ways to show your lips love, too.
Exfoliating is the best way to combat chapped lips. The oldest trick is the toothbrush — using a spare, brush it on dry lips in a circular motion. Voila! Dead, dry skin is gone! Or, you can always use a damp facecloth to gently wipe the flakes away. Recently, we’ve been seeing some exfoliants specifically designed for the lips. There is a need out there (why was it so hard to find lip exoliants before?)!! They’ll be the most sensitive towards the needs of your lips when they’re doing it especially tough.
