And now that Valentine’s day is just around the corner, I wanted to share my routine to get soft (and kissable) lips. The same way I take care of my skin, I do the same for my lips. I clean, exfoliate and moisturize.
In the mornings, I exfoliate with a sugar based scrub and hydrate my lips. Lately, I have been loving the frank body Lip scrub and lip balm duo, it has a sweet coffee taste, perfect for boosting up the mornings, while buffing away the dead cells and the balm is a petroleum-free jelly that hydrates. During the day, I wear a moisturizing lipstick, like Clarins Joli Rouge, which has an array of nice colors enriched with mango oil and it is long-wear (6 hours) so you can wear it all-day without drying your pout. And at night, after removing my makeup and lipstick, I apply an anti-oxidant lip repair cream like Skinceuticals restorative lip cream which was recommended to me at the office of Dr. Johnny Salomon for it’s anti-aging properties and how it smooths your lips by accelerating cell renewal while you sleep.
