It’s pretty unfortunate that Valentine’s Day lands in the middle of chapped lips season (a.k.a. winter). Prep your pucker for the big day with these pout proof steps! Your man will thank me!
Nothing is worse than kissing rough, cracked lips! The extra tough skin really kills the mood. Thankfully, Crystal Peel Lip Renewal Exfoliator ($18) works in 30 seconds and comes in an easy to use stick. If you are in a pinch, gently use your facial exfoliator to achieve similar results.
Hopefully you already use a good lip balm on a daily basis. The delicate skin on your lips needs the extra mositure and healing ingredients found in balms. You can use a petroleum jelly if you have a jar at home or try my all time favorite, Epicuren Tea Tree Lip Balm ($18). It comes in a tube and a pot, so pick your pleasure!
Have you figured out your makeup look for the big night? If you are going with a smokey or bold eye, I suggest going easy on the lips. Opt for a nude shade like La Bella Donna’s Mineral Light Lip Colour ($24.50) in Shell. Or go all out with a red lip! Check out How to Apply a Red Lip here!
Lip Gloss is the icing on the cake! It not only gives your lips a soft, kissable feel but it actually makes your lips appear fuller and more lucsious. You won’t be able to keep him off you! There are plenty of lip glosses available in zillions of colors. I’m so excited to tell you about my very own lip gloss designed just for Skin Care by Alana by La Bella Donna. It’s from their Baci Baci Moisturizing Lip Sheers ($26.50) collection. I named it Incredibly Beautiful becuase it looks gorgeous on all skin tones. You know what I’ll be wearing tomorrow;). You can also ensure your your whole look is kiss-proof with a swipe of Model in a Bottle Lip Sealer.
Home Remedies for Dry Lips
There are several home remedies to get rid of dry and chapped lips. If you find yourself without your favorite chap stick or lip balm, here’s what to do with what is already in your kitchen! Take a dab of olive oil, honey, coconut oil or almond oil and apply liberally to your lips. The natural oils will have your lips back in good shape in no time.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with love and happiness! Don’t put all the time in to you lips and then forget to SMILE! XOXO Alana
