Skincare: preparing my lips for Spring!


Haga click aquí para la versión en castellano.

Happy Saturday!
This is a short post to share with you what I do to fight one of the ugliest looks, I mean dry chappy lips :P

I should know how difficult this is when you have a winter which is 6 months long! Cold outside and heated rooms inside do not help the skin at all, and make ti loose all its hydration, this is specially true for the delicate skin of the lips. 

As I have the driest lips on Earth, and no matter how much I drink and how many times a day I apply lipbalm, nothing seems to help. Or, rather, nothing SEEMED to help. Until I put these two to work together: A sugar scrub from Lush (this is the delicious "Popcorn" but there are others as delicious!) and a thick lipbalm that I use as a "lip mask" and nothing has resulted better for me as Nuxe Reve de miel lip balm. Ever since my beloved friend Christine has gifted me with this lipbalm I kept using it this way. It was a revelation for me! Thank you my dear Christine :)

So, I scrub my lips daily. Yes, daily, slightly and gently but daily. Before bed, as I check the last time my laptop I scrub my lips and then apply a thick layer of Nuxe reve de miel, and go to bed. I can't begin to tell you what a difference it has made in the way my lips look and feel. Not only I can wear matte lipstick again but also my lips do not crack anymore leaving me with injures that took days to heal.

So, this was my "hapy-lips" routine, which is yours?

Have a lovely weekend!
Love,
Nati

  5. Great to hear that it works for you! I've actually been blessed with not so dry lips in general. I usually scrub my lips after a shower like once a week, and that's enough. :)

  11. Io sono un disastro, non scrubbo le labbra quasi mai, sebbene io abbia i prodotti per farlo e anche se le idrato sempre con cura. Non ho particolari problemi di pellicine o secchezza, ma un bel trattamento ogni tanto dovrei farlo.

    1. Cristina io non mi farei un problema, se non ne hai bisogno, è meglio così! Quando ero in Argentina non avevo questi problemi (dico per il clima così humido tutto l'anno!! ma anche perché ero più giovane :/ )

  15. I adore lush lip scrubs! I still have one from a really long time ago and it's still in great condition but it doesn't sell anymore; vanilla and chocolate. It works wonders!! If my lips are for whatever reason in awful condition I tend to use aloe vera cream on it. Weird, I know, but very soothing and instantly repairs lips. Definitely recommend!

    1. Hi hira! it's nice to hear, I'm also a lush fan, and Aloe Vera fan. As southamerican we put Aloe to everything and anything. my granny has a huge plant and we use it directly from it! Here in Europe is not so easily available and more expensive too :/

  16. only lip balms with all natural ingredients are working for me :D

  17. I'm quite lucky and don't often get dry lips. But I always use a lip balm or if they are bad, EA 8 Hour Cream! :-)

  18. I have to admit that I don't really have a routine when it comes to lips.. maybe because I don't have many problems.. But this looks like a nice product and surely it's worth trying :-)
