This article is right on time! Often, over the counter lip glosses are more for fashion not treatment. No sense of my lips sparkling and shining if they are cracking! lol…I’m going to try your honey recipe.
Interesting. I never thought about exfoliating my lips. LOL! I do notice that when I don’t drink enough water my lip peel. YUCK. It is even worst when I wear lipglass and don’t drink water. Thank you for these tips.
Thanks for sharing these tips. I definitely moisturize my lips but have forgotten about exfoliating.
You will notice that your lip color will go on so much smoother. Tracey
