One of Boston's most talented, award winning, and sought after make-up artists, Kerri Herlihy, shares much needed cold weather tips on how to take care of our lips:
Kerri's top 3 tips for soft winter lips:
Lush Lip Scrub
I have been hooked on these scrubs for years! They are made with castor sugar and organic jojoba oil to soften and smooth even the chappiest of lips.They have 3 tasty flavors in Mint Julip, Sweet Lips and Bubblegum, and can be licked off after exfoliating!
Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfolian
Kerri's latest lip scrub obsession, "While you cannot lick it off, it is super effective at ridding yourself of crusty chapped lips. I typically use this scrub at night before bed. Using small circular motions on the top and bottom lip, then removing with cool water. I then apply a small layer of carmex or aquaphor lip balm to help repair my dry lips while I am sleeping".
DIY Lip Scrub
Sugar is an amazing at home, natural lip scrub! When combined with Vaseline it is an amazing combo for super soft moisturized lips. You can add in (in a small bowl) almond oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, or olive oil. I use a baby toothbrush to apply and exfoliate. Using your fingers works well too! Give it a try!
