Let’s just say dry lips are a problem for a few of us, which lasts almost throughout the year. Chapped lips are not limited to a winter phenomenon; they need special treatments during summer as well. So, make lip care a priority and take appropriate steps to keep them all plump and pout-ready.

Exfoliate
Exfoliating your lips before the application of any products is very a important step that shouldn’t be skipped. Before you even think about applying any lip balm or lipstick, make sure you use a gentle scrub on your lips. This will help in ploughing away the dead cells from the lips. And fortunately, it is a simple process. Apply the scrub onto your clean lips, rub gently in circular motions, then rinse off and pat dry. That is all!

Lip balm
Lip balms are always at their full glory during winters and somehow miss to make it to our grooming kits during summers. These lip balms are very important summer aids, especially the SPF induced ones. If there is any one part that we forget to slap some SPF creams, that would be our lips. Do not make that mistake and get yourself a lip balm formulated with broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.

Makeup removers
Keep it mellow when it comes to removing makeup from your lips. Reach for things such as miscellar water, which is a gentle, no-rinse cleansing option. You can also use coconut oil to remove that water-proof lipstick. Whatever solution you opt for, make sure you soak a cotton ball in the liquid and gently wipe away the makeup – this wouldn’t require any rinsing or rubbing which will prevent drying lips out any further.
