Summers are on their peak, and my lips are on the verge of ripping off from dryness. It’s my all the year round problem. My lips are always dry. Although there are some happy days in monsoons when I feel comfortable with my lips!
That said, I can now move on to share with you guys how I take care of my stubborn dry lips and the products I bought for summer lip care.
PRODUCTS FOR SUMMER LIP CARE
Maybelline Baby Lips SPF 20 Lip Balm in Berry Crush
Price Rs. 190 for 4gm of product
I think this is one lip balm that can be used anywhere, any time. I mostly use it during the day, the spf protects the lips. I wear it to the gym, during a lazy stroll in the park or whenever my lips feel dry. And this Berry Crush gives such a cute sheer reddish tint to the lips – you would fall in love with it. So, yes I always have this one with me. 🙂
Nyassa Lip Moisturizer
Price Rs. 250 for 5gm of product
Nyassa is a Mumbai based Indian brand. I first ordered the cola flavour from Amazon. And this time I ordered Bubblegum flavour. Both of them blew my mind. First, the distinct flavour of cola which we generally don’t get in lip balms. I literally ate it. The bubblegum flavour is also so yummy to smell...just wow! I must tell you they taste sweet (Sorry! 😀 ). This lips balm has an amazingly smooth texture. It moisturizes your lips so beautifully – you want to apply it again and again. And it has completely natural ingredients! I am gonna try all the flavours of this lip balm. It doesn’t have any SPF. So, I use it whenever I stay at home or at night. It’s available online on Nykaa and Amazon.
Forest Essentials Cane Sugar Lip Scrub
Price Rs. 475 for 5gm of product
I adore Forest Essential products. Forest Essentials is a luxurious Ayurveda brand of Indian origin. So, I think it understands the needs of Indian skin better. And this lips scrub is one of a kind. A sugar based scrub with loads of citrus flavour and moisture. You can even eat it if you want! 🙂 I scrub my lips with this every other day for 5 minutes. It sheds off all the dry skin, makes my lips smooth and softens them. I also use before applying any matte lipstick. Being an Ayurvedic product, I need not say it’s natural and harmless.
Home Remedies for Lip Care
Besides using these products to soothe my lips, I sometimes do these home remedies :
- Lightly rub your lips with toothbrush every morning. Sheds off all the flakes and plumps up your lips too! ❤
- Apply rose petal juice plus glycerine as a lip mask/ lip pack. Makes lips very soft and pink when used regularly.
- Stay hydrated, specially during summers.
- Never ever sleep with lipstick on. Always remove all your lip makeup, clean, apply a rich moisturizing lip balm and sleep. 🙂
Hope this helps you to get through this summer with beautiful soft and plump lips! 🙂 Hit the star if you liked this post and plz share your views in the comments. 🙂 Take care!
