You just bought a new lipstick from that brand you were eye-balling on Instagram. You received it in the mail and you can’t wait to try it. The only problem is, your lips are really dry. When you look in the mirror, you noticed that you have chapnia!
You haven’t had chapnia in a while. The last time you did it was last year in the winter time. There are sugar scrubs in your artillery of lip care. Out of all the flavors, you pick the lip scrub that tastes like cupcakes and rainbows. Sounds like a great snack, but you find that your lips are still flaky and it’s ruining your lip look. What do you do?!
Here’s a guide to relieving chapnia from the girl who has gone through it all.
Say Goodbye to Chapnia! And Say Hello To Smoother Lips
TIP #1: Hydrate!
This seems really obvious but you would be surprised how much of a difference it makes when you constantly drink water. When lips are chapped, that can be an indicator of dry lips. It’s another way of your body telling you that it’s thirsty. Drinking lots of water does wonders for your skin too. You’re Welcome
TIP #2: Don’t Use Sugar Scrubs!
Exfoliating your lips is important for buffing away dead skin. Every brand known to existence has some sort of sugar scrub for lips. They all claim they smooth out your lips right? What they don’t tell you is that those scrubs still leave flakes behind and are too abrasive for lips. In fact, your lips are 100x more sensitive than your fingertips! Who knew!?
TIP #3: Using The Right Lip Products
You’re probably wondering “If I can’t use a lip scrub, what can I use?” There are lip exfoliators that buff away dead skin without being tough on lips. The Aquareveal Smooth Talker Water Peel For Lips is unique in that it lifts away the dry skin flakes without any harsh scrubs whatsoever. It is a water-based formula that has Smart Exfoliation Technology™. This is just a fancy way of saying that this lip peel will only exfoliate the dead skin you have and nothing more. With the Smooth Talker Water Peel For Lips, you can use it to create the smoothest lips before applying lip products.
TIP #4 Don’t Over-Exfoliate
As the saying goes, “Old Habits Die Hard” and excessively exfoliating lips is one of them. We’re so used to seeing influencers exfoliating their lips before applying lip makeup everytime that we naturally picked up on that. Another fact about lips you may have not known is that they do not have oil glands like the rest of our skin. So if you’re constantly rubbing your lips, you’ll dry them out from taking off excess skin. Not to mention, you’re not allowing your lips to retain moisture. For lips, you just need to exfoliate 1-2 times a week at most. If you plan on wearing a liquid lipstick, exfoliate, use a lip balm, add your favorite lip liner (optional) and lipstick and voila! Smooth lips with a kick of color.
