It's a common thing that we do a regime for our skin everyday. It can be really short to extremely extensive, like the 10-step skincare routine or the classic cleanse tone and moisturize. This is to always make sure that we have a nice and steady base. But what about the part of the face that we don't include, like the lips? How is it going to get all the prep it needs? We use tons of lippies and re apply it again and again. We even crave for that perfect lipstick shade and when we find it, it's like our second skin. To apply it perfectly on our skin, we need to make sure that they are well taken care of! The best way to make sure they aren't flaky and dry we have to give them a little TLC. Here is a 3-step routine for a soft and smooth smooch!
Step one. Exfoliate
To remove any dry skin that has gathered on our lips we have to exfoliate using homemade remedies or with store bought goods.
For the homemade alternative you can scrub it down with sugar just gently massage it on the top and bottom lips, rinse off the excess. Do this two times a week

Step two. Overnight Mask
Leave this conditioner on at night in order to really make the lips plump and soft the morning after. You can use a homemade alternative or a store bought one
For the homemade alternative you can whip up your own mask using 1 teaspoon of plain yogurt and 1 teaspoon of honey just mix this together, and leave it on for about 10 minutes. The honey and yogurt will hydrate and soften your lips. Rinse after.
