Lately, conditions in the area have been extremely windy. Extremely windy conditions can dry out your skin and your lips!

There’s nothing like having rough, dry, wind burnt lips. There’s really no lipstick, balm or lip moisturizer that can really help those dry lips like you need them to! However, there’s one great trick to making sure your lips are in perfect lipstick shape!

First, buy an extra toothbrush … it can be the least expensive one you can find! You don’t want to use it for your teeth!

Every morning before I apply my lipstick/gloss/pencil (whatever I choose that day) and I run the brush under the water faucet and brush my lips. You don’t have to brush hard, just enough to get off the dead skin. I run peroxide over the brush to clean it and put it up for the next day.

Then, you can apply a lip moisturizer and it will sink into your lips!

Finally, you’re good to go with your lip color application!
