These are the first and foremost to be affected as soon as the first winter breeze arrives– yes, our lips are the most tender and delicate part that need care in this harsh season of chill. Panic not, as Permanent Makeup expert and Executive Director of ALPS Beauty Clinics, Ms Gunjan Gaur, shares some super useful tips as well as home remedies for your pout to be as fresh and calm as the winter season itself!
To take proper care of lips, it is important to avoid certain things like licking our lips in order to keep them moisturized, which is not true and even dries them further. Instead, using a lip-balm on regular intervals is rather recommended to maintain well-hydrated pout. One should also never scrub her lips while scrubbing the face as it can cause serious harm to the delicate skin of the lips. Also, during winter season avoid very matte lipsticks as they can make your lips appear chapped and lifeless. Go for glosses to complete your look.
A simple remedy for dry lips can be done by making paste of rose petals with honey and applying it on the pout. Keep it for few minutes and wash off before it dries. Honey will hydrate and nourish your lips while rose petals will infuse a rosy blush on them.
One can also take care of her lips without touching them! Yes, putting a drop of desi ghee or sarso oil for an overnight can help in bringing back the luster of your pout in no time.
For your little kids, you may try cleaning their lips with kalawa/molli available in your pooja ghar. This will make their lips naturally pink and beautiful for years to come.
After removing your lip color and before hitting the bed in the night, try massaging your lips with fresh malai. This will not only soothe the chapped lips but will nourish them from within during an overnight’s time. And the next morning you will be ready with winter-proof, rosy lips!
