Tips for Luscious Lips

A couple of tricks for the holidays:

* Use a small brush, like a toothbrush, to gently exfoliate your lips once or twice a week and then use your moisturizer to hydrate before using lip products

* Remember that lip pencils, long wear lipsticks and very matte lipsticks are drying to the lips – use a gloss over the top

* Don’t lick or chew on your lips; use a lip gloss, Burt’s Bees, or the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm (with sunscreen in it) at least 10 times a day if you are dry

Coming soon on SkinTour is an inexpensive and downloadable short guide to everything you need to know to get beautiful lips.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
