There are a lot of factors that contribute to dry chappy lips. A beauty problem us girls face every now and then most especially during cold and extremely hot seasons. And if you love lip products, you probably have already noticed it's drying effects.
We obviously don't want dry and chappy lips right? What we want is to achieve a soft and plump lips; the perfect canvas for a flawless lipstick application. If you're one of the girls who are quite problematic in the lip department, or if you're someone who doesn't give a care on your lips at all, then it's time that you start taking care of your lips now and avoid more damage to it.
Aren't you curious how celebrities have super plump and kissable lips?
If you are, you might want to read on because I'll be revealing the ultimate secret to kissable lips!
The first secret is to EXFOLIATE. Our body naturally exfoliates itself but at times especially when we apply lip products every day, we need to help in the shedding process. So get rid of all the dead cells on your lips. We want a smooth surface to begin with. Our lips are thinner than the rest of our skin, it's more sensitive and thus, we need to exfoliate very gently. There are a lot of products in the market you can use, but if you opt for a natural way you can try using sugar as scrub 2-3 times a week.
The next step is hydration. Again, due to climate and environment factors, our lips tend to dry out very easily. If you are living in a tropical country like me here in the Philippines or if you are experiencing winter in whichever part of the world right now, chances are your lips are drying out. It is important to moisturize our lips every day; in the morning, night and after we exfoliate. One very effective lip moisturizer you can try is EOS Lip Balm. I'm pretty sure there are a lot of this brand in the malls near you. You can even shop for EOS Lip Balm at Staples
Pop of color
And now you're lips are prep and ready for a pop of color! If you want to be on trend and you want a matte finish, you can go ahead and apply your favorite lip product. As for me, I like Colour Pop's lip products because they're not very drying and they're very affordable too. You can also opt for a lip tint for a natural look. If you guys are from the Philippines, you might want to try KJM lip and cheek tint. I am in no way sponsored or paid for this lol. I simply just love their products! Or if you are a big fan of Korean makeup like I do, you can try and check Althea. They sell authentic Korean products from famous Korean brands directly from Korea. I have bought a lot of product already from them and I love them all. I have written my reviews on them here on the blog. You might want to check them out:

And lastly, you need lots and lots of water! This I must say is the most important yet the easiest way to achieve kissable lips. Make sure you bring a water bottle around everywhere you go!
