Here are a few tips on how to take care of your lips, its the only pair you have!

While you might instinctively lick your lips to keep them moisturised, doing so actually leads to more dryness. Licking can also cause yeast to build up on the lips. This may lead to painful inflammation at the corners of the lips.


  1. Use an applicator or your fingers to apply moisturising balm liberally over lips, including at the corners.
  2. If you’re spending time outside and your lip moisturiser doesn’t contain sunscreen, follow up with an SPF 30+ lip balm.
  3. Reapply as necessary at regular intervals throughout the day


  1. Apply a small amount of exfoliating scrub to your fingertips.
  2. Gently rub over the lips in small circular motions for no more than 30 seconds.
  3. Leave mixture on lips for 10 minutes, allowing the nourishing oils to soak in.
  4. Rinse with warm water.
