Fall 2018 is right around the corner and before you know it, summer’s scorching heat will begin to fizzle. Beauty junkies know all too well what changing seasons mean…. Wardrobe change and makeup stash update to match the new season.

What’s the difference between lipstick and lip stain/tint?
Lipstick is wax- based while lip stain/tint is water or oil based. Lip stain/tint’s staying power is better and you can actually wear it all day without touch up. Good lip stains do not budge without ruining your lips.
The cold breeze of fall and winter can dry up the lips so you have to make sure that the lip stains and tints you choose are infused with ingredients that nourish, protect and moisturize. Get one that contains natural extracts to ensure that your lips will remain soft and supple.

- Easy on the Lipstick. This summer give your lips a break and use tinted balms or gloss enriched with Vitamin E and natural extracts that will protect and nourish your lips. Don’t forget to use lip products with broad spectrum SPF.
- Drink a Lot of H20. When you’re dehydrated, your lips will suffer. Drink 8-10 glasses of H20 every day and more if you engage in strenuous activities.
- Exfoliate Once a Week. To keep your lips soft and flake free, use a natural lip scrub like sprinkled sugar on lemon wedge to remove dead skin cells. Then apply olive oil, coconut oil or rosehip oil to moisturize. It’s best to this at night to give your lips time to heal.
- Stop Licking Your Lips. Saliva dries up the lips and cause the area around it to darken too. The digestive enzymes found in saliva irritate the thin layer of skin on the lips.
- Do Not Smoke. Excessive puffing causes lips to darken and wrinkle. Smoking stunts the collagen renewal process in the body. If you desire healthy looking lips and skin, ditch the habit.
