Sooooo I love lipstick… I could buy tons and tons of it, Matte lipsticks especially. To all the ladies who love lipstick like me you know if your lips are cracked your lipstick will look so crusty. (GENTS) this post isn’t just for the ladies. Cracked lips aren’t kissable lips.
Look at it this way when someone is talking to you, they look at your face right? I think cracked lips are like snot in your nose, people don’t want to be rude and stare but now when they are talking to you they cant even focus on what you saying anymore, all they can focus on are your cracked lips.
Forget the lipstick, and the kissing!!!Cracked lips are painful unbearably so, when you eat, drink anything and even when you brush your teeth. I find cracked lips depressing(I know I shouldn’t speak depression into my life and i know they are way more depressing things in life but cracked lips should fall into that category). They are like dark circles under your eyes, they drain the life out of you.
Whenever my lips I cracking I know they are a number of reasons for this
- The weather
- I was at the gym and old unfit me was breathing through her mouth the whole time (tmi)
- Or I need to add more vitamin B, A and C enriched foods to my diet.
If your lips are already cracked or cracking sometimes lip balm or Vaseline won’t be much help. Well I have a cure for that!!! As well all know “The Mona Lisa’s smile has a certain je ne sais quoi”, and after using this your smile will too.
Show your lips love once or twice a week and use these homemade lip scrubs. They are easy to make and you probably already have the ingredients in your pantry.
Citrus LIP Scrub (I got this recipe from a marathon mom)

- Olive oil/Almond oil/Coconut oil
Strawberry LIP Scrub (I got the recipe from BeautyBlunders blog and its amazing)

Use this before a date, for your Sunday Pamper routine (like I do) and prep your lips for perfect lipstick application for the week, do it as a couple (bonding time, LOL) it’ll be worth it.
