Smoothest. Lips. Ever.

If you've got a case of crusty lips, let me give you a tip. Slathering more and more lip balm over your poor dry mouth is not going to suddenly make them feel all better. Nope, you've got to exfoliate them THEN slather in balm. Exfoliation can be as simple as rubbing a toothbrush over your lips. Or you can buy a scrub created specifically for your kisser. I like Treat Kiss & Make It Butter lip scrub. It's an all natural sugar scrub enhanced with shea butter, and lemon oil that works like a charm. I found it at St. Paul's fabulous spatique, Storm Sister, which has a great online store. I found a bunch of great stuff at this neighborhood favorite, but more on that later. Back to crusty lips...

My balm of choice is Verikira Naturals Lip Soother & Plumper. It includes DMAE and other antioxidants to help protect the delicate lip area from the signs of aging. Even more important? It feels incredibly smooth going on, and has a soothing almond oil scent. I'm a sucker for almond oil. Twin Cities Bombshells can pick up a tube at Spalon Montage; everyone else order online.
