With power lips back for autumn/winter and red a strong contender for colour-of-the-season, it’s time to get your lips into perfect condition with a good, nourishing balm to keep them dewy and soft. A great tip for really getting rid of any lip dryness is to apply your balm with a cotton bud, using circular motions to really drive the balm into all the creases – you’ll be surprised at what a difference it actually makes. Buff your lips gently with a dry flannel, and if you own a Clarisonic, I’ve found that very good for overall smoothing. I love Decleor’s Aroma Solutions Balm with 100% aromatherapy oils that treat and nourish.
