3 Steps Natural Lip Care Routine For Pink Lips
To take care of your lips, first it’s very important to understand the differences between the skin on your lips and the rest of your body.

Lips have fewer oil glands and therefore do not produce oils to help protect your skin, and also make them more susceptible to dry out.
Parched, chapped lips & other lip problems occur mostly because of the environmental & climatic conditions. It’s not only winter season that leads to more lip problems, but the dry air, sun are also responsible for chapped, dry lips.
Read on here for a 5 steps simple skincare routine that will help you get the killing pout with soft and pink lips naturally:
