NO TO LIP BALM: Many women are addicted to lip balm, but I want to wean women off. Needing lip balm is a clear indication that your body needs moisture, so the first thing to do is to drink more water.Dry lips start at the corners of the mouth and as soon as you see this, you need to exfoliate using circular movements with a toothbrush topped with a small amount of Vaseline.

I prefer enzyme, AHA-based exfoliators, which feel as though they are doing nothing but, in fact, are working away on your skin.
