Even the slightest of change in temperature has adverse effects on my skin! Specially when the temperature gets cooler. The area around the nose and lips tends to get utterly dry! These dry patches are not only visible but even become painful most of the time. I have been noticing this discomfort since a long time until last year when I met these 2 amazing and simple hacks that cured acute dryness overnite (sometimes even instantly), which NO high end moisturizers or cold creams could do.
If you too notice dry patches and feel nothing works! Here you go…
1. Lip Balm
Yes! you heard it right 😀 Apply your lip balm (I have tried using Nivea and Neutrogena lip balms) on the dry patches. Let it sit for sometime, meanwhile you can proceed with your daily chores…. Or you can also apply it overnite and wake up to a happier skin!
I love this hack. It’s a quick fix. If heading out, you can use a clear lip balm.
P.S: I have tried the tinted lip balms also and they worked very well, but you might just want to test first if your skin is allergic to the stain (though I am sure all females are designed in a way that ‘Color on the face’ can never do any harm 😀 )
2. Coffee & Honey Scrub Pack
On a Sunday Morning when you are in a mood of some self pampering dose, mix in 1 teaspoon of honey with about 1/2 teaspoon of coffee (instant/filter), mix it well and apply the yummy pack on your face. Scrub and massage gently. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse it off. You will thank me for it 😀
P.S: The coffee can be slightly rough so make sure you massage gently with a very light hand.
These 2 hacks are my saviors and I am sure it would work for you as well!
