Maid of honour etiquette every bestie needs to know
1.Switch it up! You may love your lipstick, but it might not be doing you any favours. That matte-effect lippy you loved so much in summer is low on moisture, so shelve it for now and opt for a tinted balm instead. You can wear a similar colour with hydrating benefits. Products that contain petroleum, shea butter or hyaluronic acid are particularly good at restoring the moisture balance. We recommend Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Nude Shimmer, R160.
2. Exfoliate. Code red: You've got a hot date but your lips are flaking! Keep things smooth with a little DIY exfoliation. Mix a dab of petroleum jelly and a pinch of sugar to create a buffing balm. Gently rub it on your lips, wipe off and you can literally kiss flaky lips goodbye.
3. Hydrate hourly. Keep cracks at bay by applying a specialised lip treatment that will inject moisture, heal cracks and soothe stinging. Just remember: Don't pick! You'll just leave your lips raw and irritated. Ouch!
We recommend Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour lip protectant, R130, available at selected Edgars stores.
