Though it’s not really notable like in summer when the sun is making you sweat like crazy, you really need to keep an eye on your fluid intake. If you are having troubles drinking plain cold water during cold seasons there are plenty of mild or spicy tea blends to choose from. Remember: Dehydration is the #1 reason for dry lips and skin.
How to get rid of chapped lips: First of all…. Don’t apply lip balm directly. Apply a lip peeling instead, to get rid of the dead skin cells. We love the ARITAUM Ginger Sugar Lip Scrub because it contains sugar and walnut shell beads which gently exfoliate the lips while nourishing them with ginger, orange oil and shea butter. Now you can apply the lip balm.
Or even better: Apply the ARITAUM Ginger Sugar Lip Scrub in the evening and follow with a lip sleeping mask. On a personal note, lip sleeping masks are my favourite, as I am very very very prone to dry and chapped lips and unfortunately, I love wearing lipsticks… You see my problem? This is why I love lip sleeping masks so much… they take care of everything over night, so I have a smooth canvas for my lipstick madness in the morning. I achieve the best effect when applying the lip sleeping mask after a lip peeling. ARITAUM Ginger Sugar Lip Sleeping Mask increases the moisture level by 17,5% and contains shea butter, murumuru butter, ginger, orange oil and beeswax. More good news: it doesn’t contain and synthetic fragrance or colours.
In case you want to combine a chemical peeling with intense lip treatment, we highly recommend the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask, as it’s peppered with Vitamin C and antioxidants from various berry extracts. Simply apply it in the evening and wake up with smooth and supple lips!
KLAIRS Rich Moist Soothing Cream does exactly what it claims without overloading or sitting on your skin. Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Anise Extract are just a few of the many botanical ingredients. To top if off: it doesn’t contain parabens, alcohol, harsh ingredients or artificial colours or fragrances.
In case you need a skin care ambulance, we highly recommend the J.ONE Hana Cream, as it’s loaded with peptides, fullere, hyaluronic acid and zhi mu, a plant commonly used in Korean traditional medicine to plump your skin and boost the radiance. Bear in mind that oily skin doesn't mean you should skip the moisturiser, as oily skin ≠ hydrated skin.
NEOGEN Bio-Peel Gauze Pads can be used by every skin type, even the most sensitive ones. These pads get their exfoliation job done, keeping your skin surface smooth and allowing better absorption for your serum, essence or moisturizer. If you want to know more about it: Miss V wrote an in-depth review about the Wine Bio-Peel Gauze Pads here.
In case you still want to use your mechanical peeling, we recommend mixing the peeling with your cleansing oil and gently massaging it on your face. This way, you will not only lessen the irritation potential, but also nourish your skin. KLAIRS Gentle Blac Deep Cleansing Oil and the KLAIRS Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish are a perfect duo for this method.
Our beauty editors like to keep is handy, which is why we love the Tony Moly x Pokémon Hand Creams. They fit into every purse and you’ve got your favourite Pokémon with you, helping you to keep your hands hydrated.
NEOGEN Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask is a pouch filled with luxury… it contains a knitted sheet mask and is literally drenched in 60ml essence. The mask covers your face and neck and believe us when we say there will be enough essence left even after 40 minutes, so you can also use it for your hands and décolleté.
Editors’ tip: Your feet need some love too! After you have removed the sheet mask of your choice from your face, use the remaining essence to pamper your feet.

Have you ever thought of putting wine on your face? No? Me neither. The consistency makes it a bit difficult. I’d rather just drink it and complain to my girl friends about stupid boys and later have a guilt trip for no reason at all. I’m wandering off, I’m sorry.
Long time no glow talk. Recently, there has been a lot of talk about an ancient remedy which has been a steady ingredient in many K-Beauty products over the past years: Propolis. The ancient Greek citadel? No… Not Acropolis. Hydrating, soothing and a powerful weapon against acne and oily skin are only a few good things about Propolis. Keep on reading why Propolis is the employee of the month when it comes to many skin care ingredients. Let’s talk about honey, honey.
