My Ultimate Hacks For Super Soft Lips

Ramadan Kareem! Ramadan is here and I am so happy because it’s such a special month for me! It’s a time of self-reflection where you go on a spiritual cleanse and try to be the best version of yourself. It means being kind, patient, and humble while also evaluating what’s most important in life and helping people as much as you can. But it’s also a challenge for Muslims because you can’t drink or eat from sunrise to sunset (or say bad words)!

And it’s not just our stomachs that fasting affects, the lack of hydration through the day definitely has a tremendous impact on our skin too. So, even though our skin is our largest organ, it’s actually one of the last things that gets the hydration it needs. This means that during Ramadan, it can be really hard to achieve that beautiful supple, glowy and hydrated look. Fortunately, there are SO many ways you can cheat it, so check out my super hydrating Ramadan skincare routine.

One of the first places dehydration shows is on your lips, and chapped and cracking lips neither feels or looks cute! Here’s what I like to do to keep my lips soft and hydrated during Ramadan:

Start with a Scrub

The ingredients in this lip scrub are the perfect solution to refreshing chapped lips after a day of fasting.

DIY Honey Mask:

One of my favorite ways to keep my lips soft and supple during Ramadan is a honey mask. It’s super easy, just slather your lips in honey every night before you go to bed, and just leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes before removing it. Honestly, this works wonders!

Lanolin Products:

A good lip balm is essential. I’ve always found products that contain lanolin have THE most amazing moisturizing properties; it’s actually a completely natural ingredient that comes from sheep’s fleeces. My favorite pure lanolin lip balms to date have to be Lanolips (which literally lasts allll day) and Dr. Lipp. I also love to smother my lips in our Huda Beauty Silk Balm in the evening, which feels so comfortable, super hydrating, and gives life back to my lips almost instantly!

My loves, be sure to drink as much water as you can in the evenings so your body can catch up on the hydration it needs.
