As with just about everything, prevention is better than cure. Keep your lips moisturised by applying lip balm before bed every night, as well as during the day as you feel necessary – especially when it’s windy or when you’re in a climate-controlled environment.

Super pigmented matte lipsticks are great, but there’s no denying that they’re drying. Don’t wear them every day, and remove them properly with make-up remover followed by a gentle exfoliation by means of a face cloth or soft toothbrush.

Use oil-infused lip products like Lancome Juicy Shakers, R270 (Lancome counters at department stores. They’ll give you a wash of colour while conditioning your lips.
