I read it in a magazine. I usually do it every so often after getting out of the shower. I usually use a warm/hot wet towel and swipe a few times and they end up so kissable! Just the other day when I picked up my little brother from school, he asked "Do you always have something on your lips bcuz they sure are shiny!" It made me laugh. My purse is full of lip balms, glosses, and all sorts of stuff. Ppl who know me always say, "There you are putting on make-up again." But its just me re-applying lip balm or gloss to keep them hydrated.
