Healthy Rosy Lips
Lips are probably our most visible facial feature after our eyes and in today’s world of stress and pollution keeping
your body healthy inside out is a struggle.
I have already talked about lip care in a previous post that you can find here.
However in winters especially the dry arid winters of Karachi it seems no amount of moisturizing and hydration is
enough. And so today I am writing about a very specific desi totka to combat the dryness of lips which was given to
me incidentally by my paternal Granddad because he saw my dry lips long time back and which I found totally
effective once I tried it.
To moisturize your lips take a small amount of Vaseline pure petroleum jelly and rub it inside your belly button every
day. Yeap you heard me right! Inside your belly button. This will keep your lips rosy and soft throughout the winter
months. Frankly I use this totka off and on throughout the year because constant use of lipsticks and then refreshing
the same lipstick throughout the day can really dry out your lips. If you have small kids then this is a must do for
them during winters as it is effective for both adults and kids.
By the way the original totka calls for Desi Ghee or Desi Butter in the belly button. However since that has a very
distinct smell which is likely to permeate the clothes and body both this is the ideal solution/compromise.
