How to use glycerine on the lips- 

  • Take a cotton swab and dip it in glycerine
  • Apply it generously all over the lips at night, before you go to bed

Make sure to repeat this process every night before going to bed to achieve soft, pink and healthy lips. If you are applying it during the day, leave it on your lips as a mask for at least 15-20 minutes and wash it off later.
