7 Ways to Care for Your Lips this Winter

Dry, colder temperatures can really take a toll on our lips during the fall and winter seasons. This is why it is so important to give them some extra attention the next few months.

Here are 7 tips on how to have your most luscious lips all winter long.

Drink water: This may be a given, but staying hydrated keeps the moisture levels in your body up. Make it a goal to drink 6-8 glasses of water each day to properly hydrate your body to keep your skin, lips and body as a whole happy.

Moisturize: During colder months when our lips are dry, sometimes you need something more moisturizing than your basic chapstick. Our rich emollient shea butter provides the much needed moisture to keep our lips soft and supple while the cherry flavor is delicious in our Shea Cherry Lip Butter. Always apply before going to bed because many people sleep with their mouths open which will zap away the moisture in no time.

 

Exfoliate: Let the natural ingredients in our Lip Exfoliant polish away dry and dead skin cells. This sugar-based scrub

will reveal lips that are healthy and revived, and don’t forget to apply your Lip Butter after exfoliating for your softest lips yet! This Lip Duo is definitely a fall and winter essential.

Sleep with a humidifier: Even if you don’t have naturally dry lips, the dry heat indoors and decreased humidity during the cooler months can zap the moisture you do have. Sleeping with a humidifier helps to restore your skin, and lips, to a more hydrated and supple state.

 

Avoid licking lips: Although it may feel like licking your lips initially solves the issue of chapped lips, it actually makes it worse! Every time you lick your lips, you are coating them with a layer of saliva. Saliva contains enzymes and chemicals used in the digestion of food, and these enzymes can lead to additional dryness.

Choose the right products: While we all love some beautiful color on our lips, opt for wearing our rich Lip Butter especially when wearing your mask! If you do want to wear your lipstick, choose our Lip Butter Lipstick that is also infused with moisturizing vitamins and Shea Butter!

Protect from the elements: Cold weather and the winter winds can cause some serious damage when exposed to your lips. Breathing in cold air through your mouth can also dry them out. Protect your lips when going outdoors by covering the bottom half of your face and breathing through your nose.

There you have it! 7 ways to keep your lips happy and healthy through the fall and winter months.
