While winter may bring beautiful snow and warm cozy fires, it also brings dreaded dry-lip days. Here are some of the best products out there to keep your lips nice and moisturized this winter season.
When your lips are starting to get chapped and dry during the winter, one of the first products to turn to is a classic: Vaseline. This product creates a protective barrier on your lips, locking in natural moisture and healing dry skin. It is amazing and will surely leave your lips feeling smooth, moisturized, and crack free.
Similar to Vaseline, Aquaphor is a petroleum jelly and does equally well at keeping moisture in your lips and healing dry skin, all season long. Since the product was designed for baby skin, it is also made for those with sensitive skin. Your lips and skin will be left moisturized and baby-soft as well.
3. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
Burt’s Bees is a very popular brand, known for the amazing effects of their lip balms. The balms are infused with beeswax, which softens and moisturizes your lips. It also infuses them with nourishing vitamin E to further heal and revitalize your lips. With many different flavors of both regular and medicated lip balm, Burt’s Bees are definitely one of the best ways to go to keep your lips dry-free.
If this winter season means cracked lips for you, think about getting some Carmex to solve all your problems. This product has been popular for years for good reason. This product not only moisturizes, but it truly has amazing healing benefits for dry and chapped lips caught by the winter cold. With its small container, it is an easy product to throw into your pocket for on-the-go exfoliation.
5. Smith’s Rosebud Salve
Open up this beautiful tin to smell the perfect, luxurious smell of rose in a smooth pink balm. This product is perfect for healing your dry lips and keeping them moisturized, but it also leaves your lips with a pretty pink tint. And if the dry winter air catches not just your lips but also the rest of your body, you’re in luck! This product can be used to heal it all: elbows, knees, hands, and more.
6. Maybelline Baby Lips Balm
This popular lip product is perfect for all day hydration and long-term healing. Baby Lips locks in moisture, keeping lips soft and smooth for eight hours and looking visibly renewed after a week of use. This is not just any lip balm, however. To look and feel great while also having the comfort of knowing your lips are being treated right, try Baby Lips tinted balms. An alternate to the drying effect of lipsticks, these are the perfect way to look great and keep your lips “baby soft” at the same time.
7. eos Balm
This product is perfect for on-the-go hydration. Eos uses all-natural ingredients and Vitamin A infusions to moisturize and heal your lips while preventing future chapping. Definitely give this product a try to avoid dry and cracked lips this chilly season!
