The weather is changing and my lips seem to always stay chapped, dry and if I don’t take care of them they seem to split which hurts like hell. How can we keep our lips moisturized through the colder months? I’ve found three lip balms that are must-haves for the fall and winter months. I think you’ll love them too!
This vegan lip balm is petroleum and beeswax free. The formula leaves your lips very hydrated and gives you amazing shine. Some of the ingredients included are:
Wakame Algae: Helps restore the look of lip plumpness and visibly contours.
Rose Absolute: Luxurious, light, and contains a naturally calming scent.
Hyaluronic Acid: Helps smooth and plump the lip area.
I love using this balm in the morning because of the shine, and it keeps my lips very moisturized throughout the morning.
This lip balm is very creamy and rich. The doe-foot applicator makes applying this balm easy and great to keep in your cosmetic bag and to travel with.
Some of the ingredients included are:
Shea Butter – Protects the skin from dehydration and helps to restore skin suppleness, and increases moisturization.
Mango Seed Butter – A moisturizing emollient that helps to promote cellular rejuvenation. Mango butter is also known to protect against UV rays and appears to release salicylic acid.
3. LANEIGE – LIP SLEEPING MASK
This amazing sleeping mask leaves your lips moisturized all night. I also like to wear this during the day to give me that add moisture through cooler temperatures. Enriched with Vitamin C and Antioxidants, this balm will help to lock in moisture and leave the lips feeling soft and supple.
Some of the key ingredients included are:
Moisture Wrap™ Technology: Features a mineral network of moisture-rich beta-glucan to form an eight-hour time-release moisturizing layer over the skin; locks inactive ingredients and mineral water.
Berry Mix Complex™: Rich in vitamin C and antioxidants from a nutritious blend of raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, goji berries, and blueberries to soothe and soften, revealing smooth, supple lips.
Do I really need lip balm?
The primary purpose of a lip balm is to provide a layer of protection from external exposure and provide the lips a layer to seal in the moisture. With the weather changing to dry air, cold temperatures and wind, these all have effects on the skin by drawing moisture away from the body. The skin on our lips is very thin, which makes them very vulnerable to the elements and we see the signs of dryness immediately. So, yes…You need a lip balm.
