protect your lips this winter

As we head into the winter season, the cold weather can be quite harsh on the lips causing them to be dry, flaky and cracked. I put Vaseline on my lips every night before going to bed, it has helped me to keep my lips nourished and soft. I prefer to splurge a bit on my choice of lip protection that I use during the day. Below are a few products that are worth buying to keep your lips nourished and smooth.

Budget Buys

I have been using this product for a while and it repairs cracked lips and provides moisture. It has a very strong minty feel on the lips, you can feel it working when you initially put it on your lips. It’s also very compact, so you can put it in your pocket or in your purse.

Vaseline should be a staple in every home because it offers multiple uses. I apply it onto my lips every night before I go to bed and it has worked in keeping my lips soft and nourished for years. They have various sizes and I would recommend the 10ml or 50ml size for carrying around in your purse.

Exfoliate

If your lips are dry and flaky, it will help to exfoliate them before applying your lip balm. Exfoliating will help to remove the flakes and make it easier to apply anything on your lips. One of the options that has been used for years is to apply lip balm onto a toothbrush and gently brush against the lips, make sure not to over exfoliate. If that is not your vibe, below are a few options that you can try: 

This product offers exfoliation, 24 hour moisture and has a minty flavour.
