Restorative Beauty: Lips Edition
Don’t let the cold air dull your glow!
While many people love the winter season and the cold crisp air, some suffer from the winter blues. Many of us would rather hide under our covers drinking a tall hot mug of hot cocoa or tea rather than having to put on 3 layers of clothing just to make sure we don’t turn into an icicle when we go outside. Whether you love the cold or you’d rather hibernate until the warm weather makes its return, it’s no secret that the winter treats us harshly. The cold air dries out our skin, dulls its glow, and leaves us feeling chapped and lousy – not a good look. On the bright side, there are tons of products out there designed specifically to put that moisture back into our skin, and you can also find easy tutorials that teach you how to make your own moisturizing products. Take control of your skin this winter season and combat those dry, chapped lips with the help of the products featured in this Restorative Beauty Series: Lip Edition.

This powerful lip scrub exfoliates lips, then provides instant hydration—quenching without a greasy feel.

Lips are left noticeably revitalized, fuller, and kissed with a hint of refreshing mint.
