Winter Skin Must-Haves | Lip Products
Goodbye chapped lips, hello perfect pout.
What’s the absolute worst part about winter? The damage it does to your skin. Harsh winds and frigid temperatures aren’t very forgiving when it comes to affecting our bodies, but all we can do is fight back. Thankfully, there are products out there that we can use to combat those winter woes and take our skin back to its wonderfully hydrated state. What we often overlook however is our lips. We already tried out some must-have products for our faces, and then we moved on to products for our body. Now it’s time to focus on our lips. The skin on our lips is very fragile, and no one once a painfully cracked and dry pout! Try out a few of our favorite Winter Skin Must-Haves | Lip Products and give your lips the love and moisture they so desperately need.
Step 1: Exfoliate
Tarte Facial Lip Scrub – $16
Harsh winter weather dries out our skin and often causes our lips to chap – not fun. This lip scrub will be your knight in shining armor. It’s hypoallergenic and works to condition and protect your lips by gently scrubbing away dry, flaky skin. It’s also made with shea butter and antioxidant-rich algae, which leaves your lips softened and nourished. Winter weather is no match for your lips with this product, and, considering it’s cruelty-free, your lips won’t be the only things thanking you each time you use this product!
Step 2: Hydrate
Rosebud Perfume Co. Minted Rose Lip Balm – $7
Once your lips are exfoliated and the dead skin has been scrubbed away, it’s time to hydrate your lips. Enter this minted rose lip balm. This balm’s sole purpose is to soothe dry lips and take them back to a hydrated state – goodbye chapped lips and fine lines! What’s more – it even heals any irritation. Strong winds and frigid temperatures will be no match against this baby.
Step 3: Prime
Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer – $20
In order to keep your lips as healthy and hydrated as possible, it’s important that you prime them before applying lipstick or anything like that. Prep your pretty pout with this magical lip primer. Its hydrating, quick-drying formula will lock in any color you apply to your lips, and it’ll stay all day (or night) long. This vegan lip primer will be the best thing that’s ever happened to you, so definitely make sure you make the (small) investment in this bad boy.
Step 4: Replenish Color
Arrow Boost Color Enhancing Lip Balm – $14
I don’t want to completely hate on the wintertime but let’s face it; it really dulls our glow. The cold weather seems to suck all the life (and color) out of our hair and skin and leaves us looking dull and washed out. Not fun. In comes this lip balm. Your natural lip color is enhanced by this balm’s formula, which adjusts to your unique pH, giving you a personalized lip hue. Lips are left hydrated and protected from ingredients such as mango and seed butter, and the best part: this balm is vegan, paraben-free, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. Say hello to your new lip partner in crime.
