How To Get Rid of Chapped Lips This Winter
Among the many inconveniences of winter, chapped lips may be one of the worst. The cold air dries out our top layer of skin causes our lips to peel and crack. Factor in a few other unlikely moisture-sappers — whitening toothpastes and long-last lipsticks also contribute to dryness — and old-school balms and salves simply may not cut it.
The first step to soft lips, however, has nothing to do with moisture. No product will properly penetrate without a good exfoliation. Therefore we suggest first buffing lips with a gentle scrub, specifically Burt’s Bees™ 100% Natural Exfoliating Lip Scrub. Conditioning Lip Scrub gently exfoliates and conditions dry lips with Honey Crystals to help your lips look and feel beautiful and primed for a smooth lip balm or lipstick application. It’s formula nourishes and smooths dry lips with nutrient rich, responsibly sourced Beeswax, exotic oils and exfoliating honey crystals leaving them beautifully smooth and soft. Apply a generous amount of Conditioning Lip Scrub on to your lips, scrub in a circular motion to exfoliate and gently buff away rough, dry lips and rinse it off for a natural healthy glow. Can be used 2-3 times a week.
Once skin is sloughed, look for moisturizers packed with ceramides and natural oils — our go-to is Burt’s Bees™ 100% Natural Overnight Intensive Lip Treatment. This Ceramide rich formula reduces the appearance of fine line and helps repair your lips natural moisture barrier. Intensive Lip Treatment provides long lasting moisturization for soft, smooth, healthy looking lips. The intense lip moisturizing treatment with natural emollients, waxes and oils shields your lips from dryness while hydrating when you sleep and gets them ready for your favorite lip color. Apply generously to lips before bedtime so it will restore the healthy appearance of your lips while you sleep. You will wake up to healthier looking and soft lips! If desired, and your lips need some extra love, feel free to also apply during the day.
