Our previous blog post gave you some essential steps to prevent dry skin in winter. This one will deal with the most efficient ways to keep your lips in shape during cold weather. Let’s get started:
Lips need an occasional scrub too! During the winter, make sure you exfoliate your lips around once a week, so the dead cells get removed and your lips are soft and not flaky. You can get one of many lip scrubs or make your own at home, with sugar and olive oil!
- Bad Habits
Chewing your lips is never a good habit, but in winter it can get really tricky. By chewing your lips you make them vulnerable to cracking and small wounds, which get especially sensitive to wind and the cold.
The good old SPF never goes out of fashion! If you’re a dedicated skincare lover, you most likely know how important it is to use SPF even in winter. If your day cream has an SPF, apply just a bit of it to your lips too. A bit of protection can’t do harm!
Once again, back to basics. Pick a plain, basic lip balm and carry it in your bag. The protection it can give your lips is amazing, especially during harsh windy days. Just apply it before heading outdoors and you’ll feel the difference immediately!
