How to Care for Dry Lips and Favorite Lip Balms Review
Hi there! Remember how I mentioned I am always battling with dry lips in the colder months in my
Favorite Lip Glosses post? Well I am here today to share with you what I do to keep them soft and comfortable.
When my lips get flaky, after I brushed my teeth, I take a soft cotton towel, wrap around my finger and gently massage my lips to remove dead skin. Remember to be gentle, if a flake does not come of then it is probably not ready, leave it alone.
Afterward, I nourish my lips with hydrating lip balms, preferably natural or organic. Some of my favorite are:
100% Pure Organic Lip Balm: I have the mint and cherry flavor. I love the simple, organic ingredients (oil and beeswax). They glide on easily, hydrating, I don't have to keep on reapplying. Fairly price, $6 each. Love these!
Bobbi Brown Lip Balm: I love the packaging and I know some of you will dislike it for being in a pot. Moisturizing, smell great, feel good, add a nice sheen. It is not hard but on cold days, I need to rub it in a bit with a clean finger to warm it up. ($19)
Badger Organic Cocoa Butter Lip Balm: Not pictured but this is another great one that make a difference for me. Again I love that these are organic, safe ingredients and that they come in a variety of flavors. I am digging the chubby tube, not only do you get more product but it really feels good while applying. ($3)
The great thing about all the lip balms I mentioned is that I don't have to keep reapplying every hour. On a few occasions, for what ever reasons, my lips were uncomfortably dry and cracked, I experimented with argan oil. I would gently scrub, apply lip balm, then top it off with a drop of argan oil. Oh wow, the next morning, my lips were all nice and soft...I was shock. The argan oil I use is 100% organic argan oil. This is something I tried on myself and it works, for you, please check with your doctor or dermatologist before trying.
