Keep Your Lips Kissable, Even In Winter

Wearing unprotected lip gloss is like lying in the sun slathered in baby oil. Many products designed for lips are made to shine or at most, moisturize. However, to really protect your lips from drying, cracking, peeling, blistering, and hurting, you need something with SPF. Furthermore, a regular old lip gloss will simply not do when you’re faced against the elements of sun, wind, and snow. Lip balms are generally hardier products for this time of year. So keep your lips protected – great for winter use, Spring Skiing, or even at the beach this summer.

My favorite thing to do with my chap lips is use coconut oil. It’s great if you are on the hCG Diet.

Consider the following winter lip balms with SPF:

Also, be sure you’re not guilty of the following sins:

  • Licking your lips frequently (Digestive enzymes and bacteria dries out the skin)
  • Using allergenic products (Some toothpastes, mouthwash & lipsticks cause chapping)
  • Taking medicine containing benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid or Retin-A
  • Wearing “long-lasting” lipstick (which has a chemical that really dries out the lips)
  • Leaving home without a scarf (which should be used as another buffer from the elements)
