Winter weather equals dry skin, dry hair, and most noticeably chapped lips. According to Dr. Arefa Cassoobhoy from WebMD, the dry air indoors, wind and rough weather outside contribute to worsening conditions since our lips don’t have oil glands. I surely can attest to this. Every year I have experienced lips so dry that they sometimes crack. This is of course because I am hardheaded and forget to keep lip balm on hand at all times. When I do remember to grab lip moisturizer I have a few go-to balms that have worked magic for me.
ChapStick Moisturizer Skin Protectant/Sunscreen
Looking for a budget-friendly balm, try this one.
Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
Relieve your chapped lips with this all natural balm
Kiehl’s Balm #1
Apply this balm once and you’ll be free of dry lips all day.
EOS Lip Balm
One of my top fave lip balms. I love the way the mint feels.
Vaseline Lip Balms And Treatments
The tried and true Vaseline always gets the job done.
