Chapped Lips This Winter? 5 Tips to Beat the Cold

I’m not a huge fan of winter, it’s true, but I do enjoy some of the benefits of the season. On the top of my list is great hair! The dry air keeps the frizz at bay and I love that! I also love the clear night sky. There is nothing more beautiful then looking up on a crisp winter night and being able to see every star. Plus I’m able to wear my boots and scarves for a little while, which is rare in Florida.

Even though I love these things, truth is that I really don’t like being cold. One of the things that bothers me most due to cold weather is dry lips, so I’ve put together a list of things that help me get through the winter months.

Lip scrub

I just love sugar lip scrubs, my favorite one is a sugar lip scrub from Basin. Lips scrubs are a great way to remove the dry skin from you lips and moisturize, leaving your lips incredibly soft!

Lip treatment

I recently tried a fantastic lip treatment from Dermalogica. This treatment is meant to wear over night and provides intensive moisture to your lips. As soon as I put this treatment on, I can feel it working because it makes my lips tingle. This treatment is good for fine lines around your mouth and it also plumps lips.

Drink lots of water

If you could only do one things for your lips, it is drinking plenty of water. In fact, the first sign that you are not getting enough water is dry lips. A good rule of thumb is to drink at least 64 ounces a day. Don’t like water? Try adding a slice of lemon, lime, or some mint to enhance the taste. Try this water bottle to take fruit infused water on the go!

Lip balm

My favorite new lip balm is one created by a teenage entrepreneur. If you haven’t had the chance to check out Honestly Margo, you should! She has some adorable products. I also love Rosebud Salve and just can’t go wrong with this classic!

Avoid licking your lips

This one is difficult, but it is a must if you want to keep your lips moist! Licking, or even biting, your lips can actually cause them to dry out more, so if they feel dry reach for that lip balm!

    Thank you for another great post. I think I’ll try out the rose salve, my poor lips are in desperate need of hydration. I also needed the water reminder, it’s easier to remember to drink water when it’s 100 degrees outside, but I forgot the importance of water in cold weather too.

  2. I have the world’s driest lips so this was definitely a great read. I’ve noticed that using A&D ointment really helps as well. It’s a diaper rash ointment, but works wonders for dry lips!
