Caring for Chapped Lips

There's nothing worse than a set of dry, cracked smackers. It's painful, looks pretty nasty and it's common during the cold, winter months. Read on to find out how you can prevent and treat chapped lips!

Chapped Lips - Medicated Moisturizers

Blistex has different products to suit your different needs. Lip Medex forms a medicated barrier on your lips to help lip cells return to their natural moisture balance. And Daily Conditioning Treatment for Lips has a sunscreen protection of SPF 20 to protect your lips from sunburns. Plus, it smells like caramel!

Chapped Lips - Natural Conditioners

MAC lip products are made of natural ingredients like avocado and shea butter. The Lip Conditioner with SPF 15 is great cuz it's a non-sticky, non-goopy balm that repairs dry lips by sealing in moisture. It comes in a small jar or tube in both tinted and untinted formulas.

Chapped Lips - Smoothing Soothers

The Body Shop carries great goodies like Born Lippy Lip Balm, but one of the best products is Lip Scuff. It looks like lipstick, but polishes and softens lips with natural exfoliators, including blue corn powder and macadamia nut oil. Vitamin E Lip Care with SPF 15 is a vanilla-flavored balm that conditions, protects and soothes your lips from the drying effects of the cold weather.

Forget Tic Tac - try Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine, a 3-in-1 product that moisturizes your lips, provides high gloss shine with a cooling sensation and leaves you with minty fresh breath!
