Winter Beauty: Chapped Lips

Nov 13, 2013

As much as we love winter and playing in the snow, the weather outside wreaks havoc on our lips! The cold temperatures, indoor heat and lack of moisture in the air makes it even more important for you to take care to moisturize your lips more often than in the warmer months. Chapped lips are uncomfortable and unsightly but the more you take care of your lips, the less you have to worry about this winter skin woe. That being said, not all lip balms are created equal. Ever keep applying a lip balm to find that your lips are not only still chapped but somehow are getting even dryer?! That’s a telltale sign that you need to switch to something more moisturizing and soothing! Check out our gallery of the best lip balms for winter! What’s your favorite lip balm?

Lip Balm 101

If your lips are extremely chapped, you might need to exfoliate them a bit before you apply lip balm. Don’t use regular scrubs that you would use for your face - the skin on your lips is very sensitive and if you overdo the scrubbing it will take away the layer of natural oils that your lips naturally produces. If you must exfoliate, use a damp warm washcloth and gently massage your lips while they are wet. It’s not really necessary to use a specific scrub for your lips! Avoid lip balms that are waxy in texture - these are not good at moisturizing and you’ll find that you will have to reapply too often. Look for cream, petroleum-based lip balms with essential oils like almond oil, cocoa butter and shea butter. An added bonus if it has an SPF built in for extra protection.

Tinted and Flavored Lip Balms

Some of our favorite lip balms now come in a tinted version - so you get a slight hint of rose color while moisturizing your lips at the same time! It’s a good idea to stay away from lip glosses that are too heavily fragranced during the winter months as they can be very drying. Tinted lip balms are a great replacement and some of them have just as much shine as a lipgloss! Nivea now makes a cherry and a strawberry lip tint that gives the perfect rosy flush and you can’t go wrong with Korres Lip Butter which comes in 6 different shades from berry red to pale pink! Some moisturizing lip balms also come in such delicious flavors like coconut frosting, pink guava, and chocolate mint. Yum!

Two years ago my parents broke up. I was never really the same after that point. My mother she began to just not care about anything. She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting

theres this guy that i really REALLY like, im not sure if he likes me back. i put my mobile # on a piece of paper and slipped it in his locker, he hasn't texted or called me yet. Today at lunch i asked his friend to ask if he likes anyone but his friend keeps lying to me and won't tell me if he said anything. The guy and I were best friends in 5th grade but now that we're in different classes we don't talk much anymore. My friends said that i have a chance with him and that we have a lot in common, but im pretty sure he likes this other girl but im also pretty sure he likes me. I want to make a move but i don't wanna end our friendship i don't know what to do.

It's good to have both to talk too about things. But, what's the point of being with someone if you can't trust them enough to even tell them things?
