Winter is here and bringing dry, brittle, colder temperatures along with it. When out in the fridge-like temperatures, our lips are likely to take a bit of a bruising.
Because the skin on our lips is more delicate than in other places on our bodies, it's more prone to experience chapping, excessive peeling, and even splitting. We have to give them the special care and attention they deserve.
Lip care starts with the proper procedures of cleansing, hydration, protection, and the occasional exfoliating, all of which are often overlooked and easily neglected.
So when out shopping for holiday deals, gifts, and treats, don’t skip out on the beauty essentials of lip care.
I took the liberty of rounding up some awesome lip treats that are sure to keep our lips soft, subtle, and smooth.
Checkout out my kissable lip treats below:
