Skin and hair care are topics that have been discussed extensively on the internet and in person. However, there is one subject of skin care that is often overlooked: Lip Care! The harsh and cold winter air tends to dry out one's lips, leaving them feeling chapped and prone to micro cuts which further leads to discomfort and an unruly appearance. Though we have identified this problem, how exactly does one go about treating or managing it? Let’s dive right into this relatively undiscussed topic of lip care.
Why is lip care paramount during the winter?
Dry and chapped lips are extremely common during the winter, why? Because the lips are a very delicate part of the face with no sebaceous glands, which means they are unable to produce lubricating oils that help to hydrate and comfort skin. During the winter months the cold air dries lips out and they need help to replenish the damage. This is where the number one tool to fight off dry and chapped winter lips comes into the picture: Lip Balm.
Lip balm is the go-to product for winter lip care due to its protective and nourishing properties.
It creates a barrier around your lips keeping environmental aggressors and the dry winter air at bay, ensuring your lips are moist and hydrated throughout the day. Certain lip balms with uber nourishing ingredients - such as Hemp Seed Oil - can take your lip care routine to a whole new level. It is imperative to identify and incorporate the right lip balms into your daily lip care routine for the best results.
