How to Winterize Your Lips
You wouldn’t let your precious car go without a winter tuneup. So why let your lips take a beating from blowing winds and cooler temperatures.
Here are some tips to make sure you can easily wear the hottest lip colors of the season.
Even if you discover the perfect shade of lipstick or gloss, you won’t be able to show it off if your lips are full of flakes. An easy way to exfoliate your lips is to use a wet toothbrush or cloth. Gently brush or wipe your lips to remove the dead skin cells. Follow with a lip balm to soothe and moisturize your lips.
Choose an Emollient Lip Balm for Super Dry Lips
If painfully chapped lips sneak up on you every winter, choose a lip balm with ingredients that can quickly penetrate cracks with long lasting moisture restoring qualities.

Wear Lip Balm Under Lipstick or Gloss
If you can’t imagine giving up your favorite lipstick or gloss over the winter, try applying a lightweight lip balm first. The lip balm will moisturize your lips and help make the color last longer.
