With winter comes the dry lips and the harsh winds. So how can you make sure that the terror that the night is full of isn’t dry skin? Here are a few tips!
1. Get yourself a Toner.
Everyone needs a toner. Toners help restore the pH balance to your skin, as well as provide an extra barrier to your skin. They are also really gentle exfoliates and will cleanse the pores without being too harsh. We have a diverse selection of toners, currently our favorite is either the Pumpkin Rinse by Rhonda Allison or the Lotus Flower Ginseng Toner if your skin gets really dry. Speaking of exfoliates…
2. Exfoliate those lips.
Rub a scrub on your lips at night to help combat the characteristic dry and cracking lips of Winter time. You can make yourself a cheap scrub if you are short on cash, but we sell an amazing scrub, eb Fine Polish, that will not only get rid of your dead and flaky skin but leave your skin happy and fresh. It is easy to use and isn’t sticky or rough like many homemade scrubs are.
3. Treat yo lips.
We always advocate treating yourself with the greatest of love and care. That is why we sell lip treatment. Lip treatment will moisturize your lips and keep them hydrated. You can wear it at night before bed or put it on before you put your lips on. It has avocado oil to moisture the skin and doesn’t have the after effect of drying your lips out even more like many lip balms.
4. Moisturize your face.
If you have especially dry skin get a moisturizer. We sell many different moisturizers, and it really depends on what type of skin problems you are experiencing so if you aren’t sure what type of skin you have contact us and we will find what would work best for you. You will generally want to moisturize your face after the rest of your skin care regiment. In the winter, you may want to moisturize in the morning before you brave the elements just for an extra layer of hydration.
5. Drink H2O
Lastly don’t forget to drink enough water to stay hydrated. Just because it isn’t burning hot outside doesn’t mean your body needs less water. So drink up and keep those lips silky smooth.
We would also like to add that these tips are gender neutral, meaning if you have a male that you are lip locking with that is less than pleasant due to dry chapped lips, show him the ways of hydration. The both of you will appreciate it.
