Imagine this: Outside, the cold is raging. Inside, the heaters are turned up. Getting cozy is what counts, but the costs are our lips! The result: dried out lips. So what can we possibly do to get them all moistured and soft again? Rehydration isn't that easy but we'll help you find the best products and natural treatments that will bring back your tenderness.
No matter how tempting it is, don't wet your lips! Saliva removes their natural protection and makes the problem worse rather than better.
Applying the first lipstick you can find? Another bad idea: avoid conventional balms that contain mineral oils, kerosene, and petroleum derivatives. They may seem to soothe your lips, but the effect is temporary. Not only are these ingredients polluting, they are also blocking the skin from being moisturized.
Chapped lips can hurt or even bleed in case of severe dryness. Above all that, they don't look very appealing either. Naturally fragile, they do not withstand natural damage caused by cold air or heat from radiators. Their skin is extra thin and they do not have sebaceous glands which usually play a key role in the hydration of the skin.
In order to overcome those problems, it is helpful to use appropriate care products, enriched with oils and plant-based butters or beeswax. Formulated without mineral oil, all our lip care products intensely rehydrate the lips and make you smile again. In neutral tones or rich colors - they'll become a natural part of your daily care routine!
Another tip: gently exfoliate your lips with a special scrub to soften them and reinforce the benefits of the balm you will use next, as it will then act more in-depth rather than moisturizing the dead skin.
Honey works wonders! It's an absolute miracle ingredient against dry lips. Containing minerals, amino acids, proteins and enzymes it ensures 100% of natural hydration. Get any kind of liquid honey and try applying a thick layer on your lips. Leave it on for a few minutes, then rinse with warm water. For even more effectiveness, you can even leave it on overnight. Your lips will be moisturized to their max!
