09 Dec How to Avoid Dry Lips this Winter
Reading time: 5 minutes
Do you ever find yourself wondering why your lips are so incredibly dry?
That is because you’re not taking care of your lips the right way during the cold winter season.
If you want to hydrate your chapped lips, keep reading to find out what you need to do ASAP.
What to do to hydrate your lips ?
First thing you want to do is exfoliate your lips. Doing a quick scrub will allow you to remove the dead skin and expose the part of your lips that are ready for hydration.
Next, you want to apply your favourite lip balm onto your lips. I personally love the Burt’s Bees lip balms.
They are the best on the market for a few reasons.
The things I love about this product?
I love how hydrating the formula is on the lips. I also love how long lasting it is and how clean the ingredients are in a Burt’s Bees lip balm.
Burt’s Bees peppermint lip balm (the original formula) is only made of the following ingredients: beeswax, coconut oil, sunflower seed oil, peppermint oil, rosemary leaf extract, soybean oil, canola oil and limonene.
Not to mention, I love how accessible they are. You can buy them at any pharmacy or beauty supply store. You can even find them in health food stores and online.
Here’s a video on how Burt’s Bees lip balms are made:
The things I dislike about this product?
Although I swear by this lip balm and really haven’t found one better in the last few years, the more you apply it, the more your lips crave it.
It’s like your Burt’s Bees becomes an addiction to your lips. Keep in mind that this only happens if you’re over applying the product on your lips when you first start to use it.
If you use the lip balm whenever necessary only, then you will not get addicted to the sensation on your lips, and your lips will not get dry as quickly.
How to use Burt’s Bees?
Just like any other lip balm, Burt’s Bees is applied on the lips whenever you feel your lips are getting dry.
You can however, get creative and apply it on small dry spots on your body too. The product is hydrating as a whole, so feel free to apply it as you wish.
Personally, I only use it on my lips.
What does it cost?
I’m not going to lie to you, Burt’s Bees lip balm is expensive. However, the quality of the item justifies its price.
Each individual lip balm retails for around $3 at the drugstore. You can save some money by buying a pack of 3 at a time, which retails for around $10.
Keep in mind that anything natural and made of clean, quality ingredients like honey or beeswax, will cost you more, as these products are expensive to make.
Still skeptical about trying this product?
Don’t be! It’s a lip balm. Worst comes to worst, you don’t like how it feels on your lips.
However, do yourself a favour and test out this product.
I promise it is a game changer when it comes to hydrating lip balms on the market! I’ve been using it for the last 5 years and truly have not found a better lip balm.
