Winter is rough on our bodies. Every exposed body part takes a hit from the cold, and there are just not enough hours in the day to winterize every part of your body. But, your lips are part of what people identify you by, and you don’t want to become known as “that girl with the really chapped lips.” So there are a few things you can do to keep your lips soft, moist, and looking great with the added benefit of not dealing with the pain of dry lips. Adding a few minutes each week to exfoliate and moisturize your lips will do wonders for how they look and feel.

STOP BAD HABITS & USING DRYING PRODUCTS: The first step to better lips is to stop the activities you’re doing that are adding to your problems. Chewing off your dry skin can lead to bleeding and sores so stop that! Slow down on the lip licking as well, it too can result in problems. So can using lip products that contain drying chemicals like preservatives that irritate your delicate lip area. And stop touching your lips – you’re introducing bacteria into that broken skin – that’s a recipe for an infection!

EXFOLIATE: Use a gentle exfoliant like Burt’s Bees Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub to lift off dead skin.  It uses exfoliating crystals mixed with Pomegranate Oil, Cranberry Seed, and Shea Butter to polish and condition your lips and body. Use it in the shower applying a teaspoon or so and gently scrub your lips. Let it remain in place for 5 minutes while you enjoy the scent and moisturizing effects. Rinse it off and wipe dry with a towel. Should you accidently get a taste of it, you’ll find it’s yummy.

SHIMMER: Want a little more shine? Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer is the one for you. Lots of color and shine. You’ll need a mirror for a perfect application and it’s a bit stickier, but you’re rewarded with long wearing color and softness. Shea Butter and antioxidant-rich Fruit Oils moisturize while its peppermint flavor smells and tastes great. Available in 14 shades. My color is Fig.

This 8-hour, moisturizing lipstick is made with 100% natural ingredients like Moringa Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, Beeswax, Vitamin E that work together to create a creamy and lightweight lipstick.

Plus they’re readily available in supermarkets, drugstores, online, and the new 8 Hour lipstick is available at Target and Target.com. Plus they’re so affordable and made from ingredients my skin loves. Have you tried the new Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lipstick
