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.
My 4 Tips for Perfect Winter Lips
PROTECT & COLOR! Now that your lips are in fabulous condition, make them shine! These three options from Burt’s Bees color and protect your lips – choose the coverage you like! TINT: My go-to is Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm, which is available in 6 colors (mine color is Rose). It protects your lips from the environment with Shea Butter and Botanical Waxes plus its sheer coverage gives me just the right amount of color. It goes on easy and looks great. 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. SATIN: New Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lipsticks are available in 14 full-coverage colors from pale pink Iced Iris to intense Juniper Water in a skin-flattering and age-defying satin finish. 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. The Moringa Oil’s essential fatty acids help to soften and condition your lips while the Raspberry Seed Oil improves your lip’s elasticity. Even the packaging is recyclable, so it’s better for the environment! My color is Sunset Cruise.
Now that I’ve tried this new Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lipstick it’s my new favorite! The satin finish is exactly what this ahem…older women needs. It’s flattering and adds color that’s perfect for day or nighttime and from casual to elegant. Rush out and pick up this new 8 hour Natural Lipstick – I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do and it’s available in a wide variety of colors for every skin tone and occasion, plus it retails for a very reasonable $9.99!
Why do I recommend Burt’s Bees lip products? That’s an easy question! It’s because they’re made from a short list of ingredients that I can identify. 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
