I always feel like my lips are chapped, dry, flaky... always. But what can you do in these especially dry seasons to help combat this issue?
Step One, don't overdo it! The one thing many don't realize when applying chap stick, etc is that the more you apply, the less your skin creates natural moisture. A few products I really like that create a nice moisture barrier are Soothing Touch Peppermint Lip Balm. I put this on maybe once a day instead of 5-6 times like most others. I also really love the Bioelements Instant Emollient.
Step Two, Exfoliate! Your lips are just like any other parts of your skin and they need exfoliation. There are a lot of great products out there for this such as Bioelements Lip Buff. Another product that can help from the inside out is the Dermalogica AGEsmart Renewal Lip Complex. It not only moisturizes but help with smoothing fine lines on and around your lips. The results are amazing.
Step Three... Protect. Try to always look for a lip moisturizer like the Brave Soldier Lip Defender. Another good one is by gloMinerals called the Mint Balm (spf 15). The sun and other environmental effects can really wreak havoc on the thin sensitive skin on and around your lips.
Whatever you choose to use, don't apply too much or too frequently and your lips should be soft, smooth and moisturized in no time. You can find these great products and many more at www.BeautyStoreDepot.com.
