I have a really bad problem with chapped lips, especially during the colder months. So I wanted to share with you all what I do to keep my lips moisturized. This is especially important if you like to wear lipstick. If your lips are chapped and you apply lipstick it will cling to any cracks or dry skin.
Rosebud Salve // Lip Butter // Créme de Rose // Agave Lip Treatment
For my everyday routine if I am not wearing a lipstick I like to have a moisturizing balm. I prefer ones with a tint of color so that my lips aren’t blank but are still being moisturized. The Rosebud Salve is fairly cheap and works extremely well with a light tint of color. The Korres Lip Butter is my favorite because it comes in a lot of shades and smells. The Créme de Rose by Dior is more on the expensive side but is extremely hydrating and will last a long time. The Bite Agave Lip Treatment is a champagne tinted version of the original treatment. This makes it more wearable for the day and it is probably the most repairing of all the ones mentioned.
Santa’s Lip Scrub // Lip Polish // Sugar Lip Scrub // Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub
It is really important to use a lip scrub. You can even make them yourself with some sugar and peppermint oil. Using a lip scrub helps to remove the flaky skin and smooth out any cracks. You just have to remember to not over scrub, especially if your lips are sensitive. I use a lip scrub every other night and then apply a heavy balm after to sleep in.
Lip Balm // Argan Lip Treatment // Ultra Repair Lip Therapy // Agave Lip Mask
This is probably the most important step if you are suffering from severe chapped lips. Applying a thick lip treatment at night and before you go to sleep will help to heal your lips. While you are asleep you won’t be wearing off the balm as quickly as you would during the day from talking and eating. This gives it time to sink in and really help.
