Even though the harsh, dry winter air is becoming a distant memory, my lips still tend to get a little parched. Maybe it’s because I need to fill up my water bottle more often, or because I’m a chronic chatterbox, but, in any case, I rarely leave the house without a lip balm in my pocket.
The delicate skin on your lips really does need a little extra TLC. You spend lots of time protecting your face, hands, and body, so why not take a minute to put your money where your mouth is? Here are a few of my faves that I always have on hand (or lips!).
Blistex has been in the business of lip-care for 63 years. One of their latest breakthroughs is their Deep Renewal lip protectant (Walmart.com, $6.36). Touting the super-powers of skin renewing coenzyme Q10 to help renew skin, “hyaluronnic spheres” to fill fine lines, and SPF 15, this really is one of the best bargains you can buy that really keeps you kissably soft and smooth.
Yes to Carrots C Me Smile lip butters (Drugstore.com, $3.69) are naturally nourishing. It’s impossible not to be happy with their five fruity flavors, a cruelty and chemical free promise, and super cheery packaging. They are also loaded with free radical fighter beta carotene and SPF 15 to keep wrinkles at bay.
So go ahead and pucker up! Smooth, lucious, and loved lips are always in season.
