I love putting on lip balm. There is something luxurious about moving a pretty, juicy-smelling moisturizing balm across my lips. Yeah, I probably overdue it, but so what? They aren’t very expensive, They are so healing and fun.
Most importantly, lip balms keep lips soft, moist and protects them from the insult of cold dry weather. Dry, chapped lips are awful. They are uncomfortable, painful and don’t look good with or without lipstick.
Every night I apply lip balm before bed. During the day, whenever I have the opportunity, I apply a juicy moisture balm. During moderate weather, I will use a soft, moisture balm with glycerim to add moisture and oils to lock it in. I harsh winter weahter, I use thicker, balms, with beeswax and oils to apply a thicker barrier between the elements and my lips.
My lips stay comfortable throughout the winter and always look plump and healthy.
