Winter weather is never a good thing for the lips. Harsh cold weather causes dryness, redness and even painful lips. The temperature has dropped vastly, and we are on a quick flash-forward to frosty winter days. According to AccuWeather.com, Las Vegas will reach a low of 35-38 degrees this season!
It is very important to fight the freeze and protect your lips. The skin of the lips is one of the thinnest skins on our body, and it can easily dry and crack. It also has very few oil glands to keep them lubricated and moisturized, so it is important to keep them protected. Luckily, LipSense products provides 100% mechanical shield to protect your lips. Here are some products and tips to help prevent chapped, cracked and dry lips.
Avoid licking your lips
Licking your lips causes dry and cracked lips. The enzymes and bacteria in saliva can cause moisture loss, and leave your lips drier than before. Using any lip color, lip balm or moisturizer can help suppress your urge to lick your lips. (LipSource)
Use moisturizing lip balms daily
Using lip balms daily can keep moisture from escaping, and help alleviate dry and damaged lips. A great product to do this is LipSense Moisturizing Lip Balm. It delivers much needed moisture, and it contains a botanical rich formula that helps bind hydration to your lips. LipSense Lip Balm even is anti-aging and men love it too! My husband is an umpire for baseball, and is out in the elements all the time. If it wasn't for LipSense Moisturizing Lip Balm his lips would be a mess and it keeps him from getting cold sores too!
Use any LipSense lip color to prevent chapping
LipSense lip color can also protect your lips against wind, cold and sun. The propriety formulations and color pigments in LipSense lip color help create a mechanical covering for the lips...It's like wearing clothes on your lips! Using lip color such as Nutmeg, Apple Cider, Blue-Red or Gold Champagne LipSense, are good products to use to fight the freeze and even boost your holiday spirit! Now you can match your favorite holiday treat or drink, with these LipSense lip colors!
Brush away dead skin cells
Scrub your lips very gently with a toothbrush to remove dead skin cells. Then after brushing your teeth at night, apply any LipSense moisturizer. This will help heal and prevent chapped lips.
Drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated
Drink plenty of water to keep your body and your lips hydrated this holiday season! Some of the greatest things about this time of year are the parties, the drinks and the holiday treats-but it’s very important to watch your intake of highly sugared food and beverages. Not enough water can make you dehydrated, causing your lips to dry. (Speaking of holiday parties - be sure to save the date on November 20, 2014. I will be throwing a Multi-Vendor Holiday Boutique Party!)
