The frigid temperatures and dry air of winter can take a heavy a toll on your lips. If you’re anything like me, you’re obsessed with lip balm. I, honest to goodness, have a near panic attack if I don’t have lip balm on me at all times.
With lip balm, just like any other cosmetic you wear on your lips, you want to make sure it’s not just going to keep your lips moisturized, but heal any damage that’s been done by the weather, the sun, or any other activities you may have indulged in of late. Plus, you want to make sure it’s not made of anything gross, since, let’s face it, you’re going to end up ingesting it over the course of the day, with eating, drinking and what not.
Having an everyday lip balm that can be used morning, noon and night is always a good idea. Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm comes in an adorable tin that’s perfectly pocket sized. All natural and safe to use even on your little ones, this is a great all-around lip balm that even the pickiest lip balm aficionado, like myself, will love.
For those Bombshell snow bunnies out there, you need to make sure your lip care products have a good amount of SPF in them to keep your lips from being both wind and sun damaged. Alba Un-Petroleum Lip Balm is a soy-based, all-natural and cruelty-free lip balm that comes in great flavors such as tangerine, cherry and vanilla. It’s also packed with the sun protection of SPF 18, so you’ve covered all your bases for your winter outdoor adventures.
And if you like to add a little pop to your look throughout the day, but are still plagued with the threat of dry and cracked lips, get the best of both worlds with Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer. It provides all the protection of their classic lip balm and is available in over a dozen gorgeous colors. Small and compact, these balms fit into the cutest clutch or the tiniest pocket, making them the perfect holiday party companion.
Pop a couple of these in your purse, in your diaper bag and I even recommend keeping one in the cup holder in your car.That way, you’re never without your trusty lip balm (no panic attack necessary) and you’ll have kissable lips all winter long.
