Tips for healthy lips

Tips for healthy lips.

Winter can be tough on lips. The cold weather, strong winds and dry air can all contribute to lip irritation. We recommend using Carmex® lip care to help relieve dry lips. But there are more steps you can take as well to keep comfy throughout winter.

Doctor’s Orders
Water, water, water. Almost every aspect of health can be improved through proper hydration, and your lips are no different. So make sure to drink up, all day long.

Don’t Lick Your Lips
Like the title says. Licking your lips draws out moisture and only makes the problem worse. Rely on Carmex® Classic lip balm to soothe and moisturize instead!

Keep Your Face Covered
Especially during winter and windy days, don’t leave the house without a scarf to give your lips an extra layer of protection. Not that you needed another reason to show off your new wrap.

Be Wary of Shiny Lipsticks
Lipsticks that are shiny or contain high gloss with little-to-no color can be potentially harmful to lips because they can attract UV rays. Try a triple-layer approach for added protection: apply a lip balm with SPF — such as Carmex Daily Care® — followed by a colored lipstick, then finish it off with some shine. Your lips will look lovely AND healthy.

Use a Humidifier
Dryness is the enemy. Keep your skin and lips fresh no matter the season with this simple solution.

Healthy Habits
What you eat can have an effect on your skin. Fruits and veggies high in Omega-3 help restore elasticity and keep lips looking youthful. In particular, we recommend cranberries.
