Avoid Chapped Lips with these 4 Types of Lip Products
Weather can take a toll on your lips! Ouch! Summer can burn your lips. While, Winter is brutal with the cold and dryness meaning chapped and cracked lips if you don’t take preventative measures! After suffering year after year I headed to Sephora and the mall to checked out what I could do to prevent last years mistakes. There’s a few different products you should be using for your lips including lip scrub, chap stick or lip masks, and lip serum.

Scrubs are amazing for exfoliating your lips and leaving them silky and smooth. I normally use mine in the shower, but if you find a good tasting one like I mention below then its perfect for on the go! With lip care, I always start off with doing a lip scrub first.
This Whipped Cherry Bite lip scrub helps exfoliate and condition your lips. It smells wonderful and taste great as well, but is not intended to be swallowed. I take about a teaspoon of the scrub and put it on my lips. I apply it while I am in the shower so that it is easy to rinse off. You can either rub the scrub in with your finger or you can rub your top and bottom lips together move the tiny beads around and exfoliate. I really like the tiny container that this product comes in and the smooth black top. The only thing I have not liked about this product is that the beads are not as prevalent when I apply it to my lips. I would definitely recommend trying this lip scrub. You can check it out here.

Lush Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub
Let me just say wow this stuff is tasty!! Which makes it so you can apply it out of the shower on the go! It’s like sugar and it has all the exfoliant that you could possibly want! You can even see in the picture how exfoliant it is. It was sold out three times when I went to the store near me, it is that good!! If you don’t have a lush store around you, you can grab some from LushUSA site or Amazon.

Chapstick is the next line of defense against windy winter or sunburned lips. It has a thicker texture to it and really aims to moisturize your lips and stays on your lips to protect them with a thin layer of gloss.
Bite agave lip mask
Bite agave lip mask is so great I bought it in all three colors: Smashed, Champagne , and Natural. The reason it is so great is that it is a super thick and moisturizing formula that you leave on your lips. It is a Sephora exclusive so you can grab some for $26 each from Sephora .

Medicated Lip Balms
Furthermore to protect your lips, I would also suggest using Medicated Lip Balm! You shouldn’t apply this more than 4-5 times a day but it really seals in the moisture and helps protect your lips against sunburn and the cold weather. It is also handy to have around incase you forget to apply lip care one day and are left with chapped lips. I really like Blixtex Medicated Lip Balm here and also Eos Medicated Lip Balm here . I like how it makes your lips feel chilled which can be relieving when your lips are soar from being cracked.
Lip Serums help to super moisturize your lips making them super smooth. This is just like using oils for your hair vs conditioner, except it is for your lips and its serum vs chap stick.
