Prepare yourself for the bitter cold soon. One of the main beauty issues most of us face is dry chapped lips. Dry cracked lips can be very painful, not to mention can make your favorite lipstick or gloss into a flaky mess.



Here are a few quick tips and recommendations to keep those winter blues away.

Philosophy Cosmetics makes a great lip exfoliate called “Kiss Me Exfoliating Lip Scrub.” This lip scrub keeps the lips smooth all throughout winter.

How to use: Add a small drop on finger, rub gently into lips for a few minutes and then remove with a tissue or washcloth.

Now that your lips are baby smooth again, let us keep them from getting dry and cracked again by using a lip moisturizer after.

“Treatment,” by Face Stockholm is a daily lip moisturizer with Vitamin E. Just using this throughout the day will keep those lips looking great all through winter.

How to use: Just apply directly to lip when needed, it is best used under your lip products. For best results, use it after your lip scrub.
