Lip gloss doesn't heal dry lips!

Skincare should be a regular part of your healthy lifestyle.

Did you know that lip gloss does not heal your dry lips?
Wintertime not only brings cold weather and snow, it also brings chapped lips!

Treating chapped lips can be tricky. Although a recent study found that almost 60% of women 35-44 reported wearing lip gloss daily, layering on gloss won’t help cure dry, flaky lips. 

Lip gloss is primarily a cosmetic, designed to colour lips and add shine. While most formulas might temporarily help soothe and disguise dry lips, they aren’t formulated to improve the quality of lips over time.
Most important when you’re battling dry lips is to resist licking and picking the area, which will only make matters worse. 
Instead, gently exfoliate your lips with a conditioning product to remove dead skin cells. It helps removes dead skin cells and exfoliates flaky lip tissues in just a few swipes.
After exfoliating, use a balm that contains lipid molecules, antioxidants and dimethicone to improve skin, lock in moisture and protect the delicate moisture barrier.

Most importantly, select a balm that contains broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect against UVA and UVB rays.

Do this regularly and your "pucker" will be kiss-able all winter long!

...and remember, a healthy lifestyle includes skincare
