Five Dry Lip Balms You Need This Fall
All of a sudden mornings are chilly and the sun still shines. This is not a good combination for keeping your lips soft and silky. Your lips are all rough and when you press them together to smooth them out, you find them to be peeling and quickly look through your purse for dry lip balm.
Having your go-to lip balm during the fall and winter months is crucial. When you apply lip balm regularly during the change of summer to fall, your lips stay moisturized and rarely get chapped. If they are chapped, it is probably because you have been using only lipstick and not lip balm.
Just because you wear lipstick to work does not mean you cannot apply your lip balm underneath or that when your lipstick has worn off that you should not reapply your lip balm. It is especially important to apply lip balm after you have brushed your teeth so that the toothpaste and mouth rinse will not make your lips more chapped.
As long as you apply lip balm three times a day, your lips will always be well taken care of.
Below are the five best lip balms that your lips could really have a long lasting relationship with. They won’t disappoint:
Yes to Coconut Naturally Smooth Lip Balm is my favorite because not only does it taste like coconut, but it lasts virtually all day because of the natural coconut oils in it. Your lips will not ever be chapped when you use this lip balm.
Aquaphor Lip Repair is the heavy-duty lip balm. It will repair severely chapped lips within days. It includes shea butter and chamomile, which helps those cracks close right up with repeated use.
Smith’s Rosebud Salve is a balm that has a rose taste to it with a smell that makes you want to keep applying and applying, which is not a bad thing since it moisturizes your lips really well and can also be used on minor burns to lessen the sting. Use this one throughout the fall before your lips get chapped.
If your lips get chapped easily due to the sun’s rays along with the wind and changing weather, then you will need a lip balm with a high SPF. Supergoop! Acai Fusion does just the trick with its SPF 30 that will protect your pout from further damage.
The last but certainly not least lip balm that you should definitely have in your purse this season is the good old ChapStick brand that you know and love, which now comes in many different flavors in addition to the original. ChapStick Peppermint Candy Cane offers just enough peppermint sting to keep you wanting more with a hint of sweet that actually makes you feel like you are eating a peppermint candy.
