It is a tale as old as old man winter himself: those famous Canadian winds blow in, and blow the moisture right out of our lips. Cue the dryness, irritation and chapping. Don’t go down without a fight. Here is how to battle the elements to keep your lips soft all winter long.
A gentle touch
Being exposed to the cruel elements outdoors and harsh heating indoors dries out skin, especially the delicate lip area. Hot water will further dry it out, so resist the temptation for a searing hot shower, and stick to warm temperatures that are kinder on skin.
Gentle exfoliation is important for every area of the body, don’t neglect lips! You can use your damp toothbrush, or washcloth to gently buff your lips.
Don’t forget your SPF
Don’t let that blue sky fool you: the sun’s rays can still do their worst in the winter months. Be sure that your lip product contains SPF. New Blistex Soft & Lush treats lips to a deeper level of softness and hydration with a super creamy, ceramide-enriched formula enriched with SPF 15.
Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids are lauded for their health benefits, including their ability to nourish skin by maintaining the health of cell membranes. Healthy cell membranes mean softer, plumper skin. Eat omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods like walnuts, flaxseed, salmon and tuna.
