3 Ways to Care for Your Lips This Fall
Don't let your lips dry out like the fallen leaves of autumn. With proper care, you can have healthy, soft lips year-round. Follow our top 4 ways for keeping chapped and cracked lips a thing of the past.
1. Keep Your Lips Hydrated
Drinking enough liquids in the colder months can be a challenge. Supplement with warm teas and skip the ice in your water to keep warm as you maintain hydration.
Drinking water isn't the only thing that will keep your lips hydrated this fall. Use a natural lip balm or moisturizer throughout the day to protect your lips from wind and dry air. It is also important to moisturize your lips before bed. Oxygenetix Hydro Matrix is safe and effective for lip hydration. The aloe vera base keeps chapped lips soothed while PCA and Hyaluronic Acid plump and moisturize.
2. Don't Lick Your Lips
When dry autumn air begins chapping your lips, avoid licking them at all costs. Although licking your lips offers instant relief, the saliva evaporates quickly causing chapped lips. Additionally, the enzymes in saliva are too harsh for the delicate skin on our lips which can create sensitivity.
3. Scrub Lips With Sugar
Exfoliate your lips every week to keep them smooth and rosy. Scrubbing with a mixture of honey and sugar is a yummy natural way to exfoliate.
4. Use an SPF
This next tip is important year-round, regardless of the temperature. Lips are made of delicate tissue that is sensitive to UVA and UVB rays. Use a lip balm with an SPF to protect from the sun, especially for winter sports like skiing and snowboarding where the sun's reflection on the snow magnifies the rays.
Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation with SPF 30 can act as great protection for your lips. Apply a lip color on top of the foundation base for a vibrant touch.
