One of the most important parts of pulling off a perfect bold lip is making sure that your lips are smooth and healthy. Otherwise you end up with flaky, dried out lipstick patches all over your lips, and nothing could be less cute. Also, having smooth lips helps the lipstick application stay on longer- so this is a win- win. It’s been especially hard for me this Winter, my lips feel like they’re transforming into a small reptile skin, so I went on a hunt to find the best lip balms to combat this nasty dry weather. Here are four favorites:
All four products above are exceptional- my favorites are the cult favorite Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment and the totally affordable Blistex Lip Medex, but the other two are great as well! If you want smooth, healthy winter lips and you’re wondering why your lipstick flakes off while you’re wearing it, then go pick up one of these lip treatments and watch your lips transform.
P.s. another tip: when you’re brushing your teeth in the morning, brush your lips as well- it’s a great exfoliant to help get off the dead skin.
