Beauty | Winter Lip Care.

I’ve spoken (more like whinged) about the effect Winter weather has on my skin on numerous occasion, you’re probably sick of me complaining, but today I’m going to be explaining how I try combat these damaging effects, concentrating on my lips!

Generally my lips feel the cold first, and truth be told, this year has got to be one of the worst! I felt the cold sooner and much harsher compared to previous years. Without being too gross, it feels like my lips had been replaced with sandpaper, so as I’m sure you can imagine, it didn’t make me feel too great about myself. Talking, or even smiling was difficult, which is why I went mega hands on when it came to my Winter lip care regime!

One of my favourite products to use on my lips is a scrub. The difference they make is absolutely outstanding and both scrubs I’m going to talk through today are holy grail products of mine! I usually start with the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub as it’s quite coarse and removes the vast majority of dead skin with its sugary sweet mix. It buffs and polishes the lips perfectly, leaving them feeling silky smooth and as a perfect base for any future lip products. Another favourite of mine is The Body Shop Lip Scuff which has been a constant in my life for at least a decade. It’s contains super nourishing oils, but also has peanut segments in which gently exfoliate the lips. This scrub is much gentler than the Lush offering, and is much handier for on the go, because of its’ bullet style packaging – Trust me, 9 times out of 10 I’ll have one in my handbag, I love them that much!

To add moisture back into my lips, I fully believe that The Body Shop is the way to go. I’ve got hundreds (okay that’s an exaggeration) of these little pots, whether it’s the Born Lippys or the regular tinned lip balms, you name it, I’ve tried it. Two of my favourites at the moment aren’t particularly festive, in fact they’re not festive at all, but what they are, is bloody delicious! I’ve been loving the Strawberry & Satsuma Shimmer Born Lippys because they’re easy to pop in your bag & apply on the go. They smell (and taste) pretty flipping amazing too! What’s not to love.

My lips have definitely gotten better since combating the cold with these products, they’re a little less like sandpaper now thankfully!

What’s your go to skincare product for Winter?
