Skincare Sage | prevent chapped lips this winter

Here in the Big Apple, winter has been a roller coaster ride of wide temperature fluctuations and every kind of precipitation rain to snow and all things in between.  Not so great for the skin!

Personally, I’ve spent WAYYYYY too much money over the years on various lip treatments that have been, well, less than effective on preventing chapped lips, but these four are MORE than AMAZING:

winter-chapped-lips-treatments

1  /  2  /  3  /  4  /  5

1   Nuance Salma Hayek Hydrating Rose Petal Lip Balm    OBSESSED.  This lives on my nightstand year round.  It has a bit more grip and lasts longer than cult-favorite Smith’s Rosebud Salve ($7.50 @ CVS).

2   Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Soothing Lip Balm    A great base balm for under lipstick.  Lives in my purse.  ($5.00)

3  Reve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm   A bit pricey at $19, but a little goes a long way.

4  John Masters Organics Lip Calm    Chock full of antioxidants and rich oils.  Super value at $6 a tube!

and a bonus recommendation…

5  Weleda’s Skin Food    When the winter wind is bitterly blowing, NOTHING keeps my hands from drying out completely like Weleda’s Skin Food.  I keep a travel-sized tube in my purse at all times from November to early April.  Also WONDERFUL for hydrating new tattoos.
