The winter months are a rough time for our skin—and even worse for our lips, which are generally not protected even by the most robust winter weather gear. The lack of humidity in the air mixed with exposure to colder, windier weather can easily damage the delicate skin of our lips, drying them out and even leaving them cracked or chapped.
Fortunately, there are lip products designed to solve issues like dry lips as well as tips anyone can follow to prevent damage. If you are building a private label skin care brand or are interested in expanding your current line, consider adding winter lip care products.
3 Best Products for Dry Lips
Are you prone to chapped lips when the weather gets cold? Keeping your lips moisturized is the best way to treat and prevent dry, cracked lips in the winter months—or any season.
The good news is there are lots of products specially formulated to hydrate lips and keep the skin moisturized, even during the most brutal time of year. Start with the basics: a hydrating lip balm, an ultra-nourishing lip mask, and a gently exfoliating lip scrub.
1. Lip Balms
Lip balms are essential for daily lip maintenance and nourishment. Look for moisturizing, non-irritating lip balms that boost hydration and stave off cracked, dry lips. Our lip treatment balm is formulated with shea butter, jojoba oil, peptides, Vitamin E, and sesame seed extract to promote smooth, voluminous lips and offer deep moisturizing benefits.
2. Lip Masks
For overnight hydration, look for lip masks. These products have thicker formulas than balms and are designed to last even longer. Apply a lip mask overnight to wake up to smooth, nourished, hydrated lips. Try our lip recovery mask, which combines coconut oil, shea butter, ceramides, Vitamin E, and sesame seed extract to condition, soothe, and regenerate lips while you sleep.
3. Lip Scrubs
Gentle exfoliation is key to healthy, hydrated skin. Lip scrubs naturally remove dead skin cells to prevent cracking and drying lips, and they also have moisturizing agents to hydrate the lips while exfoliating. Our lip sugar scrub contains sugar to slough off dry skin, bamboo stem to plump and strengthen the lips, and a mixture of hydrating ingredients like jojoba oil and shea butter to nourish the skin.
Tips to Prevent Dry, Cracked Lips in Winter
To help prevent and treat dry, cracked lips during the cold winter months, follow these tips.
Apply Lip Care Products Consistently
Lip balms, masks, and scrubs all help keep your lips moisturized and nourished. Apply these products consistently to see the maximum benefits. Lip scrubs should be used once or twice a week, lip masks should be applied overnight, and lip balms are best used several times a day.
Keeping your lips hydrated starts with overall hydration, which can be challenging to do in the cold winter months. Drink plenty of water throughout the day and eat water-rich foods to help keep your lips from chapping or cracking.
Use a Humidifier
During the winter, the indoor climate is even more dry than the outdoor atmosphere. Use a humidifier to add some much-needed moisture back into the air, which your lips and overall skin desperately require to stay healthy.
Avoid Picking, Peeling, & Licking Lips
It may be tempting, but avoid picking, peeling, or licking your lips. These actions dry them out faster and make them more chapped. If you feel the need to lick or pick at your lips, use a lip balm to hydrate them instead.
