During this time of year, you may notice your skin and lips feeling extra dry, flaky or irritated. Especially if you’re spending a lot of time outside whether you’re commuting or shoveling snow, it’s extremely important to make sure your skin stays hydrated and healthy. During the wintertime when the air is cold and dry, your skin might need some extra help locking in moisture. Here are some of our favorite products for all-over hydration!
For a nourishing and hydrating lip mask to prevent your lips from being dry and flaky all day, opt for Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask. This product even made it on Allure’s Best of Beauty List in 2019. We will NOT be settling for crusty lips in 2021!
If you’re looking for a reliable treatment for chapped lips, Aquaphor is never a miss. While this is a great lip product, it’s also great for your cuticles and heels.
