Usually when the cooler holiday season rolls around, my lips start feeling dry and start to peel. Yuck, right? Here are 3 easy tips on keeping your lips in tiptop shape:

1. Scrub-a-dub-dub

Try exfoliating your lips once or twice a week with a gentle, soft-bristled toothbrush or a delish sugar scrub. You can concoct one yourself or use the Snoe Beso Balm Lip Sugar Polish. I prefer the latter because the tin container is so handy, I can take this anywhere with me!

2. Do not lick your lips!

You may not notice it, but we automatically lick our lips when we feel the dryness kicking in. Do avoid licking your lips as this actually removes your skin’s natural lipids. Why don’t you apply some balm instead?

3. Moisturize, moisturize

I like using natural, cold-processed lip balms because they are gentler, try Hurraw! Lip Balm in Mint or MOX Botanicals Lip Butter in Yakima Valley Peppermint. Both leave a faint minty tingle and don’t feel heavy or waxy.
