8 Essential Winter Lip Care Tips

8 Essential Winter Lip Care Tips

As the cold temperatures and dry winter air set in, our lips face unique challenges. Keeping your lips hydrated is the key to ensuring their health, especially in the winter months. Unlike other areas of the skin, your lips lack oil and sweat glands, making them susceptible to dryness, winter chapped lips and the discomfort of chapping, peeling and cracking lips. Here’s Mov&More top tips to protect your lips from cold, dry winter weather.

1. Use Lip Care Products

Choose lip balms that offer intense hydration and incorporate SPF protection to shield your lips from the harmful effects of sun exposure. Steer clear of products containing Petrolatum, Menthol, camphor, or salicylic acid, as well as those with added fragrances, which can be irritating. Instead, opt for lip balms enriched with nourishing ingredients to counteract the drying effects of winter, ensuring your lips stay soft, smooth, and well-protected throughout the season.

2. Exfoliate for Smoothness

To achieve and maintain healthy, hydrated lips, incorporate a high-quality lip scrub into your routine as needed. This will effectively eliminate dead skin cells and enhance hydration. However, avoid over-exfoliation; limit the process to no more than twice a week.

3. Moisturise and Protect

Finish your lip care routine by applying a moisturising lip balm containing SPF. This not only locks in moisture but also shields your lips from potential sun damage, crucial even in the winter.

4. Stay Hydrated

Consume an ample amount of water daily to maintain overall hydration. Incorporate fruits, vegetables, and snacks rich in vitamins and nutrients into your meals.  Staying hydrated is as important in winter as in any other season. 

5. Avoid Licking Your Lips

Resist the urge to lick your lips, especially in dry conditions. While it might seem like a quick fix, the dry air swiftly evaporates the moisture left by saliva, leaving your lips even drier. Prefer a soothing lip balm whenever the temptation arises.

6. Don't Peel Off Your Lips

Avoid picking or peeling your lips, as it can lead to bleeding, blisters, and eventual scarring. Let your lips heal naturally to maintain their smooth and healthy appearance.

7. Never Skip Sun Protection

Even if a coat or gloves cover your face, remember that your lips are still exposed to the sun's rays. Don't neglect sun protection—use lip balms with SPF to shield your lips from potential damage caused by UV rays.
