Winter is not my favourite season. It dries out my already very dry skin and generally causes chapped lips that are very painful (and not attractive). The winter cold is not the only thing that dries your lips out but there are other contributing factors. You may be a licker and biter like me. FYI, that is totally horrible for your lips! Touching your lips, or general dehydration can also cause them to crack.  Your favourite lipstick could also be damaging your lips, so be weary of the lipstick you apply.


Here are 4 affordable lip care products will heal your chapped winter lips in no time:

1 Lipsano SPF30 Lip Care

The OG Lipsano! Wow! I remember when the little tub of Lisano lip care started trending when I was in grade 8. Every girl in my school had it, literally it was fashion! This Lip balm contains 5 natural moisturisers – vitamin e, cocoa butter, lanolin, beeswax and shae butter. So you can just imagine how it soothes and protects the lips.

2 The Body Shop Hemp Lip Conditioner

We all should just realise the healing power of hemp already! Cannabis can be used for various medical conditions such as wound healing both externally and internally. The Body shop has a hamp range and it includes a lip conditioner, and it is especially formulated for dry chapped lips and offers intense moisture. It’s also dermatologically tested.

In Eucerin we trust! Eucerin Intensive Lip Balm offers a highly effective formula to heal chapped skin. It includes licochalcone that will calm your dry lips and the pathenol and primrose oil will nourish your lips.

And finally, you might be having a night out with a full face of makeup. There’s nothing worse than having chapped lips and applying lipstick. Don’t do it to yourself, it will just make your lips hurt even more. A great product recommendation would be Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil. The lip oil will top off any makeup look perfectly, and it will comfort your lips perfectly.
