Chapped Lips

Over the past week or so the weather has turned from pleasant, warm Fall breeze to it feels like it could be snowing. This crazy annoying fluctuation is not fun for your whole body. It's when most colds come on, allergies spike up, and worst of all your lips get chapped! I wanted to share my favorite few chapsticks/ lip systems to keep your mouth from cracking and bleeding this Fall/ Winter.

#1 Softlips Mint
I have been using this stuff since middle school. It is not tinted, just clear. * NOTE if you get the tinted kind they are usually FULL of sparkles, something I find not so fun to have on chapped lips* You put it on and instantly your lips tingle and feel minty. After a few minutes all the rough dead skin on your lips feels like it has melted away and your lips are super soft. You can buy this stuff for about $3.50 at most food and drug stores.

#2 Mary Kay Satin Lips System
This was a gift from my aunt who was a MK consultant a few years ago and I LOVE IT. It is a very easy two step system! Step 1- wet your lips and use the exfoliating lip mask. This gently scrubs off the dead skin and leaves your lips feeling like a baby's butt! Step 2 - apply the lip balm to have smooth protected lips all day long! This kit is $18 on the Mary Kay website and I make sure I buy one every winter.

#3 Carmex
Oh Carmex... you are so delightfully cheap! I always keep Carmax in my car and purse. This stuff is like magic in a tiny jar. It numbs sore lips, heals and even protects from the sun & wind. These little jars are about $2 and can be found everywhere... seriously... even at those creepy walk up gas stations where you have to pay the big scary man through the window... Carmex is TOTALLY hanging behind the big scary man!!

#4 Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm
Burt's Bees is just all around amazing but this Honey Lip Balm is the B.O.M.B. not only does it taste good but it lasts long and nourishes your lips. This my friends, is chap stick done right. Also it's only a whopping $3 and can be found at most drug stores. * Note, you will probably want to look with the Burt's Bees products, it is rarely with the regular balm *

Enjoy & Happy Fall :)
