Winter is on its way, which means it’s almost dry lips season. Your lips are the most likely part of your face to feel the effects of dry weather. Dry skin in the winter happens when you’re exposed to less humid weather than in the summer. It’s important to show your lips a little extra love during the colder months of the year, so this is how you can help your lips to feel more freshly rejuvenated this winter, and how to prevent dry lips.
Use a Lip Balm
During the winter you’re going to want to use a lip balm regularly. We love our Hanalei Kukui Lip Balm for this, because it has kukui nut oil in it, which is a natural Hawaiian botanical that’s known as a fantastic lightweight moisturizer. If you’re a person who loves winter sports, and will be in the sun a lot, we even carry a lip balm with SPF 15, so that you can protect your lips while enjoying the snow.
When it comes to lip care, exfoliation is super important. This helps you to remove all the dry and dead skin on your lips, and make room for any hydration you might be needing. We love our Sugar Lip Scrub for exfoliating your lips. It contains Hawaiian Cane Sugar for exfoliation and Kukui Nut Oil for added hydration.
Try a Lip Treatment
If your lips are really feeling dry, it might be a good idea to try a Lip Treatment. Our Lip Treatments use Kukui Nut Oil to create a leave-on lip treatment that you can use overnight, or during the day in place of lip gloss. We have a clear Lip Treatment, as well as tinted Lip Treatments in a multitude of colors, so you can pair it with any look you truly love!
