8 Masks, Scrubs, and Balms To Revive Dry Winter Lips
As soon as my lips get dry and relentlessly flakey, I know that cold weather is here. I’m not talking about the oh-no-it’s-too-cold-to wear-my-leather-jacket kind of cold, but the wow-what-was-it-like-to-go-outside-and-still-feel-my-hands kind of cold. Caren Campbell, MD, a California-based board-certified dermatologist, agrees that dry lips are as much of a winter staple as hot cocoa and puffer coats (only, much less eagerly anticipated).
“Dry lips happen just like dry skin due to the lack of humidity in the air due to the season change and use of heaters that further dry out the air,” says Dr. Campbell.
To get your lips back to being soft and hydrated, shop the below products for dry lips that we’re loving right now.
