Winter Lip Service

Unwelcome cold winds and icy temperatures can wreak havoc on even the thickest of skins, but no part of our body bears the brunt as badly as our lips. This delicate area can be prone to dehydration and chapping in the throes of winter, but we’ve come up with the best tips for soft, trouble-free lips throughout the year.

Ole Henriksen’s African Red Tea Exfoliating Lip Salvation

Like the rest of your face, the skin on your lips needs regular exfoliation to remove flaky, dry patches. Gently scrub them with a soft, dry toothbrush, or try Ole Henriksen’s African Red Tea Exfoliating Lip Salvation (£11) before you go to bed.

Decleor’s Eye & Lip Moisturising Mask

If you’ve got the time for some real pampering, follow exfoliation with Decleor’s Eye & Lip Moisturising Mask (£27.50). This treatment, specifically designed for fragile areas, will provide continuous ‘drip-feed hydration’, to lock in moisture and gently plump your lips.

Jack Black’s Intense Therapy Balm SPF25

For an extreme hit of moisture on-the-go, keep Jack Black’s Intense Therapy Balm SPF25 (£7.25) in your handbag at all times. It’s packed with skin conditioners such as Vitamin E and shea butter, and it’s designed to protect against all kinds of extreme weather.

Clarins & Rimmel Lipsticks

There’s nothing worse than lipstick on chapped lips. However, just because your lips are suffering, doesn’t mean you have to give up your slick of colour. Opt for hydrating lipsticks such as Clarins Hydra Nude Smoothing Cream Lipstick (£16.50) or Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick (£6.29).
