This winter seems particularly brutal and the chilling winds are wreaking havoc on our faces, especially our lips! It seems every client that I’ve worked on so far this year is suffering from reeeeeally chapped lips no matter how often they re-apply their lip balm. A couple months ago I posted the Winter Lip Fix tutorial with a bi-weekly scrub and mask (and I’d love to hear if any of you have tried it and have had good results!). But if that’s not enough or you’re still looking for something else, you have to give a non-balm a try.

Balms try to protect lips against getting chapped, or getting more chapped, but if they’re already chapped, they can’t really undo them. That doesn’t mean you have to give up! A non-balm penetrates, conditions and moisturizes instead of sitting on top as protection (which is still important too!). ┬áCombine it with daily scrubbing (when you brush your teeth, brush your lips) and you can absolutely start bringing your lips back to life. Here’s how:

THE {NON} BALMS:

STEPS:

  1. With either the oil or the serum, pump once on the tip of your finger. (With the oil, you can apply it directly on your lip area if you want, obviously).
  2. Smear it all over your lip area. You don’t have to give it a few minutes before applying lipstick, but I always do because I’m a little neurotic and don’t want anything to interfere with it working its magic!
