Dry, chapped lips is not just a winter concern. Your lips may not feel as dry during the other months, but they’re definitely prone to peeling. Saving lip balms and other hydrating lip products for winter is like using sunscreen only in summer. Just like your skin needs year round protection from the sun, your lips too need hydration irrespective of the season.
Using hydrating lip products throughout the year has a lot of benefits (other than the obvious one that it keeps your lips soft and moisturised). Some lip products are infused with SPF and can offer protection from the sun too. But since the market is flooded with options, it can get difficult to pick the products that are best for you. Therefore, to make it easier for you, we’ve picked our favourite products that will give you hydrated, smooth and soft lips.
01. Lip repair
If you are looking for a product that not just hydrates but also repairs your lips by minimizing contour lines and making rough, uneven lips smooth then the Dermalogica Age Smart Renewal Lip Complex is perfect for you. Infused with the goodness of vitamin E, avocado, shea butter and more, this product restores skin tissues and fights free radicals that cause skin damage.
02. Lip tint
For those who like their chapsticks to also leave behind a natural tint, the Lakme Lip Love Chapstick SPF 15 is the perfect pick. Available in 7 beautiful tints, this chapstick is infused with SPF 15 to protect your delicate lips from the harsh rays of the sun.
Who would’ve thought lipsticks can be hydrating too? Packed with nourishing ingredients like argan oil, the Lakme Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color with Argan Oil gives your lips a beautiful wash of colour, while also providing intense hydration.
04. Lip gloss
Whether it’s a clear gloss or something that enhances the natural colour of your lips, you cannot go wrong with a lip gloss. Just one swipe of the Lakme Absolute Plump and Shine Lip Gloss will turn heads and keep your lips soft and nourished too!
05. Lip balm
Last but not the least, the good old chapstick that not only keeps your lips soft and smooth but also works as an excellent product to wear under lipstick. The Vaseline Lip Therapy Color & Care continues to win us over in the lip balm category.
