With colder weather always comes dry, cracked lips. You can drink as much water as your body can handle, but sometimes that still doesn’t cut it. We just want soft, kissable lips – is that too much to ask?!

Well, with these products, it’s not. It’s time to load your arsenal of preventative lip care products to make sure you’re always ready to be kissed this winter (you never know, right?).

The skin on your lips is much thinner than the rest of the skin on your body, and it doesn’t have the same oil glands either. So, this makes it more prone to drying out more quickly, as well as getting irritated. This is all the more reason to invest in some good lip balms to prevent dry lips from taking over your life. Here are our favs.

Kopari Coconut Lip Love

This coconut infused lip balm is glossy and delicious. While the coconut oil moisturizes and locks in hydration, antioxidants nourish and calm your dry, irritated lips. Yum.

I have loved Burt’s Bees lip balm for basically my entire life. It’s one of those products where after you apply it, you don’t have chapped lips anymore. Simple as that. They have tons of flavors and scents, so pick your favorite and kiss your dry lips goodbye.

This stuff is pure magic. I use it every day and every night, and I can’t live without it. It’s tingly, moisturizing, and it looks like you have lip gloss on. It’s the only thing that truly heals my dry lips!

Lip Scrub, Mint Flavor

If you’re trying to heal chapped lips, you need to scrub the dead skin off them first. There is no use in putting hydrating products on them if there’s a bunch of dead skin cells getting in the way of your lips underneath. Use a lip scrub like this one, or DIY your own, to deliciously get rid of the dry dead skin. Then, use any of the products above to heal the lips.
