Keep your lips kissable this winter
Chapped lips are painful and don’t look great under lipstick, but some traditional lip balms and products can actually make the problem worse. Beauty therapist and natural skincare expert, Esther Cooney says:
“If you’re using a petroleum based lip product, replace it with something else. Petroleum jelly makes your lips feel protected but it’s sucking all the moisture out of them, which is why you have to keep re-applying it.
“Choose lip products that contain high quality natural ingredients that nourish and restore moisture levels like calendula, chamomile, rose hip and sea buckthorn. The MADARA Softening Lip Balm (£.9.90 for 15ml) is great for keeping lips soft during the colder months.”
Esther also has some tips for defending your face from the onslaught of mean weather conditions,
“When the weather is cold and wet, soothe it with extra moisturising face creams like MADARA Deep Replenishing Moisturising Cream (£25 for 50ml), which has been especially formulated for times when your skin needs extra hydration. This clever cream contains 30 per cent lipids to strengthen the skin barrier and prevent water loss.”
