Raise your hand if you’re over winter! Last Thursday, 49 of the 50 states had at least some snow on the ground. (Florida was the exception.) Compared to much of the country, Seattle’s winter has been a cakewalk…but that hasn’t stopped my lips from feeling (and showing) the effects of chilly wind and indoor heating.
Flakes, cracks, and dryness aren’t limited to cold weather—they can also be caused by too much sun, too little water, licking or chewing your lips, allergies, snoring, too much caffeine, salty foods, and even citrus fruit. Basically, we all need to take care of our mouths all the time.
Fortunately, this month’s Modern Beauty box is like a care package for your lips. We’ve assembled two ingredient dream teams to give them the TLC they need and deserve.
Buff Lip Scrub
This nourishing sugar scrub eliminates those pesky little skin flakes—just wipe on and tissue off. Vitamins E & B5 dive deep to heal, moisturize, and protect while shea butter nourishes, conditions, and smoothes to improve the texture of your lips. Toss the convenient twist-click pen in your purse for easy on-the-go exfoliation.
Luxe Lip Conditioning Treatment
From its cooling metal tip—designed to soothe dry, chapped lips and stimulate microcirculation—to its silky-smooth texture, this luxurious treatment sets a new bar for balm. Omega-rich pumpkin seed oil boosts lipids & helps retain elasticity. Shea butter, vitamin E, and other natural oils lock in hydration, enhance definition, fight collagen loss, and keep lips soft and supple.
