#PrepYourLips, especially for the summer heat
Have you ever kept mum while hard at work or doing something else for a few hours and suddenly opened your mouth and felt the skin on your lips crack? Ouch. Lip care is just as important as skincare but too often, many of us forget to give the most sensual and hardworking part of our face some love (fun fact: lip-licking doesn’t count and ironically dries out your puckers because saliva wears its thin skin down).
So how does one pamper his or her kiss? Burt’s Bees helps make it easy for all of us, but we’re adding a crucial step for even better results:
This one’s pretty obvious, but we all need to be reminded ti drink water when you’re body needs it because there’s no point in slathering a ton of products if you’re not hydrated on the inside.
Buff away rough, flaky skin with Burt’s Bees Conditioning Lip Scrub. Made with 100% natural ingredients (packaged in post-recycled materials), this lip scrub features honey crystals infused with responsibly sourced beeswax and cocoa butter. It’s gentle on skin and leaves lips with a soft and smooth finish.
Usage: 2 to 3 times a week
How to: Scrub against the surface of the lips in a circular motion. Rinse or gently wipe off
Hydrate With An Intensive Lip Treatment
Keep those lips feeling and looking moisturized longer with the brand’s Overnight Intensive Lip treatment. Made with a ceramide-rich formula, this treatment in a pot reduces the appearance of fine lines and ensures supple lips throughout your slumber. Did we mention, its packed with vitamin E-rich jojoba oil and peppermint.
How to: Use before bed and during the day as needed
Tint Those Lips
Now that your kiss is soft and super smooth, add a healthy wash of color via Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm (the Rose variant seems to suit most skin types). With a sheer and wearable coverage, this lip balm delivers 8-hour moisturization thanks to ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E. Also available in Pink Blossom, Hibiscus, Red Dahlia, Sweet Violet and Zinnia.
All Burt’s Bees products are free from Parabens, Phthalates, Petrolatum and SLS, making it a top choice for 100% natural solutions for many skin woes.
