How to Keep Lips Moisturized

No matter the season, keeping your lips moisturized is an absolute must. Dry lips present as chapped and flaky, which can be both uncomfortable and a nuisance, so it’s important to incorporate a lip product that hydrates into your routine. Unlike the rest of your skincare regimen, lip care can be applied consistently and regularly, meaning you can keep your lips moisturized all day, every day. 

Enter our award-winning Lip Butter Balm, which is a powerful product that treats your lips like a mask, wears like a balm, and has the finish of a gloss. Formulated with vegan butters and waxes and a subtle hint of vanilla flavoring, it’s the perfect addition to your routine, whether you’re indulging in your skincare ritual at home or reapplying hydration on-the-go.

Here’s everything you need to know about dry lips and how to care for them.

What Causes Dry Lips?

Chapped lips are the result of dry, cracked skin on your lips due to cold or dry weather, sun exposure, frequently licking your lips, or dehydration. A few of these causes can be easily remedied — spending less time in the sun, consciously avoiding licking your lips, and drinking more water — but in the event of inclement weather or other conditions, additional help is required in the form of a topical treatment.

How to Treat Dry Lips

The best way to keep your lips moisturized is with a lip balm. Our Lip Butter Balm has the treatment power and intense hydration of a mask, but has the lightweight finish of a balm. And even better, it has a high-shine, glossy finish that isn’t sticky so you can comfortably wear it all day, either alone or on top of your favorite lipstick. 

In case Lip Butter Balm is new to your routine, here are all its nourishing ingredients you’ll love: 

• Shea and Murumuru Seed Butters: These vegan butters are intensely hydrating so that the balm functions both for daily wear and as an overnight mask. They work to soothe, heal, and condition dry lips so you can say goodbye to chapped and flaky lips. 

• Vegan Waxes: These are the ingredients you can thank for the glossy, shiny finish that leaves your lips feeling soothed but never greasy. The texture is ultra-light so that it can layer well over your favorite makeup, but it still delivers on hydration and nourishment. 

• Natural Vanilla Flavor: For a sweet treat at the end of your skincare or makeup routine. It's super subtle so those with sensitive noses won't be bothered, but it's enough to make you want to reapply whenever you can.
