The Best Lip Care Items

Taking care of your lips is important. The changes in the weather, the sun's harmful rays and more can affect your lip health. Since the skin on your lips is so thin it's vital to keep them moisturized. My lips often get chapped with the severe changes in weather in Maine, so I have learned which products work and which do not. These are my go-to lip care items when my lips are badly chapped:

Carmex Lip Moisturizing Original Balm in the tube is my first go-to lip care item. I call it my lip gloss. It not only moisturizes my lips, but also makes them look great.  It moisturizes my lips effectively and I can use it often. While it's on it prevents chapping. I always have a tube in my makeup bag. The Carmex Moisture Plus also works well.

Nivea Kiss of Mint and Minerals Lip Care is my second go-to lip balm. This one works when nothing else will. When my lips were so chapped they were cracked all over due to the long winter we had here in Maine, this is the lip balm that soothed and moisturized them. Nothing else worked.

Next up is Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect Lip Balm with Sunscreen. This one moisturizes and protects lips from UVA and UVB rays and is especially formulated for sensitive lips.

All of these lip care products work for me. Keep your lips moisturized and protected, especially from the sun. All lip care items should have SPF in them to protect your lips from the sun's harmful rays.

What's your go-to lip care product?
