Protect your Lips During the Cold Winter Days!

The cold, dry, winter days can be harsh on your lips too. What is your favorite lip product. Lots of people like the regular original Vaseline, regular chap stick, Burts Beewax, Lipfusion, Lansinoh, and my favorite Aquaphor.

Aquaphor healing ointment is a thick petroleum jelly like Vaseline, except better. Aquaphor contains some medication in it too, so it protects your lips a little better.

Here are the ingredients:
Active Ingredient: Petroleum (41%), Inactive Ingredients: Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol, Panthenol, Glycerin, Bisabolol

The panthenol and glycerin may help to moistorize your lips more too. Petroleum and minerol oil form a protective layer over your lips, allowing your lips time to heal and protect themselves from the environment. Bisabolol is also an very good anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory.

I wear Aquaphor every night and it last pretty much the whole night on me. I use to have to reapply chap stick every couple hours, but with Aquaphor I hardly ever reapply.

Aquaphor can also be wore on the driest parts of your body, like your hands, feet, and even your face. If your face gets really irritated and dry from harsh skincare products, try a thin layer of Aquaphor over night.

Aquaphor Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Target

Walgreens has come out with their brand of Aquaphor! It comes in a big 3 ounce tube and cost $6. I just love Aquaphor, it is the best lip moisturizer. I use it every night before I go to bed and it keeps my lips moisturized the whole night. And this is coming from a chapstick addict.

CVS and Rite Aid also carry their own brand of Aquaphor as well. Target does not have their own brand yet, hopefully one day. Although I think since Target’s prices are so great that the regular Aquaphor is worth it to buy there. It doesn’t matter where you buy it, when it comes to the ingredients, they are all the same.

Make sure to use an spf lipstick during the day. Or use an spf chapstick under your lipstick to keep your lips protected from the sun. It is pretty much impossible to find a stable chemical spf chapstick, but if you are a chapstick addict and constantly reapply then that should be fine.

How to Kick Your Lip Balm Addiction!

Are you lips always chapped? Are you addicted to lip balm?

Yes you can actually be addicted to lip balm! Yikes!
I am addicted. I admit it. That’s the first step to healthy lips right!? I has no clue that I was using chap stick too many times!

I have used every chap stick under the sun. Burt'sbees, chapstick, blistex, carmex, bonne bell, body shop variaties, vaseline, every drugstore brand, random natural ones, bath & body works.... Okay I could still go on, but I won't bore you. Whenever I would go out I would buy a new chap stick. Always searching for the most moisturizing yummiest one I could find.

My lips are actually dependent on chap stick, they cannot moisturize themselves, that’s why I have to reapply so frequently! Winging off of chap stick is pretty much the only way for your lips to gain back their natural moisturizing abilities. All of the sudden just not using chap stick as much is almost like torture for me, my lips just get so dry!
Until finally, I have found one that has actually help me cut down my application times, just by moisturizing my lips for the longest ever. It is actually not a conventional chap stick, so no wonder it took me so long to find it!

Aquaphor! Yes, Aquaphor is the secret to heavily moisturizing your lips and kicking your addiction! After applying Aquaphor my lips stay moisturized for several hours! In the past I always had to reapply every hour or more! Petroleum is the main ingredient in Aquaphor, because petroleum is the most moisturizing ingredient. Aquaphor is actually a healing ointment that is used for cracked dry skin, minor burns, and diaper rash. So not only does Aquaphor moisturize but it heals your lips. My lips are dry cracked skin, so it is save to use on my lips! Try it, just once and you will be in love! When I apply it at night before bed, it lasts all night long! And I think my lips are finally not so dependent on chap stick.

Aquaphor is also the best lip balm out there, because it is a multi-purpose item! Slather some on your feet then put on socks, go to bed and wake up with the softest feet. Aquaphor can also be used as a moisturizer for dry peeling face.

I always have to have Aquaphor by my bed now! I only use Aquaphor at night or when I am at home. When I am out during the day I use a chap stick or gloss with SPF in it! Don’t forget your lips, they need sun protection too!
