Yes, we know, and it’s been said before, but that’s because water is so crucial to beauty in Colorado. Living a mile high means you need water and so do your lips. Lips are some of the thinnest and most delicate skin areas on your entire body and they are the first to lose moisture. Drinking an extra cup of water, or two, a day during the winter months will help keep lips and skin hydrated and supple from the inside out.
Get rid of dry skin and flakes that can get in the way of beautiful lips. Grab a toothbrush, run under warm water and gently brush your lips in small circular motion before applying lipstick, gloss or stain. The toothbrush will exfoliate your lips and remove dead skin, leaving your lips soft and renewed.
Colorado has over 300 days of sunshine, which is extraordinary, but can also damage your lips. Buying a lip balm with SPF 15 is crucial to keeping your lips healthy throughout the winter season.
