What is one item that can always be found in your purse or diaper bag? Mine? Lip balm and lotion. Okay, so that’s two, but we live in SUCH a dry climate that has our family constantly seeking some kind of moisturizer. I am excited to be partnering with Carmex® to share with you a few different options to help keep your lips looking luscious during this dry season.
It may be cold outside, but you can usually find our family finding something fun to do in the snow. Whether it’s outside building a snowman, or going snowmobiling, we love to take advantage of the weather and have some fun. I like to be prepared for chapped lips this time of year, so I usually stick a lip balm in everyone’s coat pockets. I love the Carmex® Comfort Care, especially for the girls, as it’s made with natural ingredients. It’s formulated with colloidal oatmeal, beeswax, and cupuacu butter and contains antioxidant-rich fruit seed oil to help provide hydration. The Mixed Berry is my favorite as it is 100% natural and doesn’t contain any artificial flavors! Emery is obsessed with lip balm right now so I feel better letting her use this natural choice as she re-applies almost every 5 minutes.
Another product we use a lot this time of year is the Carmex® Daily Care. We are heading to the mountains next weekend, and I always want to make sure our lips are protected especially at a high elevation. When we ski, we always make sure to use sunscreen on our face, but it is just as important to use an SPF on our lips! The Carmex® Daily Care contains a SPF 15 to help with sun protection as well as helping to keep them moisturized. I love the fun flavors it comes in too: Wintergreen (my favorite), Winter Mint, Strawberry, and Cherry.
The last product I want to share with you may come in handy if you are one to catch a cold and are one of the “lucky ones” to also get a cold sore outbreak. A cold sore can be so painful and uncomfortable; but with Carmex® Cold Sore Treatment it can not only help minimize the appearance of the cold sore, but help with any cracking, itching, dryness, or pain. It’s always a great a idea to keep this on hand just in case anyone in your family gets one during cold season!
Lip balm may be needed more during the winter months, but I believe it’s just as important to keep our lips feeling hydrated and protected all-year-round. I hope you are able to find any of these products helpful whether it’s from just needing a lip moisturizer, protection from the sun, or treatment for a cold sore outbreak— Carmex® has your lips covered!
