kick your lip-licking habit safely in three simple steps
This time of year, dry, chapped lips are common due to cold winter weather. Why? Because the skin on our lips is thinner and more likely to succumb to the effects of our environment than skin in other areas. Additionally, in an attempt to ease the discomfort, people tend to lick their lips when they feel dry, which backfires, as saliva actually draws moisture away from the skin as it dries. It can also spur a vicious cycle, where the lip licking begins all over again, only to dry the skin out more.
The key to curbing a lip-licking habit is to keep your lips protected and moisturized so you don’t feel the need to moisten them by licking. However, when choosing lip care products, it’s important to steer clear of harmful ingredients like petrolatum, fragrance, dyes, or alcohol, which can further dry out skin or cause other damage to your health.
Nourish and protect your lips safely with pure haven in three simple steps and kick the lip-licking habit for good!
- condition: Non toxic lip balm made with organic shea butter, beeswax, and essential oils helps condition lips and keep them healthy, hydrated, and soft. Keep your lip balm handy in your purse, backpack, car, or desk drawer (pure haven lip balm comes in a four pack so you can keep one in each spot!) for reapplying throughout the day whenever and wherever needed.
- exfoliate: A gentle sugar lip scrub made with organic cane sugar, shea butter, and sunflower oil is perfect for tending to dry, chapped lips. It buffs and moisturizes in one step for a softer, more kissable mouth. Exfoliating helps remove dry, flaky skin, making lips softer and smoother, reducing fine lines, restoring shine, and giving a fuller, healthier appearance. Additionally, once exfoliated, the skin on your lips is more receptive to step three.
- repair: With the help of a nourishing overnight lip mask made with organic shea butter, beeswax, and avocado oil, your dry, chapped lips will repair and rehydrate while you sleep. A mask is thicker and more saturated with beneficial ingredients than other lip treatments to help deliver moisture more effectively. You’ll wake up to smooth, supple lips in the morning.
Goodbye, dry skin and lip licking! Hello, soft, supple, and utterly kissable lips!
