Hydration is essential at any time of the year, but here in Brazil the drier winter calls for even greater care. It’s not just the face, body and hair that need more moisturizing products this season: the lips too! I haven’t given up lip balms for a few years now, and this increased care has intensified as air travel has become more common.
This is because it is not only the dry weather that worsens the dryness of the mouth, but also the air conditioning and, of course, the heaters. I started to use simpler lip balms and even a cocoa butter from time to time, but I confess that moisturizers with soft colors were gaining more and more space.
That’s because I was never much of the vibrant lipsticks and the lighter shades of the balms have always had more to do with my makeup style. In addition, in the past few years, many brands have invested in lip balms with different colors and not only the basic pink: it has red, purple and even orange.
The biggest advantage of this product is the practicality! You don’t even need a mirror to make the perfect lip contour, so it’s the ideal product to make that make in a hurry inside the car, you know? It hydrates well, can be passed on over without a problem of “cracking” and can even be used as a blush on those days when we forget the makeup bag ?
