Our lips lack the many protective layers of the rest of our skin, so it takes more to keep them hydrated. Count on the nourishing oils in these balms and sticks to seal in moisture and keep lips smooth and soft, even in the driest of winters.
Éminence Lip Trio
This triple-step treatment is designed to refine, soften, and plump lips over a four-week period. Step 1: Exfoliate weekly with citrus and pineapple enzymes. Step 2: Hydrate with a shea-butter lip masque. (Shea butter, derived from the nut of the African shea tree, is rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants and acts as an emollient, making skin soft and supple.) Step 3: Maintain hydration and plump lips with a citrus lip balm. ($60, eminenceorganics.com)
