Did you know that your lips are not actually pink or red? They appear this way because their blood supply is so close to the surface! The skin covering your lips is thin and fragile, and if you’ve lived through enough Canadian winters and hot summers, you know that harsh weather can leave lips dehydrated, cracked and sore.
No matter what the season, or where you live – we all deal with dry and chapped lips from time to time. I didn’t appreciate how important protecting my lips was until I was introduced to Eminence Organics and their amazing line of organic lip care.
A few years ago I was addicted to using chapstick, but it felt like the more I used it, the worse my lips got.
One of the reasons for my love of Eminence lip products is that they hydrate, protect and correct… and when it comes to protecting my kisser… I wouldn’t put anything else on it than my Eminence Organic Lip Balm!
Here are three ways to help keep your lips soft, protected and looking great!
1. Break The Chap Stick Addiction
If you’ve smeared your dry lips with ordinary chapstick but felt them tighten and dry just shortly afterwards, this reaction can be due to chapstick ingredients like petroleum. Studies show that petroleum doesn’t actually hydrate or nourish the skin at all - it seals the lips so moisture can’t escape but also prevents moisture from getting in.
2. Protect Your Lips From The Sun
We all know about the dangers of sun damage and nothing leads to dry, peeling lips faster than unprotected sun exposure. Eminence Organics is the best lip balm for skiing, summer activities and all-season action. The fact that it smells and tastes delicious is a bonus!
3. Get Picky With What You’re Ingesting
It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that many women consumes about 6 pounds of lipstick during her lifetime. Although the number could be less - com quotes a 1990 National Health and Medical Research Council in Canberra, Australia study that stands by a more modest 1-3 pounds - the fact is that there is a significant amount of lip product or lipstick that a woman eats in her lifetime. By choosing an alternative to ordinary chapstick and ingredients like petroleum - which potentially contains carcinogenic chemicals – you’re protecting your health by avoiding chemicals that can cause all kinds of harm to our health and well being.
Benefits of Using Eminence Organics
The biggest benefit of Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm is that it gets rid of dry, flaky skin while moisturizing and soothing the healthy skin underneath. And just in case you’re wondering… yes the balm itself is also unisex, so it can be used by anybody with dry and chapped lips.
I’ve been using (and loving) the Citrus Lip Balm, we’ve also got the Rosehip and Lemongrass Lip Balm, and the famous Lip Trio.
Whichever one you choose, your lips are going to be healthy, smooth and soft with balanced moisture.
It just doesn’t get more beautiful than that!
