Winter is a season that brings along an equal share of boons and banes into our lives. On one hand, we have celebrations, parties and special treats, things I'm sure we're all super excited about. But on the flip side, there's dry and itchy skin, flaky, chapped lips and hair that just won't care!

 

Let's key in on the most annoying one of winter's hardships, shall we? Have you ever had to bring together every ounce of your will power to resist biting off the drying skin on your lips? Then you know the pain that comes with sore, scaly, severely chapped lips! While chapped lips can happen any time of the year, its around the season of cold winds and dropping air moisture that our lips suffer the most. That is unless we decide to be mindful of our pucker's hydration needs. 

 

If that's the juncture you've arrived at, we have some solutions we can offer. Thoroughly moisturising balms for your lips that bring them back to the pink of their health. Curious? Start scrolling down for our list of the 7 best lip balms you can fight winter harshness with.

Why We Recommend It  

Owing to its creamy consistency, this lip balm does its job in just a light dash. It's super moisturising and the hydrating effect in this stick lasts longer than a lot of lip balms in the market.

This Body Shop Lip balm comes with SPF 15, and we could all use some extra protection during these hot sunny days. Especially for people who aren't fond of strong smells in their lip products, this one comes with a very mild vanilla fragrance.
