When the temperature drops, it isn't just our face and hands that feel the effects.
The skin on our lips tends to be much thinner than in other areas, which means its more likely to be zapped of moisture as soon as the freezing cold weather hits. Cue flaky patches, chapping, soreness - you get the picture.
It's not something you have to put up with, though, and thanks to brands like SkinCeuticals, Glossier and La Roche-Posay to name but a few, there are so many pout-perfecting treatments out there, all vying for a spot on your lips.
We're talking overnight masks and serums as well as scrubs and oils, boasting a cocktail of hydrating, lip plumping ingredients like hyaluronic acid and shea butter, and rapid skin healers like vitamin E and B5.
Check out the best lip treatments that'll transform your lips from sandpaper to seriously smooth.More
Look Fantastic - £8.50
They might look and feel a little weird at first, but in just fifteen minutes, STARSKIN's serum-packed lip masks deliver such an intense hit of hydration to dry, withered lips. The results are a little like magic: A buxom pout that is touchably soft for the whole day, so there's no need to top up on balm. It's the perfect pre-lipstick ritual.
SkinCeuticals - £36.75
This formula occupies a comfortable space between a silky gloss and a matte cream and enlists a megamix of ingredients to transform shrivelled, wind-ravaged lips. We're talking hyaluronic acid to flood them with moisture, glycerin to soften, vitamin E for protection against aggressors and humectants to extend the quenched feel. You'll wonder how you ever survived winter without it.
