Healthy Winter Lips with Carmex

Winter winds are the worst thing for my lips. For anyones lips really. Drying and chapping are issues that so many of us cannot escape. We can make it better with the help of certain steps.

Exfoliating the lips once a week or so will help keep them soft and kissable. Be sure to choose an exfoliant that is gentle so you do not end up chaffing your lips.

Keeping your lips protected from those harsh winter winds is an imperative step. Carmex has been making the great hydrating and protecting lip balms we love since 1937. They have amazing patterns that are a lot of fun to show off. Grace is in heaven every times she sees a new Carmex tube. I wish you could see how excited she gets when it comes to her lip balms.

CarmexSomething Grace pointed out was how much Carmex helps with her dry mouth issues. Anyone who takes medicines that cause dry mouth should understand what she means. Carmex adds the perfect amount of moisture to keep lips safe from repetitive licking.

Always Use Protection – Carmex


Summer is here in full swing and it is time to start thinking about skin care and making sure you have all the summer essentials to keep your skin looking beautiful. As glorious as the sun may feel on your skin, it can do a great deal of damage. First things first, you want to be sure to keep your skin hydrated and protected.

This includes your lips.

Carmex Moisture Plus

Many of us forget about our lips health during summer. This can prove to be disastrous. Just as your skin can age prematurely and begin to wrinkle, so can your lips. In addition, continuous exposure to the sun’s UV rays can potentially lead to skin cancer.

Yes, this can occur on your lips.

Skin cancer on the lips is actually not that uncommon. Talk about scary, right?! How  many times have you exposed your lips without protecting them first? Don’t worry, I’m guilty of this too; I think we all have at some point.


Luckily, Carmex has the solution in the form of their moisturizing lip balms plus SPF 15. Carmex lip balms will not only protect your lips from the sun, but they are filled with moisturizing Shea butter and vitamin E. Carmex lip balms come in attractive designs and even have a nice tint to them, which is great because you can skip the harsh lipsticks.

Carmex Lip Protection

Carmex did not forget about your skin either. They have a line of healing lotions and creams to keep your skin looking healthy and beautiful right through the harshest of summers. So, this summer while getting all your summer essentials such as tanning lotions, sun blockers, and a new swimsuit, make sure you don’t forget you lip care.

With it’s vast array of positives, I think it’s only fitting that Carmex makes it to our summer essentials list. You can find Carmex Moisture Plus at many of your local retailers. Get a complete list of where to find Carmex here.
