My lips are the first place to react to cold weather and the usual balms aren’t cutting it. Do you have a suggestion?

Popular lip balms will simply coat the lips and when it wears off, you’re back to where you started. Treating lips with ANTI-AGE Lip Renewing Serum nightly helps to restore definition and keeps lips looking naturally full and youthful. Used nightly, each mono-dose capsule helps lips retain natural moisturizing factors, smooths lip texture, reduces the appearance of lip wrinkles, and provides protective antioxidant benefits. The result is fuller, firmer, smoother, hydrated and more defined-looking lips.

For maintenance during the day use ESSENTIALS Lip Shield SPF 25. This hydrating lip balm soothes, softens and protects lips from the aging and burning effects of the sun with SHIELDrf, an exclusive complex of stabilized avobenzone and antioxidant/anti-inflammatory colorless carotenoids for effective UVA sunscreen protection. It also conditions lips with collagen-stimulating peptides to smooth lip texture, lipid molecules for long-term moisturization and dimethicone to protect the delicate moisture barrier. Vitamins A, C and E provide antioxidant protection, while shea butter, avocado and sunflower seed oil hydrate and moisturize.

 Why does my skin get drier in colder weather?

In the winter, we turn up the thermostat in our homes which removes humidity from the air and causes dehydration of our skin. We also wear more clothing, which can wick moisture from the surface of the skin. Dry skin is thinner, more fragile and has less of a protective barrier. Once the skin’s barrier is compromised, moisture loss continues and the skin is vulnerable to the entrance of irritants and infections, often leading to a red, itchy rash.

Take a warm (not hot bath) and apply ESSENTIALS Daily Body Moisturizer after patting the skin dry to tackle body moisturization in a whole new way. Featuring RF-Dcell technology, Daily Body Moisturizer prolongs the lifespan of healthy cells so skin is more resilient to the climate-induced stressors that cause skin to feel dry, tight and uncomfortable. RF-Dcell acts almost like “psychotherapy for skin,” calming frenzied cells down, normalizing the rate of cell maturation and in the end, making skin function more efficiently. The result: skin is able to retain moisture and remain comfortable when challenged by climate and other environmental aggressors.
