Your Cure to Crazy Dry Lips
Your lips take a battering from the sun. They chap, flake, burn, and can feel drier than a week-old baguette. To take some of the leg work out of keeping your lips primed and protected, I have rounded up a few new products, DIY recipes, and tips from Arbonne below.
Prep + Prime Lips. Just launched, Arbonne's Intelligence® Lip Treatment blends botanicals and cutting-edge scientific ingredients like Phytinol™ to soften the appearance of fine lines on the lips and support the skin's natural moisture barrier. Lips feel replenished, hydrated and moisturized. Also enhances the appearance of lip volume and multitasks as a primer for lipstick or gloss. ($48, arbonne.com)
DIY Lemony Lip Scrub. Mix 1 tsp. of coconut oil, 1 tsp. of raw honey, 2 tbsp. of sugar and add a dash of lemon juice together. Rub this sugary paste in circular motions across your lips, then rinse and apply your favorite lip balm for soft, smooth lips. Don't worry if you happen to taste it – it's absolutely delish!
Swap Your Coffee for Tea. High caffeine content dries out our bodies, and to top it off, have diuretic properties that add to the dehydration. Opt for herbal tea this winter and when you start to feel the afternoon sleepies, grab a glass of water and stir in one of Arbonne's Essentials Energy Fizz Sticks to create a refreshing bubbly drink that helps boost energy levels.

To-The-Max Hydration . Indulge in a dose of moisture that's been married with color in Arbonne Smoothed Over Lipstick. This luxurious formula is ultra-soft and delivers an efficacious blend of skin-conditioning watermelon and apple extracts to help lock in moisture. (Available in 16 shades; $28, arbonne.com)
I received samples of Arbonne Cosmetics Glossed Over Lip gloss in ‘Linden’ and Smoothed Over lipstick in ‘Poppy.' Normally, this time of year is almost as bad on my lips as the cold winter, because I always have the air conditioning on, or a fan blowing on me during the night. This can really wreak havoc on the lips! Mine are always getting chapped, and sometimes lipsticks or glosses make the problem worse.
I am very pleased with the Arbonne lip formulas I have tried because they help to heal my lips without irritating them. Plus the colors are gorgeous! I just cannot go wrong with Arbonne!
