There’s no hiding a pout that’s in crisis, a struggle that’s all too common come winter. Between office space heaters and unkind weather conditions, it feels like we’re in a constant battle against our chapped lips. The truth is that balms only do so much on their own — but a 360-degree lip care routine paired with amped up hydration efforts will turn that frown upside down (without cracking).
To deal with our own chapped lip conundrum this season, we scoured the well-curated shelves of The Detox Market to build the perfect collection of lip care essentials. Check it out…
Henne Lip MASK | When our lips are in crisis mode, a super hydrating lip mask like this is our fast-track fix. In the same way you’d use a sheet mask to instantly infuse your skin with moisture, simply slather on this creamy formula and leave it there for 15 – 30 minutes before gently wiping it away. This sleep container is packed with fruit and seed oils including rosehip, avocado, jojoba, pomegranate, cranberry, cumin, lemon, orange and good ol’ vitamin E. Check out
Ilia Balmy Nights Lip Care | Out with the old, in with the new. The first step to a perfect pout is to exfoliate any dry and dead skin away. Exfoliating creates a smooth surface for your serums and balms to soak right in. This lip exfoliator is one of our faves for its convenient stick form and gentle but effective ingredients. Tiny granules of volcanic stone powder polish away without causing irritation while botanical oils infuse the fresh skin with moisture. CHECK OUT
Odacite Adventurine Kiss Lip SERUM | This lip saving serum is powered by super-antioxidant CoQ10, vitamin C and vitamin E to prevent dryness, restore plumpness and soften fine lines. The Aventurine crystal applicator is a fun touch with a cooling effect that feels so good when skin is suffering. Use this treatment as you would any other skin serum — straight onto freshly cleansed and exfoliated skin — or as a pre-lipstick primer. CHECK OUT
Kjaer Weis The Lip BALM | No chapped lip survival plan would be complete without a go-to balm. We love this one from Kjaer Weis for its chic re-fillable packaging (hello, low-waste living) and clean formula. This petroleum and paraben-free lip balm is powered by healing plant oils like Brazil nut, sunflower seed, Rosehip oil and chamomile. CHECK OUT
RMS Lip pencil | Now that your pout is buffed, primed and hydrated, it’s time to add a hint of color. This buttery smooth lip liner is precise and hydrating — a perfect one-two punch. CHECK OUT
RMS Wild with desire lipstick | When it comes to lip rehab, lipstick shouldn’t just be a coverup but a therapeutic part of your process. Get yourself a stick that does both. This lipstick from RMS delivers a perfect, velvety finish packed with nourishing elements like shea butter, rosehip, and jojoba oil. CHECK OUT
Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 | The delicate skin around our mouth is already sensitive and in need of protection, and when we’re chapped that’s especially true.ILIA’s lip tinter conditioners provide the perfect amount of coverage with hydration benefits to boot. This SPF-infused version of their classic lip conditioner includes moisturizing cocoa and shea butter to soften lips, antioxidant oils like avocado and cranberry to strengthen, and natural SPF to protect.
