Tip 1:Use Lip Care Daily. Use a lip care product as part of a daily regimen to moisturize your lips and maintain their healthy condition.
A lip protectant, such as Blistex Five Star Lip Protection, provides daily defense against nature’s harshest conditions and provides Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sun protection. For a medicated alternative try Blistex Medicated Lip Balm. Daily treatment of the lips helps maintain a smooth feel and appearance.
Tip 2:Use Lip Care Before Exposure to Dry Environment.
Whenever you are exposed to especially drying conditions, whether due to harsh outdoor elements or a dry indoor environment, use a lip care product that seals in natural moisture and seals out the drying forces. Recommended products, like Blistex Medicated Lip Balm, Blistex Complete Moisture, and Blistex DCT (Daily Conditioning Treatment) combine a number of protectants to defend your
lips effectively. Blistex Ultra-Rich Hydration is a breakthrough dual-layer balm with two advanced formulas. The inner core deeply hydrates with rich moisturizers, and the outer core smoothes and seals with protectants.
Tip 3:Use Lip Care Before Exposure to Sun.
Any time of the year that you are exposed to the always harmful rays of the sun, use a product with an adequate SPF (Sun Protection Factor). Beyond the sun's well-known skin damage impact, exposure to the sun is also a trigger for cold sores/fever blisters for those who are susceptible. An SPF number indicates how many times longer a person can stay in the sun before beginning to burn. Try any of the Blistex products with sunscreen including Blistex Soft & Lush, Complete Moisture and Five Star Lip Protection, which provides Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sun protection.
Tip 4:Treat Sore or Already Chapped Lips With A Medicated Lip Care Product.
If dryness, cracking or soreness of the lip has already developed, it is especially important to use a medicated product to provide relief. A product with a penetrating analgesic can soothe the lips quickly and effectively. Blistex Lip Ointment delivers penetrating medication, and is the only lip ointment that contains moisture. Also for sore lips, Blistex Lip Medex provides ultra-cooling relief.
Tip 5:Use Lip Care Under or Even Instead of Lipstick.
Use a lip care product like Blistex Medicated Lip Balm or Blistex Lip Ointment, before applying lipstick. This helps color go on more evenly for a smoother look. Alternatively, Blistex Lip Vibrance already provides a touch of lasting color and shimmer along with the moisturization and protection your lips need.
Tip 6:Use A Lip Care Product With Age Defying Ingredients For Smoother, Younger Looking Lips.
Choosing a lip balm with ingredients specifically designed to combat the effects of aging is another option to ensure the health and beauty of your lips. Blistex Deep Renewal with Q10 and a vitamin-collagen anti-oxidant complex, is clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on your lips, within 4 weeks.
