Chapped Lips Have Met Their Match With This $8 Amazon Buy
I’ve got a bone to pick with whoever decided that the winter holidays should double as “make-out season.” As if there wasn’t enough stress associated with combatting dry, cracked lips this time of year, we’ve now also gotta worry about the pressure associated with mistletoe, New Years Eve, and Valentine’s Day?! Sheesh. My lips hurt just thinking about it.
Enter almond oil, the all-natural solution that will help keep your lips hydrated all winter long. “Almond oil has been traditionally used in many ways on the skin because of its anti-inflammatory, immunity-boosting, emollient, and sclerosant properties,” says Nava Greenfield, MD at Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City, noting that it has also been anecdotally used to treat eczema and psoriasis. “It is a great, safe product to use on the lips if they are dry and cracked,” she says…as long as you don’t have any allergies to almonds. In addition to moisturizing your lips, it can also be used on the rest of your face to “improve complexion and skin tone.”
