Chapped, dry, sore lips are a sure sign that winter has arrived! Whether you are skiing the slopes or just hanging at home the unique ingredients of Carmex lip balm will save you this winter!
So why do lips dry out and become chapped in winter? During winter, lips chap and crack primarily because of the evaporation of moisture on the lips surface as we move from the warmth of indoors to the cold outside. Plus the layer of natural oil, produced by the body to coat the lips, is stripped, also allowing chapped, cracked lips to develop!
Carmex lip balms, including the “perfect for the ski slopes” Carmex 4.25g Click Stick™ in Original (pictured) and Strawberry Flavours SPF 15 (RRP $4.99), the “easy applicator” 10g Squeeze Tube (RRP $5.99) and “The Cult Original” Carmex 7.5g Jar (RRP $5.99) are nurturing and therapeutic for your winter pout thanks to the following list of soothing ingredients;
Menthol and Camphor – Both responsible for that famous Carmex tingle, they help to kill germs and relieve discomfort. Menthol also has anaesthetic properties, helping soothe the discomfort of dry, chapped lips, whilst eliciting a cool, refreshing sensation.
Salicylic Acid – Helps to exfoliate! Salicylic acid improves the overall texture of your lips by promoting very mild exfoliation of the outermost layer of the lip, allowing dead skin cells to slough off and enabling the other important ingredients in Carmex to more effectively penetrate your lips.
Lanolin – Helps to soften, lubricate and protect, and helps reduce moisture loss and restore the softness and elasticity of lips.
Cocoa Butter – Helps to moisturise and protect. Cocoa butter encourages lips to retain moisture, which helps to prevent dryness and cracking. It also helps protect against environmental factors, making them feel soft and smooth.
Petrolatum – Petrolatum is the most effective moisturising agent available. It helps treat cracking by ensuring that the lips do not lose their moisturising properties and helps prevent the entry of germs into cracks and cuts, and helps protect from dry air, cold temperatures, wind and sun.
Lips for all occasions – Winter sports and outdoor activities ensure the colder months are exhilarating and action packed but its also hard time for lips. Carmex ensures a winter of lip-love! Whether it’s applied as a simple lip balm achieving a natural look or worn as a super smooth top coat on your boldest of winter hues, Carmex is a winter saviour.
Stockists – All good pharmacies nationally. Some Carmex varieties are available at selected Woolworths and Safeway, selected Coles and selected BIG W and Target retailers.
