Once the middle of fall starts to set in, my skin starts to change along with my lips. This is when combination skin and chapped lips come into play for me. It can be such a struggle. Even worse, if my lips stay chapped, it opens up the door for cold sores to sneak in. If you’ve ever had a cold sore before, you know 100% that they are a complete pain and no fun at all.
Whenever I have had a cold sore in the past, they always seem to appear at the worst possible time, leaving me feeling extremely insecure. Cold sores makes me want to hide away from everything and everyone until they’re gone. Have you had a similar experience before?
Thankfully, I have found some ways to protect my lips in the fall and winter months.
FALL & WINTER LIP CARE:
Exfoliate // Up until two years ago, I never exfoliated my lips… Yikes! I can’t believe there was a time in my life when I just let my lips suffer like that. Exfoliating your lips helps to remove the flaky, dry, and dead skin cells from your lips. Your lips will become more smooth after you take the time to hydrate them. One of my favorite ways to exfoliate my lips is to use a lip sugar scrub.
Prevention & Protection // One of the most important parts of lip care in the fall and winter months is prevention. You want to do everything you can to prevent dry, cracked, or chapped lips, as well as sneaky cold sores that may appear. One of my little jewels of prevention is Herpecin L. Herpecin L is a unique, pharmacist-recommended* product for the treatment, protection, and relief of cold sores, sun and fever blisters. I use Herpecin L as a lip balm to keep my lips hydrated and protected. It is uniquely formulated with dimethicone for protection, and sunscreens to help guard against the sun’s harmful rays.
Healing & Relief // Sometimes cold sores have a way of sneaking in even when you’ve taken the precautions to avoid them. Luckily, Herpecin L helps to heal and relieve chapped lips and cold sores. I love that Herpecin L is safe to use everyday to help relieve painful cracking of lips and cold sores without numbing or drying. Herpecin L provides instant relief from burning, itching, and oozing, while at the same time protecting the lips with medication that helps to speed up recovery. No one wants to suffer from cold sores for a week or longer! No thanks.
While cold sores can make you feel insecure, they’re nothing to be embarrassed about. You’re not alone in getting them. There are 50-80% of U.S. adults that suffer from cold sores. That’s a large number, which is why it’s important we talk about prevention and relief to help break the stigma of cold sores.
You can purchase Herpecin L from Walmart. You NEED to have this little jewel on-hand this fall and winter. Protect your lips. Love your lips!
