3 ingredients to search for, in lipsticks

Bright colored lipsticks are a good way to cheer up any makeup. But cold weather can turn your lips so dehydrated that you can’t exactly use lipstick to cover the imperfections. Moreover, bold lipsticks require perfectly moisturized lips. If you want to be able to color your lips and look flawless, what you need to do is look carefully for the ingredients, on the lipstick packaging. Try to find products that contain ingredients similar to the ones used in the lip balms, and especially look for these 3:


Vitamins A, C, and E

These antioxidants are the best in speeding up the skin’s natural repair systems and by directly inhibiting further damage. You can find them altogether or separately; they all help the lips retain moisture and fight against wrinkles and aging.


Natural Oils

Coconut, jojoba and peppermint oils are some of the most hydrating for the lips. They heal the damaged skin and protect it while they make it soft and kissable.



They are generally referred to as moisturizers and help to soften or treat dry skin, by increasing its ability to hold water in the tissues. Most emollients are forms of oil or grease, such as mineral oil and lanolin, but they are also found in natural ingredients, like aloe vera.
