Your New Winter Essential: Dr Lipp Nipple Balm

We all know winter can be extremely harsh on our skin. Going from outdoors to indoors, and from freezing, windy weather, to central heated rooms takes its toll.

My skin doesn't look dry, but I have noticed a slight difference over the colder months, especially in my lips. There have been days when I've literally been able to peel a layer of skin off my lips (lovely), leaving them red and very sore.

The constant use of liquid lipsticks and drying glosses probably doesn't help either, so over the last 3 months I have been dedicating myself to the use of Dr. Lipp Nipple Balm. Yes, that's right, it is called nipple balm, bear with me,

Someone somewhere must have discovered that nipple balm, used by new mothers would be beneficial in soothing, moisturising and being an overall lifesaver for dry, cracked lips. You can of course use this wonder product anywhere you please, as its uses are pretty extensive; cuticle care, eyebrow taming, pigment mixing, eye glossing, to name a few.

Apparently it is favoured by make up artists all over the world because it's colourless, tasteless and basically a staple in any beauty guru's make up bag.
So what is it? It's medical grade lanolin, and lanolin is taken from the wool of sheep. Ask any sheep and he will tell you that he relies on lanolin to protect his wooly coat from the elements when he's perusing high up in those rocky terrains. If it's good enough for Shaun the sheep, it's good enough for us!

If you too are finding your lips are struggling with the cold winds and constant changes in temperature, then I do recommend giving this miracle balm a go. It's really thick and you do need to give it a good squeeze to get it out of the tube, but the tiniest amount melts on contact with the skin, forming a luxurious, protective barrier. Your skin will thank you for it!
