December 20th, 2016
The countdown to New Year’s Eve is on! For many, the ball dropping at midnight is followed by sharing a kiss to celebrate the coming of a new year. Whether your plan is to snuggle up on the couch with your loved one or hit the dance floor with a new cutie in the club, you want to make sure your lips are in tip-top shape for when the clock strikes 12! Follow these four tips from Carmex® and renowned NYC Dermatologist, Neil Sadick, M.D to have healthy, kissable lips just in time for that New Year’s kiss!
Ring in 2017 With the Perfect Pout: 4 Expert Tips
#1. According to Dr. Sadick, “the skin on your lips has no sebaceous glands, and cannot make its own oils to keep it moisturized.” Apply NEW Carmex Comfort Care™ Lip Balm ($1.99), formulated with natural Colloidal Oatmeal and cold pressed fruit seed oilto restore and maintain moisture, to help keep your lips looking healthy and beautiful. Your kissing partner will love the fruity taste of Mixed Berry, Sugar Plum or Watermelon Blast!
#2. When putting on your makeup before the big night, apply Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Sticks ($1.59) in the flavor you like best. Available in Cherry, Strawberry or the Original flavor, use under your lipstick as a primer and over lip color for a shiny, glossy finish.
#3. Dr. Sadick recommends drinking 6-8 glasses of water daily to get fuller, more hydrated lips. “Avoid licking your lips,” says this expert – “it damages the protective barrier and leads to further dehydration. When you have the urge to lick, apply lip balm instead.”
#4. If your lips have a tendency to become chapped or dry and flaky, prep them in the weeks before New Year’s Eve with Carmex® Classic Lip Balm Jar ($1.59) to leave them feeling smooth and kissable for the big night. Throw it in your bag or clutch in case your lips start to feel dry or touch ups are needed.
