With the colder months comes drier air.

Combine that with central heating or a cosy evening by the fire, and our precious pouts can begin to feel parched and in need of intense nourishment. Prepare for the season ahead with our essential tips for winter lip care...

Stay Hydrated 

Plump, nourished lips are a quickfire way to make us feel self-assured all year round. And because the skin that covers them is fragile and thinner than most other areas, dry lips are often the first physical sign we notice that our body is lacking water. Walking into a heated room after being out in the crisp outdoors can immediately cause chapping. The first step in preventing flaking and ensuring lips stay supple is to keep your whole body hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day.

Examine the Ingredients 

As with all skincare, we at La Perla believe it's important to know exactly what you are using on your body. When it comes to the delicate area around your mouth, seek out moisturising ingredients that will help strengthen the barrier. Other favourites of ours are vitamin E and vitamin A. These powerful skincare heroes will stimulate circulation and help regenerate new cells. And naturally, products that have clean formulations and are environmentally mindful will not only be kinder to your skin but also to the planet – something that benefits us all.

Invest in an Effective Lip Balm 

A trusty lip balm for winter is sure to ward off any temperature-related damage, especially if the tell-tale tightness around your mouth arises. To lock in moisture and keep lips looking perfectly pillowy, we created our luxurious Satin Lip Balm. Not only does this little wonder work to keep the area protected and enveloped in cushiony comfort, but it also delivers a gentle wash of colour in an everyday shade that flatters all skin tones, highlighted with a subtle, dewy shine. We use emollient argan kern oil in our formulation, which works to soothe and soften the lips, while active fruit extracts, such as lychee, promote hydration and offer anti-ageing benefits that will plump and protect, whatever the weather.  

Our founder, Ada Masotti, strived to uplift women from the inside out by sharing her views of femininity via her craftsmanship. This very outlook is why we endeavour to create products women will love to use while remaining truthful and transparent about how they're created. This clean lip balm has been expertly crafted with a formulation that is free from added parabens, fragrances, talc and D5 volatile silicones so you can feel all the more confident wearing it.
