The Full Lip Service
After two delays, one layover, and just barely escaping the air travel cancellations that followed that post-Christmas snowstorm in the Midwest (deepest sympathies to everyone waiting in that endless customer service line at Denver International), I got back to New York last week just in time for the city’s latest cold snap. The combination of in-flight dehydration and bitter temperatures left my lips in a state of disrepair, requiring action that I often overlook when it comes to my beauty regimen: mouth maintenance. As a firm believer in less-is-more, I’ve always been a lip balm-and-go kind of girl. No fancy primers or glosses for me, thanks. Give me an emollient tube of Kiehl’s or a stick of Burt’s Bees and I’m golden. Occasionally though, exfoliation is necessary to keep your pout in smooth, soft condition. Sara Happ’s certified organic Lip Scrub comes in handy at times like these, with six decadent flavors (Crème Brûlée, anyone?) to help you luxuriously work your way back to a supple smile. Bonus tip: With its sweet almond, jojoba, and macadamia nut oil formula, Happ’s new Lip Slip makes for a welcome post-scrubbing treat.
