10 Reasons You Should Be Using A Lip Butter Year-Round

five swatches of Pili Ani's Moisturizing Pili Lip Butters in Barely There, Barely Red, Berry, Choclát, and Mint

Think about it: Your lips are exposed to heat, cold, acidic food, pollutants, and makeup the whole day, every day. How do you keep them healthy and soft? Lip Butters in particular are especially kinder to your lips because they're packed with nourishing, natural ingredients like essential oils and botanical extracts. You might only be using moisturizing lip products in the winter, but we’ve got some reasons you should be applying them year-round.

  1. In the colder months, lip butter protects your lips from the elements. The combination of wind and cold during the winter can dry out your lips, and the dry heat indoors only exacerbates the problem. When you use lip butter every day, you’ll help your lips heal and protect them from further damage.
  2. In the summer, a lip butter keeps your lips from peeling and cracking. Sun exposure leads to dry flakes and chapped lips. Keep your pout smooth and supple with a creamy lip butter to seal in moisture. 
  3. Lip butter helps heal chafed skin caused by springtime allergies. Spring allergies can make you miserable, and they can dry out more than your lips. Blowing your nose constantly leads to redness, blistering, and dry skin. A vegan lip butter can actually be multi-purpose, and you can use it on rough patches on your cheeks and nose. 
  4. Using lip butter daily helps keep your lips nourished and healthy. The ingredients in lip butters have natural oils that nourish your lips, making them heal more quickly from damage.
  5. Lip butter is great for your cuticles, too! Applied before bed or when you’re about to put on gloves, it can help keep your ragged, dry cuticles soft and smooth.

  6. Natural lip butters help lipstick look better. You use primer under your foundation, but what do you use under your lipstick? Applying lip butter before you put on lip products helps fill in fine lines to make your lipstick look smoother and last longer.
  7. Lip butter can moisturize lips dried out from medication. Many medications can have a dehydrating effect on lips, but lip butter can help replace the moisture that’s lost and keep your pout soft.
  8. If you drink or smoke, lip butter is a necessity, year-round. Could your lifestyle habits be drying out your lips? The chemicals in cigarettes, alcohol, and even coffee can leave lip-drying residue behind, but you can counteract that with lip butter.
  9. Lip butter protects your lips from daily stress. When you make lip butter part of your daily routine, your lips won’t be as affected by the weather and things you consume. You can even apply it before you wash your face, to protect your lips from the dehydrating effects of facial cleanser.
  10. Lip butter is good for everyone. Lip butter comes in many variants—colorless and tinted—so it’s not just people who wear makeup.
