Drink more Water.
I recently read that the more specific the goal, the more likely you are to keep it through out the year. Therefore, my actual resolution is to drink 64 oz. of water a day. And, yes this was also my new years resolution for 2014 too. Things started off great. I don’t know what happened. I downloaded an awesome app, WaterLogged, and I was killing it. I mean just really blowing my goal out of the water. (pun intended) So much so, that I decided I didn’t need to log my water intake with the app at all. Shortly, thereafter I stopped drinking as much water and as a result my lips have been awfully chapped this winter.
I know this is a dehydration issue and not a lip balm failure! The reason I know this is last year when I was drinking water my two favorite lip creams did not fail me, and they wouldn’t be failing me now if I just drank more water.
Baum de la mer got me through winter storm Nemo, and can definitely handle the return of the polar vortex. “This intensely reparative balm is formulated with a potent concentration of Miracle Broth… It soothes on contact, softens roughness and helps rejuvenate seriously dry lips.”
I know what you’re thinking, $55 for lip balm is crazy. It isn’t, my tub lasts me for years. Not to mention I’ve added a new favorite to my lip balm cycle. Homeoplasmine. I’m simply in love. An obvious present from my favorite Parisian, Alienor. This balm pretty much covers it all. “Homeoplasmine is a make-up artist’s cult, backstage beauty favorite to soothe any kind of irritation – from insect bites to allergies and chapped lips as well as sore noses due to colds.” I’ve been dabbing it on my poor over blown nose, and it is working wonders.
Any other resolutions you are taking on in 2015?***beauty always comes from within, photo taken by Amanda Teague, xoxo behind the mirror***
