If there was ever a time to moisturize your lips, it's the winter. And with this winter being a real doozy, it's important that we keep our lips good and hydrated. Because, let's face it. The dry flaky look isn't a good look. Whether you're still rockin' deep, vampy lip shades or you've decided to move on to something brighter, the one thing you need to start with before you put on your lipstick is a set of smooth lips. So, let's talk about the best ways to moisturize your lips!

Here's the deal on how to moisturize your lips this winter...

First, you want to exfoliate your lips. I'm a bag fan of whipping up my own DIY lip scrub. You can also use a terrycloth towel or toothbrush and a bit of lip balm to slough of that dry skin too. The key is to get rid of all that flakiness, then you can maintain your soft pout by using the go-to lip balms and moisturizers that I'm going to share with you!

My favorite lip moisturizers...

rosebud salve lips

Smith's Rosebud Salve: This classic balm has been found in girls' makeup bags forever. And there's a reason so many of us consider it a go-to. It feels simply heavenly on and has a lovely, subtle scent. I've even been known to just wear that and nothing else on my lips some days.
