Step 1: Cleaning
As I have a mixed skin type my T-zone is more prone to acne and to blackheads. That is why I need to take special care and clear these areas thoroughly. Until now the best product I found for preventing blackheads is the Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser. I use this product every morning and it is the second time I restock...which is kind of atypical for me because I normally like trying out new products on the market.
Step 2: Moisturizing
After thoroughly cleaning, you need to moisturize. In winter it is still important to use a moisturizer with a minimal SPF. You can of course increase the SPF level in spring and even more in summer. At the moment I use the Ultimate Moisture Day Cream. This one has SPF 15, which suffices for me in winter.
Step 3: Moisturize your lips!
Even if sometimes you might have the tendency to just put some moisturizer on your lips and think you are done, you should think twice. I have already read posts about how lip care is addictive. However, in winter hydrating your lips is an essential step you should include in your morning routine. You should repeat this for a reasonable number of times a day.

My absolute favorite in lip care is the Aloe Lips with Jojoba. After applying it, your lips are instantly moisturized for a long time. No stickiness or unpleasant smell and taste. I keep restocking on this since I discovered it. It is definitely superior to Nivea, Labello or other drugstore brands.
