My two beauty-based resolutions for this year: take better care of my skin and wear more lipstick. And by extension, I'm also vowing to better look after my lips. But how to maintain a smooth and hydrated pout while keeping it colorful? 

First, drink more water. Second, use Fresh's Sugar tinted lip balm.

 

More grown-up than your childhood ChapStick, the Fresh treatment is formulated with moisturizing meadowfoam and black currant seed oils, antioxidant grapeseed polyphenols, and vitamins A, C, and E. Adding to its hydrating properties, the balm's key ingredient is sugar: The sweet substance is a natural humectant that locks in moisture (and tastes delicious).

In case all that wasn't enough, Sugar's defensive SPF 15 keeps damage from harsh UV rays at bay.

The stick comes in seven shades, and we love the balm in berry for January. The sheer raspberry hue adds a nice pop of mauve color that's on-trend with winter's moody palette.

To get soft and shaded lips of your own this season, stop by a Sephora store and pick up Fresh's Sugar balm for $22.50.
