Whether you are a die-hard classic red lipstick fan or you rotate through a series of lip-glosses, we know you love to show off your lips. But the best way to keep your pout in tiptop shape is with proper care.
Weekly exfoliation, either with a lip scrub or lightly with a warm face cloth, helps show the skin on your lips a little love. Apply a hydrating lip balm right after you clear away any dead skin. The best balms contain ingredients like shea butter, aloe vera, coconut oil and vitamin E.
A mega moisturizing lip oil will also help you keep your pout in perfect condition. Try these, or any other hydrating balm, at night before bed when your skin is working its hardest to rejuvenate.
Always worth noting, if you take proper care, your lips will thank you!
Tips & Tricks
A tinted lip balm with SPF will work wonders if you apply it just before you leave the house, as it will work to protect your lips from harsh winter winds and UV rays.
Some good lip habits to get into? Try to cut down on touching your lips. Your hands can carry bacteria that will dry them out. Same for licking your lips. While it may seem seductive, your saliva carries enzymes that work to keep your mouth clean, but can harm the delicate skin on your pucker.
Did you know?
The reason our lips are so delicate, is because the skin on our lips is thinner than the rest of our body. And also it lacks protection because our lips do not have oil or sweat glands, meaning they are more susceptible to environmental stressors, including salty food and harsh wind.
