Get Ready For the Best Kisses With These Lip Care Essentials!

Our lips require protection from the sun rays and nourishment during cold winter days. Learn everything about effortless lip care routine.

 

The Secrets of Smooth and Soft Lips

 

The tender skin of our lips requires exceptional attention 365 days a year. There are a few tips you can follow to improve its condition right now:

 

  1. Never peel or pluck the skin of your lips. Such actions may provoke unpleasant issues in the future.
  2. Avoid licking your lips. It’s quite a bad habit that doesn’t bring any good. Why? Human saliva is full of enzymes that cause the dryness of your delicate skin.
  3. Remember about water balance. Yes, coffee is great but water is healthier.
  4. Always use quality products.

 

Underestimating the necessity of lip care may lead to early darkening, constant feeling of tightness, loss of contour, or even skin cracking and lip bleeding. All these conditions can be prevented if you devote as little as 10 minutes every day to taking care of your lips.

 

Lip Care Must-Haves

 

The selection of products for lips largely depends on the season and current issues. If we were to narrow down the choice to essentials only, we would recommend making your lip care kit from the five following goods:

 

  • A balm with SPF for sunny days
  • An ointment with rich texture for cold weather
  • Exfoliating goods
  • A mask for soothing the skin
  • Makeup remover

 

Don’t be alarmed by this list – lip care products are normally cost-effective and last for many months. Below, there’s a brief explanation of what and when you should use.

 

For Moisturizing

 

Lips moisturizing should become your everyday routine, regardless of the season and weather. Thousands of factors can cause dryness of lips: heat, sun exposure, cold weather, too much coffee during the day, wearing a mask, working in a room with an AC... Use hydrating products daily – lip balm of any type (in stick, gel-like or liquid) is not an expensive purchase. As a nice bonus, you can buy a lip balm with your favorite taste – from mint to berries.

For Nourishment

 

Cracked and chapped lips are in the need of good nourishment. Choose rich and oily products with a buttery texture, enriched with such components as coconut oil, vitamin E, jojoba, or shea butter. They will restore the healthy look of your lips and provide protection for the entire day. At the end of the cold season, it will notice the difference.

Special Care: Scrubs

 

Old skin cells should be removed from lips once in a while. But exfoliating lips with your ordinary face or body scrub is not the best idea – the pieces may be too big and harsh for the delicate lip area. Choose products with teeny-tiny abrasive ingredients that are specifically made for this zone. They exist in numerous forms: scrub, exfoliating stick, cream, or polish. Gently rub the skin of the lips using your fingers and apply a soothing product after. A nourishing butter or balm can be used in the end.

Give lips a spa treatment using masks

 

If you use face masks as a part of your skincare routine, you may remember that they have a hole in the lips zone. Why not combine care of your skin with lip care? For this purpose, you need a product with a gentle and rich texture. The choice is quite large: from patches for express nourishment to the products you can leave on your lips for the entire night. Choose between oils, creams, and butter with any possible effect you can imagine, including lip-plumping.

For UV filtering

 

Last but not least. The thin skin of our lips is in deep need of SPF products. Yes, lips can burn too. However, you cannot apply an ordinary body or face cream to this zone. Instead, let a velvety and light sunscreen created for the lip area or a balm with a UV protection filter take care of you. When getting ready for summer season, pay attention to SPF indicated on the tube – it ranges from 15 to 45.
