Are You Interested In Lip Care?

If Chandler can wear lip balm and Joey can do a commercial on it, then what’s stopping you from getting on board this lip care train? Your Friends have been and are telling you, courtesy of Netflix, to wear lip balm. So, do it!

We might have gone a bit tad overboard, but surely you can see why. You are probably now dying to know what tips and tricks we are about to impart.

Let’s begin:

Importance of Lip Care

Have you ever thought about giving the same amount of attention to your lips as you give to your face? Every night, you sit in front of your bedroom vanity mirror and give your face the full spa treatment. Yet, you bemoan about your lips that how discolored and chapped they are.

Well, enough is enough! Take that exfoliate, and give your lips a little scrub too. Well, not the one for your face, of course. Buy one that’s specially made for lips.

The reason you need to take care of lips is that they are constantly exposed to environmental elements. The more moisture gets sucked out of your lips, the drier they become. This puts them in a vulnerable state where the skin starts to break and bleed.

Since this is a prominent feature on your face, you look older. To stop these signs of aging, you need to exfoliate your lips regularly and apply lip balm so that the moisture gets absorbed in deep.

Things You Will Need for Your Lip Care Routine

Now, let’s talk about the ultimate lip care routine. If you don’t know where to start from or how, then read the following advice to get on track:

As mentioned earlier, lip care is all about moisturizing your lips. So, the first thing you need to do is increase your water intake. According to the CDC, women should drink at least 13 cups of water daily. The more moisturize your body has, the less chapped your lips will be.

Always have a lip balm in your purse and on your dressing table. Make sure that the lip balm you are applying does not have ingredients like eucalyptus or menthol because they can cause irritation. Apply the lip balm generously day and night.

Lip masks give you better look lips in just 20 minutes. So, give these a try too.

In order for the moisturizer to be absorbed by your lips, you need to first exfoliate them. Use lip scrubs with calming ingredients such as honey and Jeju extracts.

Chapped and cracked lips and dark skin are all signs of aging. Try red light therapy to stimulate collagen. This will help increases firmness in your lips and give them a more youthful appearance.

5 Tips for Lip Care

We have covered the basic points of lip care, which are to stay hydrated and use lip balms. Following are five lip care tips that you can easily add to your lip care routine:

1. Do Not Lick Your Lips

When you lick your lips, the saliva on your skin quickly evaporates, leaving your skin dry. The enzymes in saliva are too harsh for the lips, and that’s why the skin cracks. Always keep a lip care stick in your purse and apply it after every few hours.

2. Remove Makeup

Makeup always creates a barrier on your skin. By letting it stay overnight, your skin pores become clogged due to all the chemicals. So, use a makeup remover to wipe your lipstick, exfoliate it with a scrub and then apply the lip balm.

3. Massage Your Lips

To stimulate your lips, massage it with essential oils for 5 minutes every day. This boosts circulation and keeps your lips looking fresh.

4. Use a Honey Scrub

To lighten your lip color and make it pinker, use a scrub that contains honey, such as Honey and Milk Scrub from Aꞌpieu. Since honey is a humectant, it keeps the lips moisturized. Moreover, the enzymes in honey offer great lip care for dark lips.

5. Use a Lip Plumper to Get the Blood Circulating

If you want your lips to appear fuller and bright, then use a lip plumper. We are talking about that lip tool that gives you a pout but a simple product such as Devil’s Plumper by Holika Holika. It contains collagen and jojoba oil that improves your skin and chili extract that gives a tingling sensation. This helps rub off dead skin and make your lips appear brighter and more beautiful.
