We’re always talking about healthy skincare routines, but what about having a lip-care routine? Our lips are important and require regular TLC. Here are some tips to maintain your pout (it’s so easy), along with our favourite pick of lipglosses, to celebrate the looming Day Of Love. Kissable lips, here we come!
Exfoliate: Just like your skin, your lips need to be exfoliated at least twice a week. This helps to keep them moisturised and chap-free and prolongs the wear of your lippy. To exfoliate, gently use the bristles of a toothbrush on dry lips to remove the dead skin or try a trusted lip scrub, like Essence’s Lip Care Booster Caring Lip Peeling, which removes the dead skin cells with lemon-peel powder and then nourishes them with 10% lip oil.
Treat: Using a lip treatment with collagen-enhancing properties each night is an effective way to add plumpness to your pout. The Sensai Total Lip Treatment smooths, heals and revives dull-looking lips.
Nourish: When shopping for a nourishing lip product, look out for ingredients such as shea butter or jojoba seed oil. The MAC Valentines Glow Play Lip Balm contains these as well as mango seed oil to ensure your lips stay soft, nourished and smooth from the moment you apply. Plus, it’s got a cheeky hint of colour too.
Mask: A mask designed to keep your lips conditioned and ultra-soft once you wake, you say? We’re sold. The Essence Lip Care Booster Overnight Lip Mask contains 10% oat milk extract which helps to regenerate and nourish the lips. Apply before bedtime and wake up to the softest lips ever.
