One part of our skin that tends to get overlooked when conducting our skincare routine is our lips! Lips are still part of your skin and need the same amount of tender, loving care that we give to our face! Which is why we’ve compiled a list of tips and recommendations for you to try out so you can get those kissable, soft, plump lips!
What Causes Dry Lips
Lips are the most sensitive during the Winter season due to the dry indoors and the cold outdoors. The combination of such harsh climates lead to chapped or cracked lips because unlike other parts of the skin, lips do not have any oil producing glands to help with moisture. So keeping those pretty lips of yours hydrated is very important!
Stop Licking Your Lips
You might have licked your lips before to help re-moisturize them, but licking lips can actually lead to more dryness! In extreme cases it can also lead to yeast build-up or really painful inflammation. So instead of licking your lips, keep a lip-balm on you for easy reapplication!
Extremely Dry Lips
If you are experiencing extremely dry lips, we recommend trying out an exfoliating lip treatment 1-2 times a week to get rid of all the dry, irritated skin on the lips! We know how tempting it is to pick off any of the dry skin that’s left but try to resist! Picking and biting your lips extensively can lead to more damage and irritation!
To combat extremely dry lips, we recommend trying out the FaceTory Berry Jam Lip Sleeping Mask with Strawberry! The lip mask is a jam-like texture making it glide easily upon application and locks in the moisture so your lips stay smooth and supple!
SPF on the Lips
Believe it or not, your lips also need SPF just like how your skin needs SPF! Like we said earlier, lips are still skin, which makes them vulnerable to UV rays, so looking for a lip balm that has SPF in it will have your lips thanking you in the long run!
We all know the struggles of having dry, cracked lips, so we hoped that this helped you realize just how important it is to take care of your lips just like how you take care of your skin!
