Lips have been a topic of conversation for a long time, and for good reason. They’re more sensitive than the rest of the skin on our face which means they can dry out and get damaged much quicker.
That’s why the big question is always around how you can get a consistent healthy, plump and youthful looking lip all year round. Well, it doesn’t take as much work as you might think and surprise, surprise, it’s all about the ingredients.
Think of everything you put on your lips, from balm to lipstick, lip liner and more. It's important to make sure those products are feeding your lips what they need in order to stay healthy.
So, let’s talk about how you can successfully get that healthy and youthful looking lip all year round, no matter the season.
Exfoliate Your Lips - Gently
We’re not talking about lip scrubs here, in fact those are quite bad for your lips since the skin there is so delicate and thin it can actually do more harm than good in the long run.
If you’ve been using lip scrubs, don’t worry, it’s never too late to switch to something that exfoliates gently. Take our Perfect Pout Lip Mask for example. This lip mask contains a uniqueGel Cream technology which helps it slide onto your skin in a soothing way.
How does it exfoliate your lips if it’s so gentle? You can thank Papaya Enzymes for that. This ingredient works to gently exfoliate dry, flaky skin and complements the 22 Certified Organic Extracts to nourish the skin.
Additionally, the Perfect Pout Lip Mask houses two different types of Hyaluronic Acid which deeply hydrates your lips.
If you haven’t already tried out a lip mask of any kind and are still hooked on scrubs, give it a try and you’ll be surprised at what the result will be.
Since the skin on your lips is so sensitive and prone to damage, constantly promoting collagen stimulation is important. Using lip products containing ingredients that boost collagen will allow for your lips to stay plump, hydrated and youthful.
You’ll want to check for balms and even lipsticks to ensure that they have ingredients that promote collagen stimulation in your lips.
You may be wondering how a lipstick could do this since you may think they don’t normally have ingredients that nourish skin. But, lipstickscan focus on collagen stimulation! You just need to find the right products with the right ingredients. What are those ingredients you ask?
Well, there’s a few you want to look for.
Specifically, in our Perfect Pout Lipsticks and the LIP 20 Liner, you’ll find Maxi-Lip® which is a patented tri-peptide that works to specifically stimulate collagen synthesis. This is the key ingredient that plumps the lip line and contour for a natural fullness. So, you can put your lipstick or liner on knowing that it’s not just adding colour, but feeding your lip what it needs.
It also houses Hyaluronic Filling Spheres™ that are injected into the lip tissues and work to re-volumize the lips by being in contact with moisture. As those little spheres increase in volume, they fill in fine lines for a smoother surface area overall. This helps make lips look fuller, softer and more youthful.
Speaking of smoothing and softening…
