The lips need special care because their skin is thin and delicate, it dries easily and can crack due to cold, wind or salt water. Luckily, in just ten minutes we can make a big difference!
The lips do not have sebaceous glands that help keep the skin lubricated and protected, so they can dry out and crack easily. Melanin is also missing from the skin of the lips, which has the role of protecting from ultraviolet rays, thus there is a higher risk of sunburn and sensitization of the lip area. A simple lip care routine can be done in three steps:
With the help of a gentle scrub, specially designed for them, exfoliate the lips once a week, using circular movements.
Choose a gentle exfoliant that contains pomegranate seed and cherry granules - two exfoliating, antioxidant, moisturizing and rejuvenating botanical ingredients on the lips. And castor oil is very beneficial for dry skin, keeping it hydrated.
After exfoliation, it is recommended to apply a thin layer of lip balm or lip oil to form a protective barrier. At the same time, in the evening, before going to bed, apply a generous layer of intensive repairing treatment for the lips.
Opt for a lip balm infused with lush shea butter and pomegranate seed oil for hydration throughout the day. Pomegranate oil contains omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, effective nutrients for the skin, and is also great for having velvety lips.
When you are at the beach, use a lip balm with SPF to protect them from sun damage.
Nourish and color them!
A pigmented lip oil are ideal when you want intensely hydrated and discreetly coloured lips.
Soothing and moisturizing, without a typical glossy and sticky texture, the lip oil - the latest innovation in lip care - is a vegan botanical serum that combines the moisturizing antioxidant properties of pomegranate seed oil with a superb translucent glow.
It is recommended to use the lip scrub beforehand to remove dead cells and to help the moisturizing components of the lip oil to penetrate better into the skin.
