You're probably tired of us harping on about lip care routines and why you need to have one. It's not just because we have lip balms and lip scrubs available in the LIPS section of our store HAHA. We genuinely do care and are passionate about looking after ourselves. It's winter time in New Zealand, so we'll be giving you the winter lip care schpeal.
To be honest, it doesn't matter what time of the year it is, your lips are still going to get dry, cracked, and crusty. Sounds kinda rough right?! Your lips need TLC all day everyday! But the reason why we are emphasising winter is because it is a brutal time of the year especially for your skin. The cold air, bitter winds, heated air indoors, low moisture levels and numbness all contribute to making your skin dry and tight.
Unlike your skin, your lips do not have oil glands and the only source of moisture is saliva inside the mouth. We don't tend to give our lips the same TLC as the rest of our face. Lips go through a lot and as you read this your lips might be cracking or you're finding yourself constantly licking your lips.
So, it’s important to take care of the health of your lips. There are plenty of ways to do this. The best way is to invest in a good lip scrub and a good lip balm.
Step 1: Exfoliate
Exfoliating with a lip scrub is good for softening and smoothing lips before applying a lip balm, lipstick, or when your lips are dry and peeling from cold wind or prolonged sun exposure.
Step 2: Moisturise
Moisturise your lips with a lip balm. Lip balms provide an occlusive layer on the lip surface to seal moisture in your lips and protect them from external exposure.
Step 3: Last but not least
Go about your business and don't lick your lips!
