Let’s face it: a lot of people forget to care for their lips. When you do your daily skincare routine, it’s important to include lip care as well. Your lips can get chapped, dry, and painful if you neglect them. \nWhat if you don’t know where to start? We have you covered. Here is the ultimate lip care routine to add to your regimen for nourished, soft lips. \n \nStep 1: Lip Scrub\nLip scrubs are some of the most underrated lip care products on the market. You need a good lip scrub to remove dead skin from your lips. Exfoliation gets rid of the hard, dry surface layer on your lips and exposes the soft skin underneath. \nIf your lips get chapped often, it’s especially important to get rid of dry skin buildup. Our lip scrubs contain sugar, a natural exfoliant. Rubbing the sugar scrub over your lips will gently scrape away flakes and dead skin to reveal lavish, luscious lips. \n\nUse your lip scrub during your lip care routine two or three times each week to keep your lips fresh and soft.\nPopular Flavors\nWe have multiple flavors of lip scrubs for you to enjoy. Flavored and scented lip scrubs make your lip care routine fun and exciting. All of our ingredients are natural and free of harsh chemicals. \nOur favorite lip scrub flavors include:\n\nWatermelon\n Pink Champagne \nBlack Cherry\nVanilla Bean\n\nEach of these lib scrubs contains shea butter, aloe vera, and other moisturizing plant-based ingredients. They also contain vitamin E extract and avocado oil for renewed protection against the environment. The oils seal your skin to lock in moisture and nourishment. \n \nStep 2: Lip Balm\nOnce your lips are exfoliated and smooth, they need a moisturizer to nourish them. Exfoliation can leave your lips dry and raw until you add a healing balm to them. Lip balms infuse your lips with hydration and softness for the perfect pout. You should always apply a moisturizing lip balm after you exfoliate. \nOur lip balms contain bakuchiol, a rejuvenating plant-based ingredient. Bakuchiol benefits include increased collagen production, which helps your lips grow new, healthy skin cells. Many people use bakuchiol as a retinol alternative for renewed, more youthful-looking skin. \nThese lip balms are free of petrochemicals and unclean ingredients. You can experience soft, smooth lips without compromising your values. \n\nAll of the lip balms in our collection give your lips a glossy shine without being sticky. When you wear these lip balms, your lips will be sweet and soft all day long. \nOur lip balms come in the same flavors as our scrubs: Watermelon, Pink Champagne, Black Cherry, and Vanilla Bean. You can mix and match or choose your favorite flavor to nourish your lips each day. Any time your lips feel dry, pull out one of these lip balms to hydrate and smooth your lips. \n \nStep 3: Lip Mask\nYou have probably heard of skincare face masks. Lip masks are the same thing, but for your lips! It’s important to give your lips the deep nourishment and hydration that you give your skin. Lip masks stay on overnight and soak into your skin to bring you extra softness and smoothness by morning.\nOur lip masks contain bakuchiol for extra nourishment. One of the bakuchiol benefits is improved skin cell turnover. This means your lips will feel brand-new each morning. Bakuchiol helps eliminate lines and cracks in your lips so that they can become smoother and more supple. \nAll you have to do is apply the lip mask before bedtime and let it sit overnight. You don’t have to rinse your lip mask off in the morning. When you wake up, your lips will be rejuvenated with deep nourishment from our clean, plant-based ingredients. \n\nOur lip masks come in three flavors: Pink Champagne, Black Cherry, and Vanilla Bean. Choose your favorite flavor for your lips to bask in as you sleep. \n \nLip Care Tips\nIn addition to regularly applying a lip scrub, lip balm, and lip mask, there are other things you can do to keep your lips soft and supple. Lip care products nourish and moisturize your lips, but skin health starts on the inside. Here are some tips to keep your lips kissable every day. \nStay Hydrated\nYour lips need water to stay moisturized. Especially during the cold months, your skin has trouble trapping moisture from the air around you. Your lips don’t have oil glands like the rest of your skin, so they can become dry and chapped quickly. \nIf you don’t drink enough water, even the best lip care products won’t keep your lips soft. Your body has to have enough moisture to keep your tissues supple and plump. Make sure you stay hydrated throughout the day for moisturized skin and lips. \nWear Lip SPF\nAlong with your nourishing lip balm, you should apply a lip SPF every morning. Sun exposure dries out your lips and can lead to skin cancer. Lip SPF is essentially sunscreen for your lips: it protects against harmful UV rays that damage your lips. To prevent aged, dry lips, apply lip SPF daily. \nAvoid Licking Your Lips\nIt might seem like licking your lips provides extra moisture, but this habit can dry out your lips. It’s natural to get the urge to lick your lips when they are chapped and painful, but it makes the problem worse. When you lick them, your saliva dries on the surface of your lips and leads to more cracking and dehydration. \nTry to break yourself of this habit and instead apply your nutrient-rich lip balm. \nDon’t Sleep in Your Makeup\nAfter a long night out, it’s tempting to fall asleep with all of your makeup on. As tired as you might be, you should always wash your face before bed. Product buildup can cake onto your lips and dry them out. This is especially true of lipsticks with drying ingredients like alcohol. \nMake sure you remove all makeup from your face before hitting the pillow each night. \nMassage Your Lips\nMassage improves blood flow to your lips for a plumper, more luscious appearance. If you want fuller-looking, tinted lips, try doing a few lip massages each day. Make small circles around the surface of your lips with your fingertips. This will draw blood to the area and improve your lips’ color. \nEat Nutritious Foods\nBesides all of the other health benefits of eating well, a nutritious diet can improve your lips’ texture and appearance. Vitamins and minerals are essential for your skin tissue to stay firm and supple. \nSome of the nutrients that improve your lip health include:\n\nZinc\nVitamin C\nVitamin A\nVitamin E\nAntioxidants \n\nThese vitamins and minerals can be found in nutrient-dense foods. Dishes that include lean meats, fish, berries, citrus fruits, and leafy greens will improve your overall health as well as your lips. One of the most important lip care tips is to keep your insides healthy so that your lips can glow on the outside. \n \nBenefits of Following a Lip Care Routine\nJust like your skincare routine, your lip care routine will improve the appearance of your face. Having soft, healthy lips helps you look more attractive and youthful. Even if you don’t give out smooches on the daily, you can benefit from a high-quality lip care routine. \nSome of the benefits of having healthier lips include:\n\nNo chapping\nNo dryness\nNo painful cracking\nNo bleeding\nNo skin flakes\nNo lip lines\nPlumper lips\nMore vivid natural lip tint \nImproved lip texture\nBetter kisses \nFeeling luxurious \n\nYour lips are one of the first things people see about you. It’s worth it to take care of your lips to enjoy a soft, luxe pout year-round. \nDuring colder months, you may have to apply more lip balm to keep your lips smooth and hydrated.
