Beauty Tips: Your Lips

Although lips are a commonly forgotten area in beauty routines, they require moisture and nourishment just like the rest of the face. Lips require extra hydration and protection since they lack natural oils. Read on to learn three tips for keeping your lips plump, smooth, and healthy. 

1. Block the Sun

Lips are especially vulnerable to UV damage caused by the sun's rays. Harmful UV rays will not only age lips faster but they also increase your risk of developing skin cancer.

It is crucial to protect lips with a lip balm containing sunscreen - EOS offers an excellent option that is water resistant for 80 minutes and provides SPF 30 - each time you go outside. Also, be mindful that UV rays are capable of penetrating glass and clouds. This means sun protection should also be worn on the lips when riding in a car and even on cloudy, overcast days.

2. Moisturise Lips Frequently
In addition to always using a lip balm with SPF during outdoor activities, it is also essential to use regular lip balm on a frequent basis. Adding moisture to the lips throughout the day helps keep them supple and soft.

Look for a brand, such as EOS or Burt's Bees, that features a formula with natural oils, vitamins, and moisturisers. Adequately moisturised lips will be better protected against dry air, low humidity levels, and harsh weather.

3. Use a Lip Oil

Aside from using a lip balm during the day, consider using a lip oil at night to provide lips with an extra-rich boost of moisture. Brands such as Yes to Coconuts offer lip oils specially designed to drench lips with superior hydration.

Using a rich oil overnight will pamper lips and help keep them from becoming dry as the night passes. If desired, lip oil can also be applied over regular lip balm to lock in moisture.

Final Words

Overall, remember to consider your lips when completing your daily beauty routine. By providing your lips with extra moisture and adequate protection, they will remain softer and more youthful looking as you age.
