For some reason, the lips don’t get the attention they deserve when it comes to hydrating the skin. With countless routines for foreheads, elbows, and even cuticles, why is it that we still believe the only way how to keep lips soft is to wipe them with a sticky finger of petroleum? Unless hiding behind a mask all day, chapped lips can’t be concealed. Lipstick makes matters worse and can end up gathered around the flakes of skin, a rather unflattering look. Not to mention they are also irritating, painful, and an all-round nuisance. There are a number of factors that can cause dry lips including cold weather, spicy foods, and sun damage. However, there are also a number of ways how to keep the lips soft, all year round.
Exfoliate Your Lips
We want to start afresh, so the first step is to exfoliate your lips. Removing any build-up of dead skin will give you a smooth base to work with. However, please note that if you’re wondering how to exfoliate your lips, it’s with an entirely different method to the one used to scrub your elbows and ankles. Harsh scrubbing can result in cracks in the skin which may cause more dryness. There is a specific way how to exfoliate your lips.
How to exfoliate lips
As the skin is so delicate, to keep the lips soft it’s best to be gentle with them. Although we want to remove those irritating flakes, there’s better ways of doing so without the use of harsh lip scrubs and toothbrushes. Our Intensive Lip Treatment acts as a 2-in-1 exfoliator and moisturiser so not only does it remove unwanted skin and improve texture, it zaps moisture back into the lips whilst doing so. Simply massage it into your lips before bed and let it work its magic overnight.
Use an Intensive Lip Treatment
Now that the rough, dry skin has been removed, we want to improve the moisture barrier on the lips. This can be done by simply reapplying the same intensive lip treatment you used to exfoliate the following morning! You may have already heard of our unique, LaH6 complex. If not, it is a formula specifically designed to draw water into the skin and lock it into place. Along with Shea Butter to help renew the skin cells you have just exfoliated, the blend of ingredients found in the Intensive Lip Treatment will re-plump the lips with hydration. If you’re wondering how to keep the lips soft all day, you can use it throughout the day as a lip balm or under lipstick for a smooth base.
