Before we begin, let’s just take a minute to pay ode to our lips. Think about it, not only do they play a crucial role in our daily life, but they’re responsible for talking, kissing, eating and expressing emotion – whether that be smiling, or frowning (the prior, we hope).
With that in mind, here at Cult Beauty we believe it’s time to pucker up and give your pout the lip care it deserves. Don’t know where to begin? No problem, we’ve got you covered. Keep scrolling as we kiss-and-tell on everything from how to keep your lips healthy to the best lip care products to invest in and more…
WHY IS LIP CARE IMPORTANT
Lip care is just as important as skin care. Why? Because, unlike the skin on the rest of your body, your lips don’t have sebaceous glands (AKA the part responsible for producing oils that keep you moisturised). And while, like many you may naturally lick your lips to keep them nourished, doing this actually leads to even more dryness! So, simply put, using lip balms, lip oils and lip exfoliators is key to keep your pout perfectly smooth, soft and supple.
HOW TO KEEP YOUR LIPS HEALTHY
Now we know why it’s important to take care of your kissers, it’s time to find the best lip care routine that ensures your lips stay healthy…
First things first, eliminate flaking, dry and dead skin that inevitably build up throughout the day. How? By exfoliating 1-2 times per week as part of your evening routine – any more than this can lead to irritation. To use a lip scrub, gently rub in the formula using circular motions for approximately 30 seconds before rinsing with warm water.
