Owner's Manual on Lip Care

Don't wait for your lips to dry out, learn how to prevent moisture loss before it starts. Here are 3 basics of healthy lip care, to ensure your pout stays super soft year-round.

Routine

Lip skin is extra thin and doesn't product its own sebum, so it's crucial to apply a balm often (and avoid licking your lips) to maintain healthy moisture. Regularly eating cold water fish, like salmon, will help restore your skin's lipid barrier from the inside out. In drier weather, try swapping out your regular lipstick for a conditioning lip stain.

Circulation

Healthy circulation will plump, promote cell turnover, and boost the natural color of your lips. A simple DIY sugar scrub will do the trick: mix 1 part sugar with 1 part honey (for healing), or coconut oil (for extra moisture). Or, exfoliate by gently rubbing lips with a dry, soft-bristled toothbrush.

Overnight

To wake up with soft, moisturized lips, cleanse nightly with micellar water (basically just fatty molecules suspended in water, AKA makeup-removal magic). On your way to bed, replenish moisture with a hydrating mask like our FlashPatch® Hydrating Lip GelsNext, slather on a lip blam to seal in moisture and lock in your good work (try our Lip Service Gloss-to-Balm Treatment)
