Cold weather, dry weather, hot temperatures, wherever you are in the world…. your lips need some LOVE! I have been diligently treating my lips every day, and I wanted to share from my experience what treatments are stand out to me.
First of all, why is important to treat our lips? The major reason is quite obvious: we don’t want dry, cracked, or flakey lips. For more cosmetic reasons, treated lips make for much better lipstick applications, which gives a very flawless finish. AND lets not forget that soft, hydrated lips lead to softer kisses…..!
I love wearing color on my lips everyday, so treating them in the daytime hours doesn’t make much sense for me. UNLESS you use an amazing lip treatment from MURAD. Then I would suggest putting it on every morning when you are putting on your other skincare products. The Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips from Murad is excellent. I use it on my models everyday. When I’m done moisturizing their skin, I put this on and let it seep into their lips. No need to rub or blend, it literally soaks right in within minutes. Here’s what it does:
This ground-breaking lip formula infuses lips with collagen amino acids to help reduce the appearance of vertical lip lines and wrinkles for a plumper, fuller, and more youthful appearance. It promotes healthy, natural collagen and microcirculation, instantly smoothing and softening the lips and entire lip area. This soothing serum does not contain color or shine, and builds the look of lip volume without aggressive exfoliation or irritation.
What else am loving? I have been religiously using La Mer ‘the lip balm’ every night before bed. I am kind of mildly obsessed. I love the way it feels, the way it tastes, and obviously how it makes my lips feel. I know La Mer is the creme de la creme, so at least we can feel the magic in any case with the lip balm!
Thinner than any other area of the face, the lips are virtually defenseless against subtle changes in wind, temperature and dryness, requiring special attention. The Lip Balm is a luxurious and intensely reparative formula that works on contact to soften roughness, relieve discomfort and help rejuvenate seriously dry lips. A potent concentrate of La Mer’s nutrient-rich Miracle Broth™ renews the delicate lip area while a patented Lip Lipid Complex delivers moisture and strengthens lips’ moisture barrier to help prevent further damage. It’s flavored with cool, refreshing mint.
My other obsession is something I’ve told you about in the past and written about it HERE. By Terry Baume De Rose is da bomb! This is a great daytime lip treatment because it has COLOR! I love the way it makes my lips feel, the smell is NEXT LEVEL, and the colors are tinted in the most perfect way.
This ultra-rich product is a precious salve to care for and strengthen the cuticles.
Its creamy and delicately rose-scented texture, which is shiny without being sticky, coats the lips in an incredibly natural glossy finish. In an instant, the lips are lastingly smoothed, plumped up, supple and protected!
What are your favorite lip treatments? I am always in the market to try new ones, so let me know! Cheers to soft, hydrated KISS KISS soft lips! Xx
