Always prep before using a colour that may stay on your lips all-day. So, before you reach for your favourite lip shade, ask yourself “are my lips ready?”
Here’s why it’s important to prep your lips:
Your lips don’t have oil glands and they’re almost always exposed to the substances, pollutants and elements that may be roaming the air- even right now, as you’re reading this.
The skin on our lips is much thinner than the skin on the other parts of our body, making it easier for them to crack and chap. You might even find yourself peeling the skin off your lips. If you’re peeling your lips right now, then you need to stop and read on for ways to take care of your lips!
First, identify why your lips are dry:
Dry weather or dry air indoors
Not moisturising your lips
Excessive use of harsh or drying products like menthol, camphor, or salicylic acid
Too much sun
Excessive licking, touching or picking your lips
Not drinking enough water
Next, let’s try these tips:
One of the best ways to defend against dry, damaged lips is to make sure you’re hydrated from the inside out so drink lots of water to keep your lips hydrated!
Exfoliate your lips to remove dead skin on your lips and reveal a smooth surface. You can make your own exfoliation by mixing sugar and water – don’t rub in your lips too hard!
Invest in a good lip balm that will nourish your lips with antioxidants such as the WELL NATURE Moisture Seed Lip Care Set
Always remove your lip makeup before going to bed. Try the WELL NATURE Moisture Deep Cleansing Oil to remove that stubborn makeup
Use good quality lipsticks or lip tints that contain safe ingredients.
Plug in a humidifier to replace the moisture in dry indoor air.
Now you’re ready to pucker up and put on your favourite lip shade from the DewiChic Mood Lip Tint Collection.
