Treat those lips to some serious lip service! It’s not enough to just swipe a lipstick or gloss everyday. Lips don’t have oil glands, which make them unable to protect themselves from the environment. So without proper care, lips will dry out faster and become more chapped the longer they starve for moisture. This can cause cracking and bleeding. A basic lipstick will only provide limited protection. They need more! So prep those lips the way they deserve to be prepped by following Fly Gyal’s tips below.
1. Lip Exfoliator – Find one packed with natural oils like jojoba seed oil, shea and cocoa butters,and vitamins A,C, and E. Fresh Sugar Lip Polish or Bliss Fabulips are two of our favorites. Exfoliate gently two to three times a week.
2. Treat lips – Lip conditioners are loaded with healing powers to help restore lips. Our top choice Hourglass N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil. This amazing product is enriched with 14 essential oils and is fortified with vitamins A, B5, C, and E. It also has an, opulent 24KT, anti-bacterial, gold-plated tip to create a soothing effect on the lips.
3. Apply – Yes, there are products that can both add a splash of color and continue to nourish, restore health, plump, and moisturize. Dior Addict Gloss provides most of these amazing properties while providing gorgeous electrifying colors, giving your face an instant brightness.
