We all have different lip goals. Some of us want our lips to look fuller. Some of us want our lips to be smoother. Almost all of us want to prevent or improve the look of lines or wrinkles that can form around our lips. We’re here to help! Check out these easy tips for getting great lips.
Tip #1 for Great Lips: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.
The skin on our lips is unique. It's very thin and lacks the oil glands that regulate body temperature and help keep skin smooth. To prevent dry and chapped lips, hydration is key.
Carrying a water bottle with you wherever you go will make it easier to get the recommended daily fluid intake your lips (and the rest of your body) need to stay healthy. You should also consider keeping a hydrating lip balm in your bag. Look for one that’s packed with lip-loving ingredients, such as shea butter and essential oils.
Tip #2 for Great Lips: Take care of the skin around your lips.
You can help prevent fine lines around your mouth that make your lips appear thinner—and you appear older—by giving this area the same anti-aging attention you would the rest of your face. In addition to applying a daily SPF, consider using a moisturizer with skin-strengthening ceramides and hydrolyzed collagen.
Tip #3 for Great Lips: Use Collagen-Infused Lip Products
While we can’t guarantee the same results you’ll see with injections, our collagen-infused lipstick and lip gloss options will definitely be less painful to your face and wallet. In addition to making your lips appear fuller, these products won’t settle into lip lines or lip wrinkles and deliver beautiful color payoff in one swipe. Now those are reasons to smile!
