Many people pay much attention to facial skin care, but usually neglect the lip. It is generally considered that lips can get adequate protection with lip balm. But in fact the lips should be cared fully, because that the endurance of lip against environment is the weakest.
The skin of lip is fragile and exposed to the air, so it is vulnerable with environmental damage. Furthermore, it hasn’t sebaceous gland to secrete grease, so the lack of a natural protective film does not only easily cause moist loss, but also has no resistance to the UV of sun.
How can we protect our lips effectively? The following methods can help you restore the moisturized lip:
- Use the appropriate lipstick. Inappropriate lipstick will directly hurt the lips, such as causing dryness, peeling, chapped lip and so on. It’s best to choose lip balm, lip gloss or lip glaze which has a certain sun protection factor, for the reason that the UV do harms to lip.
- Apply lipstick to keep moisturized before sleep.
- Regularly do lip scrub. Firstly, use a hot towel to soften the lip, and then gently scrub lip with salt or scrub cream. Finally wash the lips with warm water. Then coat it with a thick layer of lip balm.
- Apply lip balm every day (2 to 3 times a day).
Your lip will be fully cared and become hydrated all the time if you chronically follow the above tips.
