5 Tips for Luscious Lips
Summer can be hard on your skin — and that includes your lips! Rena Levi Skincare offers 5 tips to keep those lips soft and hydrated, not just during this season, but all year-round.
1) BUTTER THEM UP
To keep beautiful lips from
chapping and drying out, you
can massage Shea butter, or
even olive oil directly on the lips.
Do this nightly to achieve a
natural glow and to add moisture
to the lips.
You can also apply both of these
products on top of your lipstick
during the day to keep the
moisture level up and add shine!
2) SCRUB THEM DOWN
Gentle exfoliation of the lips
removes dead cells and reduces
the appearance of cracks and
dryness. This is an important step
in lip care.
You can use a soft tooth brush
(other than the one you use for
your teeth) daily to gently scrub
away the old and reveal the new
skin beneath. This keeps the lips
looking beautiful and fresh.
3. COLOR IS NOT ENOUGH
When shopping for lip color, whether
gloss, pencil or lipstick, be sure and
check to see that it includes agents
which add moisture such as vitamin E.
Also be sure that it provides sun block
to protect lips from the damaging effects
from the sun.
4. WAIT ONE MINUTE
When it’s time to apply a new layer of lip
color, wait one minute.
Wet a Q-Tip or cotton swab and run it
over the lips to re-hydrate them prior to
application of the new lip color to prevent
5. TAKE ADVANTAGE
Give your l lips extra moisture by
applying the left over eye cream that’s left
on your fingers. This will help to add one
last step in your regimen to help before
going to bed.
