Did you know that most women have a skincare routine but not a lip care routine?
It’s true! In the past, I was one of these women. Thankfully, I’ve been able to give my lips some love and attention with the help of the new Chapstick Total Hydration collection.
Let’s face the facts.
After a full day of parenting, working, and keeping the house in order, it can be easy for moms to forget to take care of their lips and skin! We all know that our lips are essential for kissing our children’s faces! With that in mind, I stick to the skincare routine that I know works for me
In addition to my skincare routine, I’ve created a lip care routine that helps keep my lips healthy, smooth, and hydrated.
Keep reading to find out what they are!
First things first,
Remove all your makeup
I’ll be the first to admit that I have been guilty of not following this tip in my early 20’s. Eventually, I realized that leaving makeup on my face overnight was not smart for my skin: AKA waking up with pimples the next morning and wondering why. Now, I always ensure that I remove my make up and cleanse my face at the end of a long day.
You may or may not know, but removing dead skin from your lips is a must! Just like our skin, our lips need to stay soft and smooth so that we don’t get any infections.
I always reach for the Peppermint (or Sugar Plum) Conditioning Lip Scrub from ChapStick to gently exfoliate and wipe away the dead skin off my lips.
For daily care, my go-to is the Sweet Nectar lip balm from ChapStick. This 3-in-1 formula provides up to 8 hours of moisture for smoother, healthier-looking lips.
Pro Tip: Keep some ChapStick in your purse! Your lips will thank you 😉
A great way to keep your lips nourished overnight is to use a Vitamin Enriched Lip Oil. With the ChapStick Total Hydration collection, you get to pick from awesome flavours Peach Tea and Sweet Nectar.
Tip: Use alone during the day or add to your favourite lipstick for a subtle shine.
Last but not least, have fun with your ChapStick by using one of the tinted colours. This subtle tinting lip balm is enriched with Omegas 3, 6, and 9, as well as Shea Butter to instantly soothe and moisturize.
Some other tips to remember are:
In addition to the above, make sure you drink the recommended amount of water a day! Like our skin, our lips need to be hydrated from the inside out.
Massage your Lips
This may sound weird but massaging your lips will help improve the blood circulation and ensure that they’re getting the nutrients they need.
By following the above steps, you are well on your way to healthier and smoother hydrated lips! Also, I’ve got some great news. The ChapStick Total Hydration collection is now available in Canada and available for purchase at your local Walmart. Make sure you pick some up today 🙂
