The importance of a good lip care routine

The fragile skin of your lips is exposed to a lot of harmful environmental stressors, such as temperature changes, sun and dry air. A consistent lip care routine can help you keep the skin of your lips hydrated, prevent chapping and keep your lips soft and voluminous. By following a daily lip care routine, you maintain the health and beauty of your lips all year round. After all, a radiant smile starts with lips that look well-cared for.


Why is the right lip care so important?

The skin on our lips is thinner than the rest of our skin. Lips also lack sebaceous glands and capillaries. This makes our lips particularly vulnerable to dehydration, which can cause the skin to crack. Paying careful attention to your lips will prevent pain and irritation, and preserves their natural softness and elasticity.


Different types of lip care at Skins

The right products can help you keep your lips cared for and moisturised. This doesn't have to be complicated; it can be as easy as consistently wearing a lip balm. Would you like to take your lip care routine to the next level, however? Then this blog from our Skins Experts will introduce you to effective serums, scrubs and masks that will visibly transform your lips.

Create soft, smooth lips with a lip scrub

Lip care is just as important as taking care of your face and body. An essential step that cannot be missing from any skincare routine is removing dead skin cells through an exfoliation. This process has an anti-ageing effect as it stimulates blood circulation and cell regeneration. Using a mild lip scrub will give you beautiful, full lips that look soft and smooth. Ideal before applying a nice lipstick to create an even lip look. In addition, it allows caring lip products you apply afterwards to penetrate deeper into the skin, so exfoliating is also very effective before applying a lip balm or mask.

The Microdermabrasion Smoothing Lip scrub by Dr. Brandt is a treatment for lips that both exfoliates and conditions. It is enriched with natural sugar crystals and soothing sunflower seed oil to keep lips soft and supple even after exfoliation. For those looking for a milder, but still effective lip scrub, we have the 270 Gentle Lip Scrub by L:a Bruket. This lip scrub with a botanical blend of three mild scrubs is specially designed to gently exfoliate your lips, without drying or irritating them.

Discover the many benefits of a lip serum

Now that we have highlighted the importance of lip scrubs in lip care, it is time to pay attention to the benefits of a lip serum. Lip serums are concentrated, active treatments that work at a deeper level than a standard lip balm. They can contain a range of skin-friendly ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, peptides and different types of oil. Lip serums are usually lightweight and are absorbed quickly, making them perfect to wear under lipstick or lip gloss. They can help plump lips, reduce fine lines and improve the texture of lips.

If you want to give your lips a mild plumping effect and a youthful glow, the Lip Serum with Retinol 8 by Verso might be for you. This powerful lip serum conditions, softens and moisturises, and plumps up the lip contours. Ideal for mature skin to reduce fine lines, thanks to its anti-ageing ingredients retinol, peptides and hyaluronic acid. The Rose Hyaluron Lip Treatment by Kat Burki is also a highly effective treatment for the lips. A rosehip seed extract stimulates skin renewal and hyaluronic acid provides a beautiful glow.

An intensive overnight lip mask treatment

Lip masks are a special treatment you can use a few times a week or as needed for an extra boost of hydration. Lip masks are rich in skin-restoring ingredients such as vitamins, oils and butters. Everyone can benefit from the intensive regeneration of a lip mask. Especially in autumn or winter when lips are exposed to cold, wind and temperature changes as extra support. Also, if you suffer from dry, chapped or cracked lips, a mask can be the extra help you need to make your lips soft, smooth and healthy again.

Buttermask for Lips by Kiehl’s is an overnight treatment enriched with coconut oil and mango butter. Leaving the lip mask on the lips overnight allows the active ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin and work their magic. The result is hydrated, supple lips that look fuller. The skin barrier of the lips is restored, so they are better protected from harmful influences throughout the day too.

Daily hydration with a lip balm

At the base of any good lip care routine, lip balm is essential. Lip balms come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have one common purpose - to moisturise and protect your lips. Lip balms work by putting a protective layer over your lips to retain moisture and prevent them from drying out. They often contain ingredients such as beeswax, cocoa butter, shea butter or coconut oil, which are known for their moisturising and softening properties. Some lip balms also contain vitamins, antioxidants or sun filters for extra protection.

One of our favourites is the intensive Lip Balm Luxe Conditioner by RéVive. Each soothing swipe of this balm repairs, moisturises and protects lips from drying and environmental damage. The unique applicator provides a cooling, comforting sensation and makes it ideal for conditioning when you're out and about. Do you prefer a seductive touch of colour? Then choose the Afterglow Lip Balm by Nars in the universal shade Orgasm. Thanks to this balm's ultra-rich, softening ingredients, you instantly create smooth, supple and full lips.

Protect your lips from harmful UV rays

Although we often think of sunscreen as something just for our skin, our lips deserve just as much protection from the sun's harmful rays. This is because the delicate skin of the lips is extra vulnerable. This makes lip care with SPF an essential step in any lip care routine, especially in summer or when you go out in the bright sun. Lip products with SPF not only help prevent dryness and flakiness, symptoms that often occur after sun exposure, but also have a good anti-ageing effect. The Hydrating Lip Oil SPF 30 by COOLA Suncare combines the hydration of a lip oil with the volume of a lip gloss. The lovely, soothing formula enriched with SPF 30 gives a sublime shine. Ideal for the beach or terrace when you want to impress with radiant lips but still want to enjoy your time in the sun with confidence. Or combine protection with a beautiful tint with COOLA Suncare's Mineral Liplux SPF 30. This SPF lip balm gives lips a natural-looking colour and is enriched with natural butters and oils for a moisturised feel.
