It can have a big impact on your pout.
We take such good care of so many areas of our body. Our scalps enjoy invigorating scrubs, our hands are privy to hydrating creams, and even our feet get polished up with a pedi every now and then. Our lips don’t always receive the same sort of TLC, but with the advent of lip serums there’s no reason not to tend to this very delicate, very thin, very exposed skin.
“Unlike lip gloss, lip serums are a lip care product,” notes celebrity aesthetician Natalie Aguilar. “Lip serums can offer relief to irritation and sensitivities, provide deep hydration and smoothing benefits, and can even help with discoloration.”
Think of lip serums as an important step in a proper “lip facial.” First comes cleansing and a gentle scrub, then comes serum followed by an oil or balm to seal all the goodness in. If desired, Aguilar says you could apply a lip mask after the scrub and then rinse it off before applying your serum and balm or oil.
Anyone with dry, dehydrated, or sensitive lips can benefit from adding a lip serum to their beauty routine — especially in the summer when sun exposure, chlorine, and salt water can leave lips irritated. Also, those who tend to wear heavier lip products or long-lasting lip makeup can especially reap the rewards since it’ll help products apply more smoothly and look better.
