One of the keys to effortless spring beauty is a plump and kissable pout. Yet, aside from a swipe of color or touch of gloss, we often forget to give our lips the care they deserve before we dash out the door. Dermatologist Bruce Bart, M.D. tells SHAPE Magazine that our lips are like a sponge: “When exposed to moisture, they absorb water and plump up. When dehydrated, they dry out and shrink.”
If the thought of chapped and shriveled lips makes you cringe, you aren’t alone. Here’s how to get rid of chapped lips by using Eminence Organic Skin Care’s new Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 and classic Citrus Lip Balm in your daily skin care routine.
DAY CARE + NIGHT CARE
Unlike the rest of the body, the skin on your lips has no oil glands, making them more prone to dryness and peeling. While healthy, well-hydrated lips look moist and pink, dermatologist Dr. Jessie Cheung says, “Unhealthy lips are dry, cracked, and the surrounding skin is often wrinkly, red or irritated” (Bustle).
To keep your lips perfectly hydrated, we recommend moisturizing with Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 throughout the day. But, proper lip care doesn’t end when it’s time for bed. To prevent the transepidermal water loss that occurs while you’re sleeping, we recommend applying Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm before your head hits your pillow. This Harper’s Bazaar and Refinery29 favorite employs cooling peppermint, shea butter and sunflower seed oil to smooth roughness and give your lips maximum hydration.
ON THE GO + ON THE TOWN
It’s easy to neglect your lips during your busy day, but if your first instinct is to reach for your trusty chapstick, you may want to think twice. The petroleum found in most chapsticks doesn’t actually hydrate the skin, instead, creating a barrier that prevents valuable moisture from reaching our lips.
Like your go-to chapstick, Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15 is a convenient stick - but unlike conventional balms, it uses natural, organic ingredients like hydrating rosehip oil and extra virgin olive oil to keep your lips perfectly hydrated all day long. For an easy day-to-night transition or to prep your lips for a special event, pop Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm into your purse to give your lips a sexy, satin sheen.
Sun exposure and air pollution are two environmental stressors that can wreak havoc on our complexions, especially the delicate skin around the lip area. Our lips lack melanin, making them more susceptible to sunburn, and they are often exposed to the elements, causing them to quickly take on the visible signs of aging caused by dryness.
Protect your lips from the sun’s damaging rays with Eminence Organics Rosehip & Lemongrass Lip Balm SPF 15. The zinc oxide in this hydrating lip balm stick defends against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB exposure, keeping your lips moisturized and protected. Apply Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm to minimize the visible signs of aging caused by exposure to the elements. The natural peptides in this luxurious balm smooth the look of fine lines and plump deflated lips for a voluptuous and youthful look.
