It’s time your lips some much-needed TLC! Just like the rest of your face, your lips need to be exfoliated and moisturized. Here’s your guide to lip care in Singapore!
Importance of Lip Care
Don’t skip on the balm! The skin on our lips is very thin – and unlike the rest of our face or our body, it does not have sebaceous glands to produce natural oil. That’s why lips are more prone to drying out, and can become flaky and chapped. If neglected, your lips can even crack and bleed – that really hurts!
Some factors can also cause lips to become extra dry:
Using matte or long-wear lipsticks, which are pretty but tend to be more drying than cream formulas
Habits like licking the lips
That’s why you need to apply a lip care product to lock in the moisturize, heal cracked skin, and keep it pink and healthy.
Kinds of Lip Care Singapore Products
Lip Balm. Lip balms contain moisturizing ingredients and a thick wax (like beeswax or carnauba wax) that locks it in. There are medicated lip balms that can help heal cracked lips, as well as high-SPF lip balms that can protect you when you’re outdoors.
Tinted lip balms. These are a convenient combination of makeup and lip care! Your lips stay soft and supple, and you get a pretty hint of colour. However, most tinted lip care products don’t last very long or have very rich pigment, so you have to reapply them often.
Lip scrubs. Your lips can benefit from gentle exfoliation about 2 to 3 times a week. Unlike face scrubs, lip scrubs have very fine grains that won’t damage the thin skin on your lips. They also contain moisturizing ingredients like honey or plant oils that can leave your lips feeling smooth and
Lip masks. Treat your lips to this extra moisturizing treatment! Just like face masks, lip masks contain powerful ingredients for much needed hydration and regeneration.
Lip Care Treatments vs Petroleum Jelly
Some people like to use petroleum jelly as a cheap DIY lip care treatment. However, petroleum jelly can only trap moisture. Your lips may feel temporarily softer, but they won’t heal or become stronger.
A special lip care product contains ingredients that can actually nourish and protect your lips. This includes plant oils that are rich in antioxidants, Vitamin B and E for healthy and strong skin cell structure, and many more.
Some of the best lip care Singapore products also contain SPF 15, to protect it from the harmful UV rays.
