Pucker Up! 5 Tips For Perfect Lips


pucker up

Celebrity make-up artist Claire Alexandra Doyle (she’s worked with stars like Anna Faris and Rachael Leigh Cook) shares five good tips for keeping your lips in pucker-ready shape during the drying season, aka winter!

ONE:
Exfoliate

A gentle lip scrub will not only exfoliate your lips of those little flakes, but it can also hydrate them and help prep them to absorb your lip balm. Look for a lip scrub that’s made specifically for lips and is sugar based, which is more softening than salt or nut-based scrubs typically made for the face or body.

TWO:
Moisturize

Even when you’re not wearing lip colors, it’s important to keep your lips moisturized. I really love the results I see from argan oil-based lip care products; they absorb quickly and they don’t leave a thick or sticky residue. I recommend Moroccan Magic’s Peppermint Eucalyptus Lip BalmApply your lip balm to your lips after brushing your teeth before bedtime. 

THREE:
Choose Well

Give your lips a little color that also has some added moisturizing benefits. Choose lip colors that are that are creamier in texture and have hydrating ingredients like shea butter and/or jojoba oil.

FOUR:
Invest

While everyone loves the trend in matte and long-wearing lip products, our lips need an effective and hydrating option for makeup removal. Invest in a good makeup remover that is conditioning and alcohol free, like one that is micellar water based.

FIVE:
Drink

Did you know that symptoms of dehydration can show in your lips and make them dry? Remember to drink water to help you stay hydrated. Bored with plain old water? I make a pitcher of water with cut up strawberries and fresh mint leaves or grapefruit and cucumber, fruits that not only add flavor, but contain over 90% water themselves!
