Your Lip Care Routine: 6 Top Tips To Take Care Of Your Lips

Fuller, smoother and healthier-looking lips is something we’re all looking to achieve, but it can be hard to know how to care for your lips sometimes. In the world of beauty, we’re used to hearing about skin and hair care routines, but it’s not often we hear about lip care routines. However, if you’re looking to achieve a healthy and plumper pout, a lip care routine may be just what you need.

In this article, the UKLASH experts will break down the perfect daily lip care routine in 6 simple steps, allowing you to celebrate your super natural beauty, your way - getting you one step closer to hydrated, nourished and fuller-looking lips.

Why Do You Need A Lip Care Routine?

Our lips play a huge role in our everyday lives, so it only seems fair that we take good care of them, making sure they’re nourished and cared for.

But also, unlike other areas of skin on our bodies, our lips don’t have sebaceous glands, meaning they don’t naturally produce oils to keep themselves moisturised. And while you may be accustomed to licking your lips - we’re here to let you know that isn’t enough! Excessively licking your lips can actually cause dry or chapped lips, so purchasing the best lip care products and getting into a daily lip care routine, can be the best way to keep your lips nourished, plumped and fuller-looking.


6 Top Tips To Take Care Of Your Lips 

1. Purchase The Perfect Products
Before we get started, it’s important to make sure you have everything you need to give your lips a full makeover. Alongside our new UKLIPS Plumping Lip Gloss, which will help you achieve hydrated and fuller-looking lips, you will need other powerful products such as a good lip scrub, lip mask and a lip balm containing SPF. Once your beauty bag is ready with all of your lip essentials, you’ll be ready to get started with your lip care routine.

2. Keep Your Lips Clean
The first step in your lip care routine is to make sure your lips are clean and free from any make-up. To achieve this, use your favourite oil-free cleanser and gently wipe away using a cotton wool pad. The UKLASH Lash & Brow Wash is in fact a perfect choice to remove any and all makeup, including lipstick and lipgloss. It’s powered by gentle micelles which help to dissolve dirt and make-up, as well as nourishing plant extracts, such as Aloe Vera and Apple Water, to leave your lips feeling hydrated, soothed and cleansed. 

3. Exfoliate Your Lips
The next step is to drive away any dead skin and dryness getting in the way of you achieving smooth, nourished and healthier lips. The best way to do this is with a lip scrub 1-2 times a week - any more and you become at risk of damaging your lips so try not to get carried away. Apply the lip scrub to the lips and rub in a circular motion for around 30 seconds using warm water, followed by a final rinse to wash away any dead skin cells and leftover lip scrub.

4. Indulge In A Lip Mask
To give your lips an extra boost of hydration we suggest indulging in a lip mask around 2-3 times a week. Look for lip masks that offer super hydrating and nourishing ingredients such as Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid and natural extracts and oils that can help to hydrate and lock in moisture, resulting in fuller, plumper and healthier-looking lips. Apply a generous layer to your lips before bed, allowing the nourishing formula to work its magic while you sleep. In the morning, wipe away any excess with warm water and a cotton pad, leaving behind smoother and moisturised lips.

5. Protect With SPF
Protecting your lips against UVA and UVB rays is just as important as using SPF to protect your face, body and hair. In fact, it may be even more important given that your lips lack melanin which can act as a natural defence against the sun, so applying a form of sunscreen to your lips is a vital step in keeping them nourished, smooth and healthy. We suggest finding a protective lip balm that offers at least a rating of 30 SPF and applying 30 minutes before leaving the house to keep your lips protected from the sun and other environmental pollutants.  

6. Soothe & Hydrate
It’s time to nourish and hydrate your lips using your favourite tinted balm or nourishing lip gloss. Our new UKLIPS Plumping Lip Gloss is powered by nourishing ingredients that will also leave your lips plumped and complete with a high-shine finish. Arriving in two shades - Rose and Clear, the Plumping Lip Gloss can either be applied as the final coat on top of your favourite lipstick or tinted balm or can be applied on its own for a plumped and high-shine lip look. Its innovative 3-in-1 design is powered by natural extracts and vitamins, such as Jojoba Seed Oil, Aloe Vera Extract and Capsicum Annuum Fruit Extract, that work to boost hydration, leaving behind nourished and fuller-looking lips with a high-shine finish. 

 

Top Tip: Seasonal Lip Care

Lip Care In Summer…
For days when the sun is out for longer, it becomes even more important to apply a protective lip SPF to ensure your lips are protected against environmental pollutants and sun damage. As well as applying a protective lip balm 30 minutes before going outside, why not bring your lip SPF with you on the go? This way, you are able to re-apply when you are out, ensuring your lips are protected against UVA and UVB rays all day long. 

Lip Care In Winter….
In the colder months, your lips are more susceptible to becoming dry, chapped and sore. The best way to protect your lips and prevent them from becoming dry is to increase how often you moisturise and hydrate them. If you are suffering from dry lips, we suggest ramping up how often you use a lip mask overnight, increasing from 2-3 times a week to 4-5 times a week. This will give your lips a hydration boost while you’re sleeping, inside and away from the cold, and give them a better chance at staying smoother, healthier and in turn, fuller-looking.

At UKLASH, we’re all about accentuating super natural beauty and helping you discover a healthier, bolder and stronger you. We hope you find this simple step-by-step guide helpful and that you are able to incorporate these steps into your daily super natural beauty routine - leaving your lips nourished, fuller and healthier-looking!
