Whether you are a beauty enthusiast and follow a 10-step skincare routine, or you are a skincare minimalist with just the essentials in your stash, a lip mask is a must-have for you.
Let’s find out in this blog post.
When it comes to skincare…
Most people neglect lip care.
Some think a lip balm is enough.
Some rely on their toothbrush for lip exfoliation.
Most people believe that a lip mask is an unnecessary part of the lip care routine. ‘It’s extra. It’s excessive. You don’t really need it.’
We hear you!
We were there too!
Until we used a lip mask.
And, we are sure by the time you finish reading this post, you will believe in the power of a lip mask too.
#1 The skin on your lips is different.
Unlike the skin on your face, the skin on your lips lacks the glands that keep the skin moist. This is one of the reasons why your lips tend to get dry and chapped. Also, we irritate the skin on our lips by lip biting and lip peeling. That’s why our lips need a little extra TLC than the rest of our faces.
#2 Sun damages the skin on your lips
While most people use sunscreen regularly, they forget to use sun protection for their lips. The top layer on the lips is much thinner than the rest of the face. This makes our lips prone to sun damage. A lip balm with SPF can help shield the lips, but it cannot provide the thorough treatment that a deep-penetrating lip mask can.
#3 Lipsticks (matte or glossy) dry out your lips.
No matter what formula you use, tinted lip colors make your skin dry. If you use liquid lipsticks, you will experience chapped skin on the lips more frequently. A lip mask will penetrate deeply into the layers of your lips (yeah, deeper than your lip balm), and ensure that your lips are smooth enough for a sleep lip color application.
#4 Lip Masks aren’t just hype.
Yes, the trend of lip masking is rather new in the US. However, lip masks have been a part of Asian skincare for a long time. Korean beauty enthusiasts have relied on lip masks for perfect-looking pouts. Lip mask isn’t just a fancy word for lip balms. Lip masks are packed with ingredients that moisturize and treat the lips on a different level as compared to other lip care products.
#5 Lip Masks VS Lip Balms
Lip balms contain wax that prevents moisture from escaping the lips. It doesn’t provide deeper hydration. Lip masks dig deep into the layers of the lips and provide hydration. They smoothen the skin and improve the overall texture of lips. However, the lip sleeping masks don’t lock in the moisture.
