Replenishing the moisture your lips may have lost throughout the day should be an essential part of your evening skincare routine, so we have collated the best overnight lip treatment regime to keep your pout plumped-up and healthy.
The skin on your lips is incredibly delicate, and it's where you first see signs of dehydration and damage. Take a look at our top tips below to help keep your lips super hydrated, soft and smooth.
How to keep your lips healthy
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day. This will help to keep your body and cells hydrated, which then ensures your skin stays moisturised.
- Use a lip mask once a week. Like you would use a face mask, lip masks help to plump up the skin and provide a huge boost of moisture. If you don't have a lip mask, slather on a nourishing lip treatment, which will do the same thing.
- Make sure you use SPF on your lips. No matter the weather, invest in an SPF lip balm. Your lips are super delicate and require just the same amount of protection as your face and body.
An overnight lip routine
1.CleanseThe first crucial step in your night time lip care routine is removing any traces of product from your lips. The Clinique Take The Day Off Lids Lashes and Lips works to loosen make up's grip on your skin, gently lifting away any residue product for perfectly cleansed skin. The effective Take The Day Off formula budges even the most stubborn lip stains and liquid lip colour.
2.ScrubAfter cleansing, buff away dry, flaky skin with the MAC Scrubtious Lip Scrub. Take a small amount of the scrub and massage into your lips in small circular motions. The sugar-based Scrubtious buffs away dead skin cells to reveal smooth, supple lips. Available in gorgeous flavours, the scrubs are a real treat to apply and even condition the lips as they exfoliate.
3.HydrateThe final step in your night time lip care routine is hydration. Using a deeply nourishing lip product, designed for overnight use such as the Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment, will leave your lips intensely hydrated by morning. The Nightly Lip Treatment is enriched with Indian Gentian Extract and Seseame Seed Extract which work to visibly reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and laughter lines. Complete with a rich dose of Shea Butter, the Nightly Lip Treatment deeply nourishes the lips leaving them visibly soft and supple by morning.
