These Serums Provide More Than Just Lip Service
These nourishing lip serums penetrate deep and heal from within
You can’t boast of beautiful lips without providing them the care they deserve. At the very least, you should ensure that they stay hydrated every day to prevent them from getting chapped. Lip serums promise to do just that, and much more.
Lip serums are more effective than balms, that can only treat chapping to a certain extent. More importantly, serums have ingredients (such as retinol) that protect lips from sun damage and heal the cells.
Which lip serum to go for
You could go for a serum formulated with strawberry extracts, which can make your lips look smoother, or honey, which can remove dark pigmentation and exfoliate the lips. A serum with an essential oil such as almond oil can rejuvenate your dry and chapped lips, making them soft and supple.
Shea butter is another power ingredient that can keep your lips moisturized for long hours. It is perfect for those cold and frosty days when the lips dry up all too often.
How to use a serum
Lip serums are great multitaskers. Some can be used as a primer, while others can provide a glossy coat.
Apply a thin layer of the serum over your dry lips and wait until it is fully absorbed. You can put some balm on top of it or apply a lip colour to give your lips some shine. There are some lip serums that can be applied throughout the day.
