5 Tips for a Better Lip Care Routine
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
A great lip care routine starts with hydration. There’s a reason doctors and beauty experts are always preaching the importance of drinking water, and that’s because it has numerous health benefits for your skin, lips, and body.
Whether I’m at my desk, on the couch, or traveling, I always have a huge tumbler full of water with me and try to drink at least 70 ounces or more daily.
Moisturize Day and Night
In addition to staying hydrated, a great lip care routine means keeping your lips moisturized both day and night. I recently started using the Burt’s Bees Lip Butters new at Ulta Beauty in my lip care routine and I absolutely LOVE them!
These 100% natural lip butters are ultra-creamy with responsibly sourced Shea Butter and come in 4 yummy, botanical flavors including Vanilla Clove, Lavender & Honey, Orange Blossom & Pistachio, and Rosemary & Lemon. All four of these smell incredible but my personal favorites are Vanilla Clove and Orange Blossom & Pistachio. I also really love using Lavender and Honey before bedtime.
I absolutely adore the pretty tins that these lip butters come in (which is fully recyclable), and love that these hydrate my lips all day with a beautiful, soft sheen. They’re the perfect size for carrying in my purse or pocket and I love keeping one at my desk during the day.
Add Lip Care To Your Makeup Routine
Another way to improve your lip care routine is by incorporating lip care products into your makeup routine. Since I first started wearing makeup one of my favorite things to do is to apply a lip product like the Burt’s Bees Lip Butter over my favorite lipstick. Not only does it help moisturize the lips but it adds a light, glossy sheen that looks beautiful.
I also love wearing lip butters on days where I don’t want a full face of makeup. A simple swipe of mascara, a little blush, and a touch of lip butter on the lips gives you a pretty, fresh-faced look, and as you’re also hydrating your lips, it’s a total win-win!
Avoid Bad Lip Habits
A great lip care routine also means kicking bad lip habits to the curb. We’ve all done it, but bad lip habits such as licking your lips, biting your lips, or picking at dead skin should definitely be avoided if at all possible. These things are extremely irritating to the lips and in the colder months, simply make things worse.
If it’s helpful, try applying some lip butter to your lips every time you feel the urge to mess with them. It might take some time and persistence, but eventually you can break these habits and your lips will definitely thank you for it.
Exfoliate/Scrub Your Lips
One of my favorite, simple beauty hacks is using a slightly dampened toothbrush to lightly exfoliate my dry lips 1-2 times a week. This little trick works wonders in removing dead skin from the lips and helps lipstick and lip products glide on more smoothly.
If your lips are extra flaky and dry, you can also create a DIY lip scrub using your favorite Burt’s Bees Lip Butter. Simply mix together 1/2 tbsp lip butter and 1 tbsp brown sugar and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Once refrigerated, rub the scrub on your lips with your finger or a toothbrush, and rinse with warm water.
