One of the areas we often forget to pay attention to in our skincare regime is the mouth. If you're anything like me, it's often easy to remember all those evening and morning facial routines, but then when it comes to the lips they end up last on the list and only just get the tiniest bit of attention with a dab of lip salve or a quick slick of lippy.
So this week we thought we'd take a moment to give you a few easy to follow lip tips to get you set for the perfect pout in time for summer.
First up you need to break out the exfoliator. We love the Alumier Lotus Scrub - it's actually a gentle facial scrub but works wonders on the lips too. Its soothing ingredients provide a natural moisture with calming properties. There's also a great Yon-Ka product, Gommage 305 which is amazing for hydrating and purifying. Leave it on in the bath or shower and let the steam stimulate the product to plump your lips.
Lisa then recommends lip treatments to maintain healthy lips. Excellence code contour is an exceptional contour with renewal definition to give you more youthful and brighter lips. It's specifically created for the eye and lip contour area and its silky cream helps defy signs of ageing. Add to that IMAGE Ageless total pure hyaluronic filler and you have a very effective lip treatment arsenal. The IMAGE filler smooths and plumps the skin without an injection. It's a pure serum and helps to plump and fill lines.
After treatment its time for a good old moisturiser. We always recommend IMAGE Ormedic Balancing Lip Enhancement Complex. It's specifically designed to enhance the appearance and volume of lip contours and comes in a handy small size perfect for popping into your handbag.
To complete your lip routine add a slick of Delilah Colour intense cream lipstick which provides a soft creamy feel with a silky matte effect. It's enriched with spherical polymers for easy slide-on application and also contains Vitamin E.
Also worth a try is the Delilah colour gloss ultimate shine lipgloss. This is a gorgeous moisturising gloss which gives ultimate shine and lustre and has incredible staying power without feeling sticky - perfect for perfecting the final touches to your summer pout.
