So there's a polar vortex heading our way next week, and what with extreme temperature drops and it generally being way into winter, we thought it might be the perfect time to bring you some winter lip tips. Here are our top 5 winter lip tips.
First up, during the colder winter months, it's important to treat your lips as part of your daily skincare regime, this will prevent dryness which causes them to become ‘chapped'. Secondly something that not many people are aware of is that matte lipsticks tend to dry out the delicate skin under extreme conditions, so change your matte lipstick for a creamy hydrating formula, even if it's just for the week ahead.
It's also a great idea to use a gentle exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and encourage skin cell turnover up to three times a week. Next up apply a moisturiser or night serum before bed to restore and replenish skin after the days' bombardment. Look for products containing Vitamin C, It’s one of the most powerful antioxidants and helps protect your skin against free radical damage caused by the environment, which can break down your collagen and encourage wrinkles... and let's face it, that's something we could all do without.
Finally, whilst out and about or at work, keep a moisturiser or hydrating spray in your bag to top up as required throughout the day. Our Luminescent Base is the ideal handbag companion for the winter months - you can snap one up here.
With these basic tips, you should be all prepped to keep your pout looking perfect as the cold air strikes at the end of this week. If you need more skincare help, why not pop into our Knightsbridge clinic for a consultation, or give us a call on 020 77520217.
